At the weakest point in your range of motion (normally starting position) the powerlifting (strength) bands apply minimal tension. Then, as you extend through your rep (during eccentric contraction) the powerlifting (strength) band’s ascending resistance increases gradually. This compliments your muscles as they increasingly exert more force while contracting. This symbiotic reaction is unachievable through the force of gravity.

Add our weight lifting bands to intensify your squats, deadlifts, shrugs, cleans, jerks, and bench press. Strength training with bands amplifies results while placing minimal stress on joints.

Advantages of Strength and Powerlifting Bands

  • Strength bands can be paired with any powerlifting exercise
  • Adjustable resistance levels range 5—300+ lbs
  • Weight supplement or substitute to weights   
  • Power band exercises naturally strengthen core stabilizers

How Do I use Strength and Powerlifting Bands?

See the power bands in action. Check out bench, squat and deadlift examples below:

Bench Press

Simply loop one band on each side of the barbell and attach the other ends to a low-lying anchor point, such as a heavy dumbell or the bench rack itself. This will provide less tension around the starting position and maximum tension when you approach a lockout position.

more info on the Bench Press >>


Loop one band on each side of the barbell and attach the other ends to a low-lying anchor point. For maximum range of motion and an added challenge, stand on top of a box or platform with the anchor points resting on the ground.

more info on the Deadlift >>


Loop two bands around each end of a barbell or stick and anchor the other ends to a sturdy object near ground level. A squat rack, dumbbells or kettlebells work well as an anchor point.

Shoulder Press

Wrap one band under the base of the shoulder press bench and insert each end of the barbell into it. Add weight for additional challenge.
