Resistance band training complements regular strength training, is cost effective, allows coaches to train speed year round, and enables group training indoors and outside
Elizabethtown, KY (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
Dave Schmitz of Resistance Band Training Systems, LLC will be appearing at Germantown High School in Germantown, WI in 2 weeks on May 5th, 2012 for the Resistance Band Training Coaches’ Only Clinic.
The clinic will provide hands on instruction geared toward high school level coaches. Dave Schmitz is hoping to use the clinic to show participants how to train with bands. Specifically, the clinic hopes to address speed training with bands.
“Resistance band training is useful to high school coaches for so many reasons,” Schmitz explained. “It complements regular strength training, is cost effective, allows coaches to train speed year round, and enables group training indoors and outside.”
Schmitz has been training high school athletes with resistance bands since 1997. Along the way, his band training has helped high school programs achieve playoff success and state championships.
Schmitz believes resistance bands are a useful training tool because they “promote performance and reduce injuries.” Specifically, Dave notes that band training helps with “deceleration, multi-directional first step speed, and developing multi plane hip, ankle, and shoulder flexibility.”
Dave Schmitz specializes in resistance band training and frequently hosts training seminars and other live events to get trainers better at using bands. He was recently named one of the 100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness.
The goal of the Coaches’ Clinic is to improve coaches’ ability to train high school athletes with resistance bands. To do so, Schmitz will cover topics like dynamic flexibility, linear and lateral first step speed, and strength training with resistance bands.
In addition to the expert coaching and resistance band knowledge Dave Schmitz will provide, participants of the clinic will receive training videos, months of online consulting with Schmitz himself, a discount on band products and workouts, and free lunch.
“I cannot promise coaches that by training with me they will ensure themselves of a state championship,” Schmitz admitted. “But you will be closer to your goals by being able to train your athletes to be better, faster, stronger, and healthier.”
The 2012 Resistance Band Training Coaches’ Only Clinic will take place two weeks from now on May 5th at Germantown High School in Germantown, Wisconsin. The session begins at 7:30 AM and will conclude at 3:30 PM.
New to this year’s deal is that Schmitz is allowing coaches to bring up to two of their athletes with them to the clinic. In this way, coaches can learn resistance band training strategies by working with their actual athletes.
