Conventional Deadlift against band(s)
8 x 4 @50-55%, every 60s.
*Looking to get comfortable using accommodating resistance here. This might even be the first time we've introduced accommodating resistance to the class setting at CFR. We use accommodating resistance techniques (bands/chains/etc.) to aid in getting stronger. It works by increasing the resistance (elongating the band in this case) as you get to a stronger point in the lift. Typically, in a conventional deadlift, the hardest part of the lift is getting it off the ground and as you move it past the knee you've got it locked up in the bag, right? Well, when you throw in accommodating resistance, now it gets harder and harder as you move through the full range of motion. So you MUST continue to maintain excellent form and technique throughout the entire lift, and for the conventional DL in particular, you need to continue to keep squeezing those glutes until you are fully locked out!
- If not comfortable with Deadlift for speed yet, complete sets of x5 reps, no band(s)
