Hydraulic Resistance Training

ImageUnique to Dr. Ping's program is the use of hydraulic resistance machines.  First used in the early 1980s, hydraulic resistance or the Hydragym has proven a valuable adjunct to the program.  The machines use variable, accommodating hydraulic resistance which is set up to require the athlete on any one exercise to not only push, but also pull against resistance to return to the start position.  This type of continual resistance adds to the muscular endurance required for football.  Dr. Ping has designed a circuit that is completed 3 times, 25 repetitions per station. This circuit program has produced improved cardiovascular endurance and recovery time.  The Hydragym is used Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
