Training with resistance bands is often considered a complement to strength training. In reality, it is one of the best alternative methods for training explosive strength.

Dave Schmitz, a leading resistance band training expert, has just released a new course designed to teach instructors how to properly teach resistance band workouts to kids. The new course, available through the IYCA, aims to increase the number of qualified resistance band trainers for young athletes.

Training with resistance bands is often considered a complement to strength training. In reality, it is one of the best alternative methods for training explosive strength.

Resistance band workouts make use of the forces of momentum, gravity, and ground resistance, which is not the case in standard weightlifting. As a result of the different movements available with bands, children can train motions they use in common sports situations, like throwing.

The number one goal of the IYCA is to promote athlete development (good place for link to my athlete development blog post). As such, they create products that improve the skill sets of those who train young athletes. Schmitz notes, “Resistance band trainers, like other strength trainers, need to be qualified for bands to work with kids.”

In this resistance band training instructor course, Dave Schmitz takes trainers from the basics of resistance bands through advanced workouts. It comes with 4 DVDs and a manual which includes beginner, intermediate, and advanced resistance band training programs.

“We are very happy to be working with Dave Schmitz,” said Pat Rigsby, co-founder of the IYCA. “He brings a level of expertise and commitment to training with resistance bands that is unmatched.”

Schmitz is a noted expert in the field of resistance band training. Since starting as a physical therapist, Schmitz has taken bands from an injury rehab tool to a means of boosting athletic performance. He was recently named one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in Health & Fitness.

The Resistance Band Instructor Course is available now. Normally valued at $147, those who order by the end of February 3rd will receive a $50 discount (price: $97).
