Endurance Sports

Strength training has proven benefits for endurance sports athletes, for which the kBox and the kPulley offer highly potent solutions.

With flywheel training on the kBox and kPulley coaches get versatile and portable (kBox4) devices for efficient and evidence-based strength training.

Benefits

The implementation of strength training during the preparation of top endurance athletes plays an important role in performance output, and it’s associated with improvements in middle and long-distance performance. Strength training has been shown to improve energy cost of locomotion (running economy), maximal force and power output, and thus performance, among elite endurance athletes. Moreover, the results suggest there are no detrimental effects on either VO2max or aerobic endurance.

Besides that, eccentric loads have been shown to be an effective tool to prevent injuries such as tendinopathies, as well as to rehabilitate them at a later stage. The portability and versatility of the kBox allow athletes to bring complete equipment to training camps overseas without having to worry about complex logistics.

Several top endurance athletes experience benefits from the kBox and the kPulley by using high inertia to improve their max strength, and even eccentric overload seems to improve strength and power output in a shorter period of time while not affecting global performance in the field.

The kBox and the kPulley are already in use by several prominent endurance sports athletes, notably long-distance runners Ryan and Sara Hall.
