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.
Powerlifting (strength) bands accelerate strength training by complementing the way your muscles work. They give ascending resistance as your muscles increasingly exert more force through eccentric contraction. The powerlifting bands apply minimal tension at your weakest point, near starting position, then as you extend through your rep the band’s resistance increases gradually as you approach a lockout position. In other words, your muscles give you more force the more they contract and the bands give you more tension the more they stretch. This symbiotic relationship is unachievable with free weights. 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.
Which Strength Bands are Right for Me?
For most powerlifting exercises your best option is to purchase a pair of bands in order to make sure the resistance is the same on both sides of the bar. Our most popular combos are shown below. Find the amount (in lbs) you want to add to your lift, click the product image.
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
Our bands are made using a unique layering process, similar to how a roll of tape is crafted – layer upon layer. This design makes them the toughest and safest bands on the market; as it prevents the bands from snapping if they get a slight tear.
How Do I use Strength and Powerlifting Bands?
See the power bands in action. Check out bench, squat and deadlift examples below:
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.
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.
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.
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.
