For many of the exercises EEA prescribes to athletes, we implement the reactive method. The reactive method commonly involves using accommodating resistance and through chains and bands. With only barbell weight, one is able to decelerate the bar on the top of the range of motion for an exercise. However with chains or bands, the added resistance on the top of the range of motion forces the athlete to accelerate through the entire rep. An added advantage to band-use is that the eccentric portion of each rep is done with a speed greater than could be used without it and results in more kinetic energy being stored in the muscles, tendons, and connective tissue. This method is very efficient in training for speed-strength because, depending on our specific goal at the time, we can change the percentage of resistance coming from both the bar and the band/chain.
