Mon 6-23-14: Band Resistance

Today I experimented with some banded resistance on some basic barbell lifts. Although I’ve done these separately I’ve never done a workout with all of them.

Horizontal Band Resistance on Vertical Barbell Lifts

The basic idea is to add a minor horizontal pull to challenge technique and stability in traditional barbell moves. I hope to add videos of these soon to help give a better picture of the exercises and concept.

Deadlift (band pulling bar forward)
10 reps: 65,65,95,115,135,155

Floor Press (band pulling bar above head)
10 reps: 65,65,95
Incline Floor Press (band pulling bar toward feet)

Bent Row (band pulling bar forward)
10 reps: 4 sets at 95, different grips

Overhead Press (band pulling bar forward)
10 reps: 65,65,65

Front Squat (band pulling bar forward)
10 reps: 95,115,135

Pullups (experimented with pull from each direction- forward/back/left/right)
4 sets of 5 reps

Then went to the park and climbed, jumped and played around.
