One great feature about working out with looped resistance bands is that you can combine different training concepts into each exercise. It’s great to explore the way your body naturally moves and challenge yourself by combining variations in strength, stretching, and stabilization. This exercise is an example that combines all three of those pillars. Don’t be afraid to get creative. Think outside the band.Read More

I’m all about eating clean, but I always think there is no shame in splurging occasionally. While there is plenty deliciously yummy, healthy foods out there, every once in awhile you just need to have a scoop of ice cream or a few of your favorite chips. However, the problem is sticking to just a scoop or just a few. Having a small treat isn’t going to ring you up super high on the calorie meter, however the majority of us are eating way more than the recommended serving size. So while we look at the nutritional info and can live with the extra 100 or so calories of fat and sugar, we are likely getting way more as the portions we eat don’t match what the back of the box. That’s why today I’m compiling a list of all my favorite guilty foods to discuss the unhealthy reality when it comes to portion size. (Read More)Read More

I love dips as much as anyone but also attest that dips can get monotonous if not spiced up. So why not throw some spice in your dip and make your arms and chest burn a little more?
This is a burnout technique meant to increase the amount of dips you can do in each set. If you can do a set of 5–15 unassisted dips, give yourself a pat on the back and then go grab a band.
This quick video will show you how to perform dip burnouts until muscle fatigue by adding incremental elastic assistance.
We advocate using at least two bands. The bands offer various assistance tiers; for example, you can do the first set with a heavy black band, the second set with a robust purple band, and finally the third consecutive set with both the heavy and robust band.

People often ask how to optimize their workout for efficiency. One trick worth noting is the power of the push-pull combo.
What does this mean in practical terms?
First, we advocate the super-set training method. A super set is when you string multiple sets together to form one continuous set before resting. We advocate super-setting exercises that strengthen different muscle groups (such as pushups and pull ups). By combining multiple exercises that target different body parts prior to resting you do two things: (CONTINUED)Read More
