John Graham, Senior Network Administrator in Network Development at St Luke’s University Health Network demonstrates two excellent exercises utilizing a resistance band. Utilizing Resistance Bands can increase strength, power and endurance in important movement patterns and muscle groups utilized by athletes in their respective sport.

Utilization of Exercise Combos can train multiple muscle groups of the body in combinations that provide for increased workout intensity and volume to increase muscle strength, power, hypertrophy, and endurance development for athletes.

The Resistance Band Rear Delt T & Y develop the muscles of the rear shoulder and upper back.

 

Resistance Band Rear Delt - T – Stand in an Athletic Position (chest up, shoulders back, and a slight flex in the hips, knees, and ankles). Secure the Band securely to a Power Rack, Stationary Post, or piece of exercise equipment. Face the attachment and step back to a position where there is tension in the band with the elbows straight. Holding the handles in a neutral position (palms facing in) close together, pull the handles outward at shoulder height to position where the handles are directly horizontal from the shoulders. Return to the starting position with control.
