While I love to write my own pieces on my blog, I consider it a great service to be able to sift through all the misinformation available on the web and give you links to great training articles. This is another of those.

Subject: Why NOT to do Resistance Band (Shadow) Boxing
Sports Specific Training is probably one of the most misunderstood concepts among personal trainers and fitness enthusiasts alike.
One of the most popular examples of this misunderstanding is when fighters (and people who just want to train like one) are advised to do shadow boxing rounds, and perform their specific boxing techniques and combinations while working against resistance bands that are strapped around their back or anchored at a belt around their waist.
In todays video I not only discuss the problem with using resistance band shadow boxing, I also provide you a little test you can try as a demonstration for why this common “sports specific training practice” is NOT recommend in the Performance U training approach.
