In the lead up to the world’s most gruelling trail race, Veronika has been conditioning in the gym with the textured Naboso Training Mat.
Strength work is absolutely vital in building the muscles Veronika needs to achieve the mountain climb and stay steady over uneven and sometimes slippery terrain.
The surfaces athletes train on ultimately influences how their foot activates and communicates with the rest of their nervous system. This is especially important for athletes like Veronika who are focusing on movements that require rapid stabilisation.
No training surface to date has been designed to specifically target the small nerve proprioceptors on the bottom of the feet. Stimulating an athlete’s nervous system to make their muscles work better can be their next winning edge.
