Resistance Band Strength Training Home Program

Resistance bands are a great and fun way to help your athletes develop all-around fitness. I use them for field games during training. Each player that participates in Fit2Finish training gets a band to take home.

Kids of all ages – including coaches – love them. But one of the best things about them is…they’re portable. Athletes can use them at home, on the road, just about anywhere they go and have a few minutes.

Before TiVo I used to tell kids to use them during the commercials. Now? Maybe the 15 minute break they take between screens?

Try 2 sets of 10-15 reps of each exercise. Go slowly. Count 1-2-3 out, 1-2-3 back. Keep the band taut through the whole range of motion. (No slack bands.)

Here’s the take home program I recommend:

Where do you get these bands? I order in rolls of 25 or 50 yards and cut into 3 or 4 foot lengths. Here are some options:

Stronger athletes are a better fit for the game.
