New Way To Train With Extensor Bands

Jonathan McMillan

Recommended Posts

Haven't posted an ideer on this board in quite some time. It feels great to offer something constructive (at least I think it is from my limited experimentation). My wife got me IM's exband your hand bands for Christmas. I have been training them off and on with high rep sets ie. 30 for each colour. Just recently I tried doing something else and am quite excited about the result:

I hold the band in an open position and then perform various flexions of the wrists. Haven't tried rotational movements yet but I think this would work very well too.

Give these a try!

Sounds like an akward movement - and those are good! Thanks for the idea!

Great to know you've done them be 4!!!!!

I've never tried holds in different wrist positions before, although I did experiment with varied arm positions for gripper closing. My favourite was behind the back like giving yourself a hammer lock/chicken wing whatever it's called. However, it can't compare to your #3 in the 1 arm superman position :rock

They! :yikes - They're fun :D

They'd also be a a great way to help warmup the wrists prior to sledgework/bending.

Thanks Jon@han!
