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.
