The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Jump stretch platform question

    Ok, so I ordered a Jump Stretch platform. Got the heavy blue bands, green bands and purple bands. I'm assuming I want to use the purple bands. I heard I have to quadruple them? How do I put them on the platform or loop them and how much is it going to be on the bottom and top of the lift when deadlifting? Thanks.

    What is your deadlift max?


    Most mortals use quadrupled minis or monster minis. Quadrupled purple(light) bands is ridiculous tension.


    Minis quadrupled is supposed to add ~220 lbs at lockout.

    Buy the two smaller types of bands. Then worry about using the jump stretch platform with bands.

    So you bought the bands and a jumpstretch platform without really knowing how to use them? I have a couple of things I need if you're willing to buy them...

    Thanks for the advice. My deadlift is 700 at 198, conventional style. I know how to use the bands, but was wondering how much tension they add at the bottom and top using the purples? I've used the Blue strong bands for reverse band pulls with blues hanging around 5'6" off a power rack. Loved them. Figure I want to add more speed at the bottom.

    Get some 20inch bands from iron woody, they are great for deadlifting, you can double them and get tension at the bottom.

    LOL

    you can double the bands with the jumpstretch platform, tension depends on the height of the lifter and age of the bands...just pull

    Yeah, you're going to need some lighter bands.

    One day I attempted to pull with some green bands. I think my spine jumped out of my body.

    LOL, I hear ya. We have the mini bands which I'll use in the beginning to see, and maybe stay there if its enough tension. I would love a measure at the top and I'll assume the mini's are about 200lbs at top, which I dont need. Was thinking about doing them off of a 4" platform to help with the start and explosion at the start. The top would be interesting.

    quadrupled minis are more around 200 at the top. doubled minis would be much less.

    green bands hit you all at once, at the lockout!
