Today I have 5 Band Exercises You Probably Aren’t Doing. If you read my Logs regularly, you know there will be some Active Rest stuff in here and a few barbell exercises.

What is Active Rest?

Great question.

Active Rest is something you do in between sets to either improve mobility/flexibility or to add volume without affecting your recovery set to set and session to session.  

Let’s get right to our list of 5 Band Exercises You Probably Aren’t Doing and start with Active Rest.

I am not going to bother describing these too much, the videos do it better.

Plank with Band

Hip Pop/Glute Bridge with Band

Back Attack in GHR

Next on the list is Barbell based movements for Max Effort, or Assistance work.

Rack Pull (or Deadlift) with Bands at Hip

Sumo RDL with Bands in Front (pardon the 100% ineffective mask, this was shot during the stupid times)

There is my weekly donation to your training success.

Try adding in one or all of my 5 Band Exercises You Probably Aren’t Doing and watch your progress improve.

PS: I’ll be flying to Ohio for my Table Talk appearance on March 20th. We had to reschedule due to my hip surgery. Get your questions ready and send them to me or Dave.
