Band Training For Speed

Attaching the band to the kettlebell means that when you swing the band there is going to be an acceleration of kettlebell in the downward phase of the movement and the individual will need to explode into the upward phase of the swing.

Other common examples of where you can implement a band within a stadard training exercise include band squats, band deadlifts and band bench press  where you must control the weight in the downward phase of the movement and worker hard in the upwards phase of the movement.  Using the bands can be great for a training phase where you are wanting to build speed and power and has been developed by the Westside Barbell Method and I have included a few additional article links below for those who are interested.
