MMA/Boxing - Sparring with Strobe Training Glasses
Training with Strobe Glasses makes the brain work faster and more efficiently. When the brain works faster it can move the body sooner. You can throw a punch sooner. You can dodge a punch sooner. We can learn to train the brain to work faster and process info faster it can more quicker (reaction time). Focus is improved by learning to process relevant info and disregard irrelevant info. The less info to process the faster the brain can tell the body to move (better reaction time). You can challenge yourself by putting the glasses in single eye mode with your dominant eye occluded. This MAKES your weaker eye have to step up and get the brain better info. When we challenge the brain it will respond in a positive way.
MMA/Boxing - Single Leg Balance Drill with Strobe Training Glasses
Balance and body awareness are key skills of all elite athletes. By taking away visual info/stimuli from the brain the brain must get its info from another source. The brain has to rely more on the proprioceptive system (muscles and nerves) and the vestibular system (inner ear) to tell the body how to move. The brain likes to rely on the eyes to give it info on how to move. We can train and maintain a high level of body control, balance, and awareness. The more awareness an athlete has the easier it is to make adjustments. When you cannot feel your body you will continue to make mistakes.
MMA/Boxing - Feedback After Hitting Heavy Bag with Strobe Training Glasses
Love this video! After hitting the heavy bag with the Strobe Training Glasses this athlete takes them off and gives his impression of what it's like to train with the Strobe Glasses. "Dialed in", "Slow motion", "Matrix style" are some of the ways he describes what it's like. Training with the glasses MAKES the brain have to speed up how it processes info. It MAKES the brain have to focus on relevant info and ignore irrelevant info. The fighter becomes faster and more efficient. Less energy is wasted on irrelevant stimuli.
MMA/Boxing - Nerf Gun Dart Dodging and Slipping with Strobe Training Glasses
Great reaction time drill! MMA athletes must learn to be very quick and efficient in their movements to avoid punches and kicks. With the Nerf Gun Darts I shoot towards the head to make them move left, right or down to avoid the dart. With the added resistance to the brain the brain becomes trained to work faster so the body can move faster/sooner. Focus is heightened as the brain must be very efficient and process only the relevant info needed to move successfully. When the brain doesn't have to process as much info it can do everything faster. When you learn to see things sooner you can be more proactive and less reactive than your opponent.
MMA/Boxing - Double End Bag with Strobe Training Glasses
MMA athlete training with the Double Bag with the Strobe Training Glasses. Early in the video you can tell that he is having some difficulty but in time his brain is processing info faster so he is having more success. After training with the glasses the bag seems slower but that is only because the brain is working faster. Focus is improved as the brain has been trained to capture the most relevant info and ignoring irrelevant info. When the brain receives clear, concise info it works more efficiently and puts the body in a position for success more consistently.
MMA/Boxing - Sparring with Pads with Strobe Training Glasses
UFC Middleweight contender Jared Cannonier working with his coach hitting pads training for an upcoming fight. I would have Jared train at a low level and then increase the amount or occlusion up to about 280ms. We also trained in different single eye modes. We would work on his weaker eye the flip the mode to the dominant eye. All of this confusion MAKES the brain have to work much harder. Like lifting weights, the glasses puts resistance on the brain. The brain is trained to still be successful with added resistance. After the glasses come off the fighter experiences everything 'slowing down'. The pads look big and slow to hit. He's moving much faster and his energy is not wasted. His brain and body are more efficient. When we can give the brain better focus (food) it can move the body more efficiently. We the brain has to process a lot of unnecessary info it becomes slower and less efficient. Make your brain be 'quiet' and your body to be 'quiet'. That is how the pros function.
MMA/Boxing - Hitting Pads After Training with Strobe Glasses
Check out how much quicker this fighter is able to move after wearing the Strobe Glasses. Once we train the brain to work faster and process info faster it can move quicker (reaction time). Focus is improved by learning to process relevant info and disregard irrelevant info. The less info to process the faster the brain can tell the body to move (better reaction time). Better focus means the brain and body are working more efficiently. Less energy is wasted on irrelevant stimuli. More power and speed.
MMA/Boxing - Heavy Bag with Strobe Training Glasses
10 yr old champion boxer working on the heavy bag with Strobe Training Glasses. This kid loved the glasses and the challenge of having to work with less visual info. As fast as he is in this video he was even faster after training with the glasses. Strobe Glasses MAKES the brain have to work faster which improves reaction time. The brain must be more efficient with the info it processes so it captures the most relevant info needed to perform an athletic movement.
