Many people have the misconception that speed is something a person either has or does not have. Yes, some people just seem naturally faster, but quick first steps, lateral quickness, and lateral speed and strength can be trained.
Even if you are the basketball player on the team with the most speed to run up and down the court, moving side to side may not be your expertise. If you want to improve your ability to defend then you have to have muscles that react and contract with each movement as fast as possible. Myosource Kinetic Bands are an easy tool to add to your lateral speed and quickness drills that will cause your muscles to contract and react in each movement. Myosource Kinetic Bands will help you work on your ability to accelerate and decelerate in all directions and change directions quicker.

Increasing lateral quickness takes work ethic and the desire to continuously improve. Quick feet, stability, balance, agility and body control are key components to lateral quickness. Learn and develop these skills and you can increase your lateral quickness to make a difference in basketball games.
It is time to stop being unhappy with your lateral speed and use your own body weight with Myosource Kinetic Bands during your normal basketball drills and workouts to improve your lateral quickness. Put the bands on and perform simple exercises like lateral lunges, speed slides, and lateral crossovers and feel the difference immediately.
