Training Schedule: The Progress Chart and Weekly Training Schedule located in Section 5 will guide you through all of the exercises and allow you to chart your progress along the way.

Training Tips:

1) To reduce the resistance for a given exercise, create a longer loop with your band, use bands with less resistance and/or position yourself closer to where the band is attached.  Positioning yourself closer means the band will not be stretched as much thereby reducing the resistance.

2) The final position for each exercise should be held for 10-15 seconds.  The amount of effort you should be exerting during this time should be between 70-80% of your maximum strength.

3) Perform approximately five minutes of light stretching before starting these exercises.
