Your Body: Flex Nimbo Program

by Rashad Devoe | Special to Lacrosse Magazine Online

As a strength coach, I look for every edge to give my players, and a year ago we found a piece of equipment that has definitely given our players the edge: the Flex Nimbo.

The Flex Nimbo is a rubber band suit that provides constant resistance along all movement planes. This is better than a weighted vest, and the neuromuscular demand that it puts on the body is incredible.

If you are looking to increase your speed, strength, vertical jump, footwork and all-around flexibility, then a Flex Nimbo program is the way to go. It adds resistance and increases the intensity of the workout, along with working on balance and coordination.

Start with a dynamic warm-up. Then try these three drills while wearing the Flex Nimbo. Video has no source Url
