View Full Version : Some band pulls from today...

I am finally getting back under heavier weights again after my December 17th meet.

I didn't get video of my 820 board press from yesterday, but I got a few of my top two sets of band pulls today. The rack is set 3" below my knee. I usually miss pulls at the knee so I like to pull from just below there when I'm in the rack. I didn't use straps through 4 plates, but I added them after that. When I set up my bands I like to use the outer pins instead of looping them straight up and down in the middle pin so I have a little more starting tension ( you can see what I mean in the videos)

The first video is of my second to last set. The weight on the bar is 585 plus a doubled up monster-mini band for a triple


The next video is my top set. 675 plus the monster-mini band for a single.... it felt locked but it doesn't quite look there in the video.... you be the judge, I'm just happy to get the work in... looks like I ramped it up pretty bad too..... oh well, next time.

no judges in the gym to throw reds so everything is a white light by default. Nice work!

Looked like a little bit of the strongman slide, I use it all the time but way worse than that, lol

Very strong pulls man, very strong

Thanks guys.... it was really fun to finally get to handle some weight again after resting up from my meet.

Look for some big numbers this year at Senior Nationals and hopefully WPC worlds.
