Short answer: Traditional fitness methods are to train in the weight room, run for conditioning, and then train to develop specific skills. The lightweight design (less than 3 lbs.) allows a soldier to perform skill-specific training without the limits of traditional weight room based equipment and methods which accelerates fitness, conditioning, and motor learning so less time is required to reach training goals
Scientific answer: A traditional periodized training program will consist of many highly structured and carefully planned cycles from mobility, cardiovascular conditioning, to strength. Strength (resistance) training enhances motor neuron excitability and induces synaptogenesis, both of which would help enhancing communication between the nervous system and the muscles themselves. However, unlike resistance training, skill acquisition does NOT currently utilize periodization to plan, monitor and evaluate programs and progression.
The development of skill acquisition periodization framework that translates to the necessary movement protocols during training allows for the systematic investigation into the acute and longitudinal effectiveness of such interventions, thus enhancing performance. High-frequency intermittent feedback of repetitive skills training and frequency, however, results in improved performance and movement efficiency.
The NeuroPak increases the activation of the neuromuscular responses associated with any skills-based activity via the application of continuous, strategically calibrated resistance to the user’s limbs. The placement of the NeuroPak and resistance bands subtly causes the user to engage their midline stability musculature for immediately improved posture for optimized mechanics across movement disciplines.
Simply wear the device and move better. This approach improves muscle memory without constraining the activity itself or preventing the execution of smooth, natural movement.
