About the Band Assisted Lunge Workout
As a big believer in workout preparation, band assisted training is very often a go to for me. It allows me to mobilize and activate key muscles that I will be loading up with heavier resistance soon.
If you are a 40+ aged person, those first few sets are sometimes stiff and tight. Not the case when you do band assisted training prior to your lift workout. This Band Assisted Lunge Workout is a staple of mine that I use in the following situations:
- Pre-Lower Body Workout
- Post-Lower Body Workout for Lengthening
- Post-Lower Body Finisher
- Recovery Workout
- For clients that struggle with squatting or lunging due to injury or painful joints
Link up two bands and make sure the attachment point is high to assist both in the horizontal and vertical vectors. Plus, it keeps the band around your hips better.
I will use long duration sets with short rest transitions since mobility is the goal and the exercises are not that fatiguing.
