View Full Version : Bands for deadlifting
03-14-2010, 04:52 AM
What are some recommended bands that can be used for deadlifting (for increased resistance at the top) ie brands, which websites etc that dont cost a fortune? What are different ways of setting up the bands (I do not have those fancy platforms)? I know one can put it under ones feet.

House of pain (HOP) have bands at resonable prices... I use monster mini's or average bands for DL's.
Depends on your strength level... As far as set-up you can qaud them on the ends w/ hvy. DB's.
Also, for simplicity you can just hook them on each end of the bar and stand on them... I get some funny looks when I do those, but it works great, esp. if I'm in a hurry!

as far as setup...i tie up both bands and loop it around the collars so it stays in place. roll the band underneath the weight and set it up so your standing on the bands itself when your deadlifting.

like before, you can quad the minis which will give some nice resistance as soon as you pull, but will kick in hard right before the knee depending on your height. You can also use a light band (the purple one) and just put each end around a heavy db or in a rack. This will give less at the beginning but will kick in a bit above your knee. Both have their place. The quads are excellent for speed pulls or if you want to torture yourself with some heavy lockouts. The light bands are good if you have a severe lockout problem above your knee and want to target that specific portion of the lift. Quads add a bit more below the knee so it's harder to work with heavier weights which you'll have to factor into your training and programming.
