    we got speed bench once a week. .we do 8 sets of 3 with 60 seconds rest using between 60-70 percent of our max. . . doesnt impress the ladies too much with 200lbs on but its a great explosion exercise

    Is this a recent trend among all universities, I know when I went to a football camp they were telling us to do box squats with the bands or chains.

    we do speed squat but always on a box and most of the times with chains. This is a recent trend and a good one at that. not goin anywhere any time soon. The chains and bands really add tension at the tops and bottom of the lift that you dont get with regular squat

    hmmm, we dont have chains so our speed bench is go down, touch your asss to your calfs and spring up and literally jump off the ground. so like a speed/jump squat. but i would love to try chains

    THe strenght coach said it really helps with core strength too using bands cause they jerk you around, many people neglect training their core and they are lesser players because of it
