U.S. Ski Team Optimizes Power AND Endurance

Nordic combined is the combination of
ski jumping and cross country, where the ultimate winner is the first person
across the finish line. The challenges of Nordic combined are pretty simple. You
have ski jumping, which is a powerful, explosive sport, very much a fast twitch
muscle fiber sport. Then you have the cross country side, which is a very slow
twitch, endurance based sport. The challenge is combining those two
sports together. Halo Sport is a training tool that
helps us accelerate our explosiveness and our endurance training. We started
out with a research study that was really cool and tested the product to
see what kind of a difference it would make. We saw that we were able to
repeat movements with precision more often with Halo Sport. That was
something that was really groundbreaking and open my eyes to the power of Halo Sport. With Halo Sport, we are able to learn a
process or a function much quicker, whether it’s on the ski jump memorizing
our position for the in run or the flight position in the air. Or, on the
cross country side, where we can learn the tempo and the cadence for skiing up
a hill. We could also endpoint that to a certain course on the World Cup
circuit. Our entire team is using Halo Sport, as
well as athletes from other sports. I think every athlete is looking for an
advantage some way or another. Halo Sport is a proven device that is
giving an advantage to many Team USA athletes.
