There are a number of ways in which resistance can be applied to running drills. The shoulder resistance harness makes it easy to build explosive speed and power in the lower body. This drill has two primary applications. When performed at slow to medium speeds, it can be used as a warm up for dynamic/explosive movement preparation. When performed at maximal intensity, the drill works great for power development.
Don the shoulder harness. Ensure it is secure. Make adjustments as needed. Have a partner grasp the handle at the opposite end of the nylon lead. The job of the partner is to provide moderate level resistance. Ensure the nylon lead has an initial starting resistance. There should be no slack in the line.
Begin running in place. Incorporate the use of arms swings. Slowly advance forward. Perform the drill for up to 30 seconds.
IMPORTANT: Do not try to overpower the person providing resistance. Forward advancement should take place slowly and methodically.
Secure shoulder harness. Have partner provide moderate resistance. Run in place, then slowly advance forward. Perform drill for up to 30 seconds.
