LIS­TEN & LEARN

Cheshire Life - - The Manual -

When train­ing for a huge un­der­tak­ing like a marathon or triathlon, it’s not just your body that grad­u­ally gets bet­ter; your brain learns and adapts too. The Halo Sport is the first of its kind; a pair of headphones that ac­cel­er­ate the rate at which your brain and body learn new in­for­ma­tion, a process called Neu­ro­prim­ing.

Via spikes on the in­side of the headphones the brain is tar­geted by pain-free elec­tri­cal cur­rents that in­crease the ex­citabil­ity of mo­tor neu­rons, plac­ing your nog­gin in a tem­po­rary state of ‘hy­per­plas­tic­ity’, or hy­per­learn­ing. Re­search shows that train­ing in this state fa­cil­i­tates more rapid im­prove­ments in strength, skill and en­durance. Ath­letes who trained with Halo Sport in­creased their physical force by 13% more than those who hadn’t.

The great sound qual­ity is a ma­jor bonus too. £379, avail­able on­line and at se­lect stockists; haloneuro.com
