| Banded Romanian Deadlift |
The band allows the RDL to be loaded at the top and bottom of the rep. @zahler_bodybuilding_systems showed us this variation a good while ago now and it’s still a favorite.🙌🏼.
| Banded Back Squat |
Explosive on the concentric portion of the movement and slow and controlled on the eccentric/lowering portion. The band allows the movement to be heavier at the top portion of the Rep, when the band is stretched the most. As you lower, the tension will be less. The elasticity of the band forces much more stabilization and control to get through each Rep. the benefits of using bands in your training are endless
| Abduction Machine |
The positioning of this variation allows this movement to favor the glutes/Glute med over the abductors. Butt is situated forward on the seat, pelvis is tilted up and glutes are contracted before starting the reps. Keep the chin tucked and control the ROM. ROM will be slightly less than a standard abduction. Shoutout to @jimmyquads for the knowledge on this one. Still my favorite way to use this machine.
