Speed Training Using Bands

Bands are a great tool to use improve 1st step acceleration and quickness. Since the tension increases as the band lengthens, this forces the athlete to accelerate against the resistance.  We often follow band resisted drills with body weight shuffles and sprints to take advantage of the nervous system stimulation. The athlete will be able to explode and accelerate much faster following band resisted work.

The video below is a compilation of band resisted drills we use for our tennis players.

You can vary the movements depending on the sport the athlete plays.

Try some of these moves and watch you quickness improve.

Train Hard!
