This study was planned to investigate the effect of resistance training applied using functional exercise band (TRX) and body weight applied to male basketball players aged 15-17 on selected physical characteristics. 30 elite basketball players in the youth category of Turkey were included in the study. Athletes; 13 athletes with a mean age of 16.00±0.707 years in the control group (CG) and 17 athletes with a mean age of 16.05±0.747 years in the experimental group (EG) were randomly divided into two groups. The experimental group was given TRX suspension training for 8 weeks with routine basketball training (3 days/week), a total training time of 45 minutes. The control group only did routine basketball training. Pre-tests of 2 groups of 30 athletes (leg extension leg curl, push-ups, sit-ups, (20 m) sprint, vertical jump and agility were taken at the end of 8 weeks before the exercises. Fully repeated measures ANOVA were used to make separate comparisons for the pre and post-measurements in the 8-week training sessions for the experimental and control training groups.

Pre- and post-measurements of the groups were compared.; According to the analysis of the data, a significant difference was observed in the values of leg extension, leg curl, push-ups, sit-ups and vertical jump tests (p < 0.05). In the comparison between the groups (20m), significant difference was observed between sprint and agilityt test values (p > 0.05).

However, TRX suspension training has shown that it can better improve leg curl, push-ups, sit-ups, and vertical jump performances in basketball players’ objects.
