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?

    Reverse band pulls..

    Does anyone do reverse band low pulls (rack pulls) or high pulls? Or do most just do reverse band off the floor?

    What are your thoughts?

    I did reverse band pulls off a rack because the rack I have access to has a fixed bar at about 2nd pin height so I really don't have any other way to do a reverse band pull, I can set up a regular band pull off the floor however. I do reverse band board work for bench, so not sure why it would hurt to do band work with less rom for deadlift.

    I think things like this can work. BIG uses reverse bands off the boardswith aton of success. No reason why it cant be tried on the pull with partials. I would do it off blocks though. the bar flexes more naturally and it will closer to an actual pull.
