Taft Speed Guy Package 1
Package #1 – Beginner Speed Package- (Mini-band package, #.75 yellow 110”band, #2 red 110” band, workout handles and clips, FT Band #1 sky-blue 70”)
The Taft Speed Guy Package 1 is designed to help athletes ages 9-12 develop greater functional strength for multi-directional speed. Athletes will use this package to strengthen and stabilize the hips in all planes of movements using the mini bands. The exercises will help the athletes be able to produce more force when pushing and reduce force when decelerating. The longer #.75 yellow 110” and #2 red 110# bands will allow for greater acceleration over 4-7 steps. This is critical when trying to improve acceleration for all sports.
The #2 Functional Training Band will allow athletes to strengthen the hips both in standing and ground based exercises. Athletes can produce full range of motion simulating the gait pattern needed to run. The workout bands are going to allow the athlete to integrate the core and hip with the legs and feet to establish a great functional stability and power when moving laterally, decelerating linearly, and to control mass and momentum forces.
