Default slideboard material help

Anyone know where I can get the material you place on slideboards? None of the major stores around here have any. I used to be able to buy it from Rickels that sold it in rolls and I'd cut off what I needed. Unfortunately they went out of business and Home Depot, etc., don't carry it.

I can't find anything online either.

Personally, I think you can better utilize your time than using a slide board. Do Cross-overs on the grass, they are more effective IMHO.

i'm glad to hear Alex say that.

I have two slideboards, and the most excercise i got from them was loading the big sheets of 3/4 inch melamine ito and out of the car.

If you want a cheap one, watch for someone tearing out formica laminate countertops and snag one that is atleast 6 feet or longer. Formica works better than melamine, ang glossy formica works better than satin or matt finishes,

Wax the hell out of it and use wool booties.

Watch that you don't wrench your knees = injury.

But i tend to believe Alex, plyomnetrics (land drills) are probably more beneficial.

Godzilla,
Do you have recommendations for how long to do this exercize/number of reps?

Also what is the primary benefit of doing this drill?

Thanks for the advice, it is appreciated.

Yes, i made this program years ago so the videos are small but it is still very good. I took the most useful exercises i could find from Training in Holland, Korea, Canada and Australia and combined them with videos i saw from Russia and Norway and Bill Begg, and walah! Yes, that is me in the videos.

The benefit depends on how you do the exercises. Primarily the explosive exercises with long rests are to build explosive power in sessions 1 and 2. The exercises with longer reps are to increase your lactic tolerance in sessions 2 and 3.
