Secrets of Speed and Quickness Training
A collection of articles
by Dr. Larry Van Such - Vol. 4

Attention - Athletes using resistance band workouts...


There are many different companies that make exercise resistance bands and you may have seen them in a catalog or at a local gym.  Some companies even make resistance tubing which have handle attachments, etc.  But not all exercise bands provide the types of resistance you will need when performing the speed training exercises described in the programs offered by

Which bands are most effective for speed training and why?

Some exercise bands are too weak regardless of what level or resistance you use and, likewise, some bands are too strong regardless of which color you use.  After using many different types of resistance bands, the ones I've found to be the most effective are the ones produced by a company by the name of CANDO. 

The CANDO elastic bands, I believe, are the bands that most accurately resemble the elasticity in your skeletal muscles.  And as a result, this makes them the most suitable bands to use when it comes to speed training workouts.

Don't use just any resistance band just because it is available.

As you begin to utilize the CANDO exercise bands that come with our programs, sooner or later you may find yourself needing more bands either because you got stronger using the ones we supplied or, through normal wear and tear, your bands may tear. 

In any event, when you find yourself needing more resistance bands, don't just grab any band that looks good.  This would probably be counter-productive, and you may stop realizing the speed gains you have acquired.  Again, I've tested many types of bands, and some of them are not sufficiently effective for providing the elasticity your muscles need to become quicker. The elastic properties of the Cando exercise band are ideal for training your muscles for speed and quickness.

Getting replacement bands is easy and inexpensive.

This is why provides only the CANDO brand resistance band.  Replacement bands are not that expensive and well worth the price when you consider what effect you are trying to gain by using them -- speed.

So as you become more familiar with our training programs, we encourage you not to deviate from them in any form ... including the types of resistance bands you use.

Always Glad to Help,

Dr. Larry Van Such  

P.S. Remember, resistance band training, the way we teach it, using the "CANDO" exercise band is by far the most effective way to train your muscles for speed!
