Powerade's "Barefoot Training" for PBA games. Malu-Feet!!!

Well, the Powerade Tigers are winless no more. And if they do the impossible, they can notch win number 2 if they beat unbeatable Talk 'N Text tonight in Digos, Davao. If you notice a different pep in the step of the Tigers, it might be because of radical training methods they use to prepare for games. Team trainer Julio Veloso oversees the Tigers' "Barefoot Training" and swears by its effectiveness.

Coach Julio believes using Vibrams - yup, the training shoes which look like socks with toes - strengthens the intrinsic and extrinsic foot muscles thereby stabilizing ankles and arches better. the logic being: stronger arches and ankles help lessen knee problems in the long run. Wearing the "five-finger" shoe during training also helps players achieve better form in drills such as laterals, sprints, plyometrics and agility tests. Coach Julio says muscles, instead of joints, are activated by barefoot training.

See, this is proof that we're just a few steps away from seeing the first ever Vibram Basketball Shoe! I even have a prototype ready for my first endorser - Mac Cardona! Watch out for Cardona's Player Exclusive - the Malu-Feet 1 or MF1 MH
