Banded Push-Ups

Banded Push-Ups, for when you want to look technical AF....

The biggest restriction with Push-Up is the inability to progress in loading (adding weight to the movement as you get stronger).

The benefit of banded Push-Ups is deloading at the bottom of the movement, where resistance is at a minimum due to less stretch through a band. The bottom position is often the most stressful portion of the exercise, which is why deloading it is great for shoulder health. The strongest portion of the movement is at the top, accommodating the most resistance, therefor keeping great resistance through the full range of motion.

Correctly utilising bands like this can help keep constant tension through the full range of motion, help increase metabolic stress (PUMP) and of course let everyone else in the gym know that you have an amazing imagination.
