SHOOTING BUNGIE CORD - Red
This is the best tool to increase your shot speed and strength in your shooting motion. Tie one end around a pole and the other around the end of your stick near the blade and practice shooting wrist shots, snap shots and backhand shots. Do 20-30 reps for 2-3 sets. Players that have used this on a two month training program have increased their shot speed up to 10 mph. Every player should use this training tool.
Red Cord for 11-12 years old
A fantastic training tool to increase shot speed and strength. Studies have shown
that players can increase shot speed from 5-10 mph in just 6-8 weeks. Players
should use the bungie cords to mimic the shot motion under resistance. Here is
how it works. Players can go in the weight room and lift all the weights they want
and they can get stronger but not nessesarily shoot faster. The weight lifting
patterns do not simulate the shooting motion and does not work the same muscles.
Now players can develop right in the range of motion.
Players should use the cord 2-3 times per week doing 2-3 sets of 20-30 reps per
Shot. Players will do wrist shots, snap shots and backhand shots. Players 13 yrs
and older will use the yellow cord, 11-12 years old will use the red cord and
players 10 and under use the blue cord. Whatever color a player uses for the
forehand shots they will use one strength lower for the backhand shot.
To use the cord simply wrap one end around a pole, fence or very sturdy object.
Then, slip the small ring through the big ring and tighten around the pole. Next,
push part of the bungie cord through the small left over O-Ring creating another
loop. Slide the stick blade through the loop and secure tightly just at the bottom
of the shaft of the stick blade. Now you are ready. Step away from the pole and
stretch the cord so there is no slack. Stand with your feet at a 45 degree angle
and start the push pull shooting motion.
