This course is offered in cooperation with Human Kinetics and includes the softback textbook, “Strength Band Training, 2nd Edition” by Phil Page and Todd Ellenbecker, c2011.

Strength Band Training shows you how to maximize strength, speed, and power in the gym, at home, or on the road. With more than 160 exercises and predefined fitness and sport-specific workouts, the book shows you why strength bands are the ultimate tool for targeting, isolating, and developing every major muscle group.

Portable and easy to adjust, the bands provide resistance for any level of strength, fitness, or ability. The exercises allow you to add resistance in multiple directions—something free weights and machines cannot do—for resistance routines that can simulate sport-specific demands, strengthen and tone your core, or target muscles. 212 pages.
