When training the first 5-10 yards of a sprint, heavy resistance training is the way to go. This can be accomplished by having one athlete manually resist another athlete, or by pulling an object like a sled or tire. The Sprint Resistor is designed to be used in either situation. Connecting both ends of the leash to the back of the vest creates a handle for a training partner to hold onto, while connecting only one end to the vest leaves the other free to attach to a weighted device.
