    5/29/09 ME with quad mini bands

    Alright, this was Travis inspired (thanks Trav). I can't believe I went back to back ME weeks using bands. Rob is going to hate me, but Paul will love me. Seriously, this is one of the best exercises I have ever tried. Lockout is my weakness. This will help cure that.

    I took a lot of warmups because this exercise is crazy. You can't believe the tension when you just take the bar out. I look forward to hitting this again in about 6 weeks. I'll already know what it feels like and will be able to take less warm ups and hit something bigger.

    On a side note, Rhodes made his triumphant return. I shared the floor with both him and DD. It was quite a man pileup.

    haha that's great work Vincent!

    You killed my PR by 25lbs and you made it look a ton easier! You are certainly going to hit your goals at this meet.

    I'm glad you liked the exercise. I think we figured the band tension to come out to around 300 at the top. certainly at least 250.

    Vincent what am I going to do with you? LOL! Nice work. I am not totally against bands. I do cycle them in on my raw lock out work. Right now I am doing 4 weeks of straight weight lock outs, 4 weeks band lock outs, and 4 weeks floor presses. Now seeeing that exercise I may change things to a 3 week cycle and and floor press bands to a cycle. I will have to play with that cause I like doing reps to kill my tri's

    that was awesome vin! I dont know how you plan on getting stronger when you have bands on the bar...rob says it cant happen! lol

    I like the pause/relax in the bottom too...that would kill me! I use all the momentum to lock stuff out...

    I actually have never done this exercise...even though I have seen a ton of people at WSb use it...we just never did. Not sure the shoulder could take it now...floor press really beats my shoulder up.

    Bencher8 once again you don't listen. I said I don't agree with bands and chains when your in a shirt. They are good for raw work. We will see how your meet turns out before we continue this debate.
