The kBox targets many important aspects of developing elite swimmers’ strength and is already used by Olympic level swimmers on several continents.
Developing athletes use the kBox in a more general way to get stronger in both compound movements and isolation drills. From high-end swimmers, we see examples of sport-specific strength development.
Post-activation potentiation before a race can give swimmers a huge benefit with a 35% faster start as shown in a flywheel training study.
The versatility, efficacy and mobility of the kBox are three key reasons why swimmers choose to incorporate kBox and flywheel training into their programming.
Swimming is heavy on the volume side, spending a lot of time in the water. By being able to practically build a gym by the pool using the kBox new possibilities opens up in the programming. On a high level there are also travelling a significant amount of time and being able to bring the gym with you is beneficial.
Also, the kBox can be an ideal and powerful tool for post-activation potentiation, just before a world championship race.
The kBox is already implemented by coaches of Olympic level swimmers as well as in developing younger athletes, in the US, Europe and Australia. For examples, please refer to the social media feed on this page.
