Dave “The Band Man” Schmitz gave us access to a 30+ minute instructional video on Resistance Band Training including mistakes, when you should start implementing bands with kids, progressions and so much more in our Exclusive IYCA Insiders members site.
It was so good that we had to take a snippet of information and share it with you for free!
Common Resistance Band Misconceptions
- Bigger is Better
- Quantity over Quality
- Bands Don’t Need Progressions
- All Bands are Created Equal
- Band Training Doesn’t Need Guidelines
Size matters when it comes to bands and bigger isn’t always better, especially when it comes to working with youth.
Quality trumps quantity in almost all aspects of training kids, but especially when it comes to resistance band training.
Pro Tip: Band training is about high quality recruitment, and great recruitment leads to great movement.
If you think you can just throw an athlete in a band and expect good recruitment, you are wrong. Proper progressions and guidance are needed to provide the best results for your kids.
