Do you want run faster than Bolt or jump further than Edwards?
VIRTUAL TRAINER Multisport (VTM) is the LED Light Strip that moves your TRAINING up to next level, the best AID to improve your athletic performance in SPRINT disciplines.
The Virtual Trainer Multisport helps you to get more results from your training, it gives you a LED light reference that leads you at desired speed and acceleration and shows you how fast you need to run or jump to become the next world record holder!
Virtual Trainer Multisport Short Run Solution:
Virtual Trainer Multisport (VTM) Short Run V1.0 package comes with the Handbag (dimensions about 300 mm width – 250 mm high – 150 mm deep) , the SmartPad (119 x190 mm) and the LED Strip in a Coil (25 -50 meters).
The embedded microprocessor unit that is driving the LED strip is fed by 12 V internal battery. The SmartPad is hold on the Handbag and is removable being operated at the longest distance of about 15 meters.
As soon as the LED Strip is connected to its socket on the Handbag and the VTM is switched ON the whole LED strip is lighted. Then, VTM is ready to be operated by the SmartPad.
VTM is addressable and controllable by your own pad or smartphone as well, just typing its ip address in the browser.
Included Training Modes:
The RUN mode provides the LED light spot moving according to a rising speed curve. The curve shape is calculated by a mathematical model that has been validated by data collected from the average behavior of several real cases taken from performances of both top rank and regular athletes. This curve trend can be trimmed by the user.
The ELASTIC mode moves the LED light spot according to a path composed by an acceleration stroke, a constant speed phase and a deceleration stroke. The acceleration and deceleration strokes are set as a percentage of the total DISTANCE by the user.
When JUMP mode is selected, once that starting sequence is expired, a series of equidistant fix LED light spot is lighted from the start position to the set DISTANCE. The distance among these spots is defined by the user.
Additional Training Options / Upgrades
The following Optional Modes are not included within VIRTUAL TRAINER MULTISPORT Short Run V1.0, but are available upon request:
- Set your VTM at the speed you would like to reach (i.e. 10.0 m/s) and a LED light by its multiple moving spots will provide you a constant speed moving reference to follow. Every moving spot is positioned 1 meter away from the spot ahead and behind so the runner can easily catch the closest to him.
- This mode provides a series of fix LED light spots reference with the purpose to show the position where feet must contact the ground during run. Assuming that you want to run 60 meters in 7.14 seconds, before starting you will see all the spots of your ideal stride. After start every spot will change color from the first one to the last one according to the time pacing defined by yourself.
- This mode refers to the Jump mode included in the VTM short run v1.0. But in this case one LED light spot only is switched ON. Then, the closest spots, either toward right or toward left, will be switched ON in random way following the time defined by the athlete. This function allows to practice promptness in reacting and strength when changing direction.
Suggested Training Workouts
Training your reactivity by VTM
VTM is the ideal tool to train your starting phase of 100 and 200 meters race. Workouts focused on improvements of reactivity and power progression along the first 30 meters can really bring you to next level. Set your VTM in RUN mode, input 20 meters as DISTANCE and TIME equal to 3.0 seconds. Make 10 repetitions by setting Number of repeats to 10 and carry out your resting time between repetition, i.e. Rest Time equal to 80 seconds. Repeat this sequence decreasing the time until you reach 2.8 seconds.
Just run avoiding great bounds that force your legs but keep thoughtfulness on reacting time and on the “pulling effect” coming from the LED light. This helps you in becoming very quickly in starting phase.
Strengthening drill by VTM
As well known, the stride in flight phase is calculated just multiplying the trochanter height by 2.3 for men or 2.2 for women. Set the VTM in JUMP mode and input the Spot Distance according to this rule taking into account your physical data. Then, you can strengthening your legs by both drilling multiple bounds at huge stride and by plyometric workouts done with one or two legs.
The further advantage provided by VTM LED light spot reference consists on the quick spots setting. This allows you to easily test different spot distances. Do not forget that a very strong correlation occurs between multiple bounds distance and final 100 meters race time.
