Jumping vs. Bands

Adding bands to some of your jumps, like broad jumps and lateral bounds, are a great way to not only add an accommodating resistance but also a great way to decrease some of the pounding that the landing places on the athlete, eliminated potential lower extremity injuries and soreness.

Coaching Cues: toss the band around your waist, step out to the point where there is a little bit of tension, jump or bound.
