Next Level Strength Training for Basketball Players - Linear Variable Resistance Training

Basketball players should vary their strength training program based on what time of year it is - in season, off season, or pre-season.  During the season players will want to do lighter weight with reps in the 10 to 15 range.  There are many resources for developing a year around strength training program for a basketball player.

Our resistance bands like the P.R.O. and vertical jump bands can be added to weight lifting or own their own.  If you add them to weight lifting you can use a principle called Linear Variable Reistance Training.  The bands in this type of training recruit more muscle fibers which will help increase your strength to greater levels and help you break through plateaus.  Maybe you have hit a plateau with a certain amount of weight or your vertical jump hasn't increased.  If you add the bands to your weight movements you can break through the plateaus to jump higher and get stronger.  Strength training for basketball players is a must if you want to reach your potential.
