Master These Upper Body Attached Muscle Building Exercises
Attached band training provides you with the opportunity to incorporate horizontal vector training which is not an option when using gravity dependent free weights only. Horizontal vector training provides you with several benefits in regards to improving total body function and recovery.
- De-loads joints making it a more joint friendly training experience
- Allows for rotational movements not possible with gravity dependent free weights
- Instantly trains core stabilization by providing anti-extension and anti-rotation forces
- Creates distal joint stabilization when combined with the ascending resistance of a band
Why Horizontal Vector Training is Important
Building muscle requires maximal muscle recruitment
To facilitate a muscle building effect you need to increase muscle recruitment. This can be done through increasing rep volume or resistance.
To facilitate maximal muscle recruitment with horizontal vector band training we are going to make sure your base of support (BOS) is optimal so that primary muscles are able to create as much force as possible.
As a result, we are going to use the most stable base of support to ensure balance and stability is ready to handle greater levels of resistance.
