When athletes work out with Halo Sport, the device stimulates the motor cortex, the brain's mission control center for movement. By stimulating this area, Halo Sport helps the brain learn to coordinate muscle contractions more effectively, which translates to greater skill and strength.
Athletes can Neuroprime with Halo Sport before their intense skill or strength workouts to put their brain into a hyperplastic, or "hyperlearning" state. This allows the motor cortex to coordinate with the muscles more effectively and help the muscles get the most out of training. Check out these videos and the information on the Science page of our website to learn more about how Halo Sport helps athletes increase skill, strength, and explosiveness.
Using Halo Sport to Neuroprime is easy. Using the Halo Sport app, you can select the appropriate Neuropriming session for the area of the brain you want to target (Legs, Core & Arms, Left Hands & Fingers, or Right Hands & Fingers). You'll wet your Primers, insert them into the headset, put on the headset and begin your 20-minute Neuropriming session. While your brain is “warming up” during the Neuropriming period, you can perform your usual physical warm-up for your skill or just relax. When the 20 minutes are up, you can take off the headset (or keep it on to listen to music) and start reaping the benefits of a training session powered by Halo. Benefits continue for one hour after your Neuropriming session is complete.
