Band Broad Jump

Horizontal power and strength is something that I feel we don’t train enough in the weight room. One excellent movement to train horizontal power is the Broad Jump, but something that I don’t use much as the landing forces on the knees scares me a little ➡️ the forces are very similar to the landing mechanism that can result in an ACL injury.

Instead, because we want the benefits of broad jumping, we will perform a Band Resisted Broad Jump. The Band Resisted version help to eliminate some of the stress on the knees when landing, along with creating an external resistance.
