Resistance Sprint Without Harness Speed Training Drill

Resistance Sprint Without Harness Speed Training Drill


This is a great basketball speed and quickness drill to use if you do not have access to a harness or resistance band. Anytime you can trick your body to work harder and develop your muscles quicker than it normally would, it is good. Having the coach push against you and then let go trains your body to work harder. Then when you don’t have a coach pushing against you, your start will be even quicker.
