ADD BANDS FOR MORE GAINZ!

ADD BANDS FOR MORE GAINZ!

Burn out the legs with this simple addition of a band!

_

The Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat is a personal favorite to train legs.

_

This movement tends to be more forgiving on the low back, while I feel it more in my legs, hips & core.

Last week I watched the documentary on West Side Barbell.  WOW.  What a great docu.  Those men & women are so powerful!

_

After watching I decided to add some band work into my training.  This past week I used a band while preforming my RFESS!  Yes, I added a band to this already challenging movement.

_

This is defiantly not for beginners, but adds so much more to the movement when you are able to perform it.  I felt more work happening in my legs, hips & torso.  It was a very powerful feeling.  I also noticed the band pulling me to challenge my balance or “stability”.

Just when you think you have mastered the movement, you can switch up one small detail & crush your legs again.  You don’t always have to increase the weight to make big gains in muscle mass & fat loss.

In the video I am doing 30s R/L with Double 24kg(so ~105.6lbs) w/ a black 1/4 inch band.  I am not too sure how much that increases the weight?

_

Seriously, look at the activation happening in my shoulders and arms as I perform the RFESS!

_

Always make sure to breathe while you perform the movement. Breathe into the belly on the way down & forcefully exhale on the way up.

Are you looking for better ways to train fundamental movement patterns?
