Vince Young’s Resistance Band Explosion Series

This series consists of a circuit of resisted pass drops, resisted starts, ankle band shuffle and hamstring stretch:
  • perform 3-, 5- and 7-step drops against resistance
  • sprint for 5-7 yards on resisted starts
  • keep feet wide and hips low for ankle band shuffle
  • hold hamstring stretch at point of tension, then push against partner’s reistance for hamstring stretch
The circuit:
Resisted pass drops—1 x 10
Resisted starts—1 x 10
Ankle band shuffle—3 x 10-15 yards each direction
Hamstring stretch—1 x 30 seconds and 10 pushes each leg
Repeat the circuit three more times for a total of four circuits


I’ve been doing this super intense cardio routine for the past few months with outstanding results. When you are pressed for time and you cannot devote 30 or more minutes to cardio training this is a simple, but excellent method of increasing and maintaining your cardio fitness. It consists of the following exercises:

Squat thrust -- 10 reps
Mountain Climber -- 10 reps (counting 1-2-3-ONE-1-2-3-TWO)
Squat Jump -- 10 reps

Repeat these exercises until you have done 100 reps total. You will end up doing 40 squat thrusts, 30 mountain climbers, and 30 squat jumps total.
