Resistance band jumps

The resistance band jump exercise is a great late stage proprioception test! Hops and jumps can be used in the early stages but using the band adds an extra challenge!


Teaching Points:

  • A resistance band is wrapped around the waist and anchored or held behind the athlete.
  • They then perform side to side or forwards and backward jumps.
  • The resistance from the band provides a challenge to the balance.
