Over the years technology has played a key role in the advancement of sports training, and Arkansas Basketball is taking full advantage with a program called Spark Motion. it's a IPad App enabling Strength Coach David Deets to train his players and immediately show them with video what they are doing right and wrong.
It's that visual learning aspect he says clicks with today's modern athlete.
"The world that we live in now it is a digital world. Kids are growing up now, and this is all they know- technology. I just think the way we incorporate it guys see themselves and they get that visual feedback. It is easier to learn the movement patterns and what they are doing wrong and help correct any imbalances we might have" says Head Basketball Strength & Conditioning Coach David Deets.
Deets says he's used the program for about 3 years now, and he's seen the effect it has on his players.
"I'm able to draw lines, able to draw squares, angles to see if their body is out of position in some different testing that we do," adds Deets.
