August 26, 2014 - Dribbling Arches

As we're so fond of pointing out, sometimes the most effective ideas are also the simplest. Now, GloballSports.net reinforces this point by developing a basketball aid that has the potential to be the best dribbling skills tool since the dribbling goggles. Dribble Mac is a device that will help players master the cross-over dribble and many other dribbling and passing skills.

 

Most basketball coaches use cones to teach different dribbling drills such as the cross-over. They'll tell players to get low, speed dribble and do not cross-over before they get to the cone. The Dribble Mac more simulates real game situations as players must dribble under something, causing them to approach, get low, and speed dribble all in one rep. This creates a more intense, focused dribbling exercise which can be used in most camps and as a tool at home to improve skills.

 

The Dribble Mac is reasonably priced and there is nothing else we've seen out there quite like it. For solo or team training, don't be surprised if these arches start popping up on basketball courts everywhere. They may not be golden in color, but they have big (Mac) potential.

August 14, 2014 - Positive Balance

By Dovber Chaiton

What is superb about the Energy Balance Shop company bracelets is that the Energy Shop is so openly honest about their product which is truly refreshing. They do no make any claims about heightened energy or better balance, it has been reported after wearing these bracelets but this company makes no such claim. There must be something to it though, as the English Premier League saw it necessary to ban these bracelets.

Many people have claimed a better feel while doing sports activities while wearing this bracelet. The bracelet releases negative ions into the body. These negative ions are almost like heightened purity. Like hiking an unpolluted mountain trail and feeling a difference in the quality of air. If one is to believe in them for the placebo effect alone, then we can all be in agreement that there is benefit to that too. 

The Energy Balance Bracelets are unique in that they do not look drab, they are made of 100% medical grade silicone and set with two negative ion holograms which are known to increase mental health, power and stamina as well as strengthen the body's immune system. Some might even find them rather funky. They are highly fashionable, if you do not believe in the positive effect, one thing is for certain, they will certainly do you no harm.

They come in an array of really great colors. These colors can match your teams colors or just be representative of you. Either way, this product would make a fine medium scale gift for any sport or fashion lover.

August 6, 2014 - Smaller is Better

If you are a baseball player and have limited space, limited budget, but unlimited desire, there is a product made with you in mind that could change your life.

 

You've always wanted your own batting cage and pitching machine, right? But where can you put one of those huge things? And how can you afford it anyway? That's what an undersized 14 year-old player named Chris Richard was going through in 1988. He begged his dad to buy him a pitching machine. Unable to do that, his father did the next-best thing. He invented one, and the Personal Pitcher was born.

 

It is small, lightweight, compact and portable. It shoots out golf ball wiffles at variable speeds you control that will simulate pitching from Little League to the pros. The tiny wiffle balls offer many great advantages. They're inexpensive and can be readily purchased at any sporting goods store. They won't injure anyone or cause property damage. Because of their design, you are able to clearly see the path of the hit ball and know if you made good contact. They'll work in the backyard, garage, basement...anywhere you have about 30 feet. And, best of all, because they are so small, after hitting a few buckets of these, the real baseball will look like a grapefruit.

 

I know from experience the value of the product. My own sons hit these same wiffles in the garage all through high school. Now they are playing college baseball and one was recently drafted into the pros. I really believe those thousands of cuts they otherwise would never have had made a huge difference. Chris Richard took his dad's invention and made it all the way to the Major Leagues. Now he's the driving force behind the product's re-invention and improvement.

 

High-level business executives all have personal assistants. Top-notch pro athletes have personal trainers. If all you want to do is hit so that you can get as far as your potential will take you, you'll be glad you brought home your very own Personal Pitcher.

July 30, 2014 - No Sinking Feeling

It was the first nice pair of sunglasses I'd ever bought, and in Europe, no less. They were stylish and comfortable. I loved them and wore them everywhere. My buddy, who owned a couple of jet skis invited us out to the bay. I got on for my first ride, not of the day, of my life. It never occurred to me to take off the glasses. As I throttled up and rode around I began to get more confidence. I tested the limits, going faster and faster. I remember my friend telling me how fast he'd gone and I thought I could see if I could approach that. Next thing I know I'm hitting the water face-first, gulping down half of the bay. I scrambled to try to get back on the jet ski, finally sitting astride it, panting. I was lucky I hadn't broken my neck. It wasn't until halfway back to the shore, creeping slowly along, that I realized I was missing something: My new, Italian sunglasses were, at that moment, sinking to the bottom never to be seen again.

 

So though I'm not much of a boater, I can see the value in a pair of Floatz by Bangerz Sunz. As the name implies, they completely float. So if you do something stupid like I did, or if just during the normal course of boating, fishing, windsurfing, or any other activity on the water, they happen to fall off, you can simply paddle over and retrieve them.

 

Not only do the ones they sent us to try look great, they feel like they were made to fit your face. But maybe even more importantly, they provide top-of-the line protection. Polarized lenses eliminate sun glare and block 100% of harmful UVA & UVB sun rays. Hydrophobic coating resists moisture while dirt, water & oil slips off the lenses. Bangerz anti-microbial rubber touch points and padding inhibits or kills mold, mildew, germs and bacteria.

 

Bangerz sports glasses were one of our top products for 2013, and they're in the running for '14 with the Floatz line. You're sure to love them too. And when you love something this much, the last thing you want is for them to end up sleeping with the fishes.

July 23, 2014 - Another Kick in the Wall

Training mannequins are used by the world's best teams to train. They give players better awareness and understanding and provide a more match-like simulation. And for the top-of-the line mannequins, the ones that will last, hold up to weather and blasted shots, and be easiest to use, look no farther than Soccer Innovations.

The Soccer Wall is not just a free kick and training mannequin. It converts to several other important soccer training products including a small goal, a large goal, a soccer pole set, a hurdle set, a passing gate and a soccer tennis set. Oh, and guess what else? It all fits into the trunk of your car. It's lightweight, portable and goes up and down in less than a minute.

Use the Soccer Wall to practice dribbling, free kicks, passing, almost anything you can think of. How often do you see young soccer coaches giving private lessons, just one-on-one, them, the player and a few balls on an open field somewhere? For the cost of just a few of those sessions, a coach can now add a completely new dimension to his training by including a few “opponents” for his players to work with, and or a net to shoot on. You sure can't get that with a few orange cones. The extra business they'll get as word spreads of their superior lessons will pay for the investment many times over.

So whether you're a coach or even just a parent who wants to enrich your child's backyard training, make the investment in the Soccer Wall and you'll reap the benefits. It's definitely something your players will get a (free) kick out of.
