Revolutionary new indoor training tool for javelin throwers to make national debut at NIN '10
NSSF is very pleased to partner with BAS Trainer to introduce this
biomechanically sound, safe indoor method of training for javelin
throwers. BAS (pronounced "base") Trainer is the revolutionary training
system developed and patented by accomplished athlete, teacher and
athletic trainer, Chris Vogel of WA. Its purpose is to train javelin
throwers--and it is rapidly gaining acceptance by the track and field
community. The NSSF is very pleased to partner with BAS Trainer
to introduce this biomechanically sound, safe indoor method of training
for javelin throwers to the best high school coaches and athletes in
the country at the Nike Indoor Nationals.
Improved Performance, Improved Health
who are using the BAS Trainer device are finding themselves with a
competitive edge over the competition. They are throwing farther,
recovering quicker, and giving themselves the advantage of having more
time to practice to refine their throwing technique. The BAS Training
system utilizes what is called the "weighted shoulder throw" which
allows the athlete to train the body while resting the arm. This
results in promoting rest and healing, and substantially decreases the
risk of injury.
are enthusiastically invited to be with us for the one of the live
demonstrations of the weighted shoulder throw at the Reggie Lewis
Center on Friday, March 12 in the infield at Noon and then again
immediately following the Boys' Weight Throw (approximately 6pm).
Chris Vogel will be present at the demonstration and throughout the
weekend to answer any questions as well as to take orders for those who
are inspired to make a purchase on the spot. He will also have a
