This wiki has been updated 26 times since it was first published in January of 2016. If you really want to amp up your training regimen, you need to add some resistance. A speed harness is a great way to power up your drills, whether you're trying to build strength or stamina, or increase your vertical leap. Our selections let you work out alone, by dragging weights or a parachute, or with a partner, while some create resistance through the use of a large bungee cord. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

August 30, 2019:

Serious coaches and trainers around the world rely on speed harnesses to give their athletes that extra edge that can make all the difference in competition. Harnesses add resistance to your running or agility routine to help you build strength and endurance. Then, when your body is used to training with resistance, you will experience greater speed and power when it is removed.

The SKLZ Recoil Resistance system, attaching at the waist, would be ideal for drills that focus on building the hamstrings and glutes--generally considered a runner's weak points. We also like the Vikingstrength 360 for its money-back guarantee and its versatility. The adjustable strap fits just about anyone and it has different attachment points for the bungee so that you can create resistance from various angles.

Speed harnesses are super affordable and, unlike some exercise equipment, they take up hardly any space. The are easy to store when not in use and you can throw them in the trunk of your car as you head to the track.
