ATHLETES DO IT FASTER WITH THE W.A.G.

Increase Speed And Running Efficiency With the Weighted Agility Glove.

Here at Draz Athletics, we strive to create innovative multi-functional products to help athletes of all ages and stages of the game reach their highest performance potential. Our featured product, the Weighted Agility Glove, does just that.


How Does the W.A.G. Help You Run Faster?

THE SCIENCE OF RUNNING:

Your lower body responds to upper body stimulus. Every action above the waist is countered below. Your hands and feet coordinate simultaneously, so a slow, weak, inefficient  upper body will be countered by a slow, weak, inefficient lower body.


GO AHEAD, TRICK YOURSELF:

Adding weight to your hands with the Weighted Agility Glove builds resistance as your feet and hands move together. When used for speed training, the W.A.G. overloads resistance to the arms. The removable finger weights allow you to adjust the amount of resistance. As weight is taken away, your body is “tricked” into moving faster.


THIS IS NOT YOUR DADDY’S WEIGHT TRAINING:

You’ve never had a training aid like this. Gripping an average dumbbell or weight is bulky and forces continuous tension in the arm. With the W.A.G, you can remain in a relaxed state, allowing you to build muscle memory and train more efficiently. Not to mention, you look cooler than the guy still running around holding dumbbells.

BREAK FREE FROM THE BULK:

The W.A.G leaves your hands free to run drills and focus on proper form and mechanics in your sports-specific motion. Because you are free to grip, you can catch, throw, dribble, pass, pitch, set, spike, hit… well, you get the picture.


Stay Tuned! The W.A.G. helps with more than just running. More to come- drills and tips from top baseball and softball coaches on how you can Train Your Game!
