Squat with Resistance Bands

The squat is a compound, full body exercise that trains primarily the thighhips, and butt,  as well as strengthening the bones, ligaments and insertion of the tendons throughout the lower body. Squats are considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the legs, as well as developing core strength.

Squats with resistance bands offer many options and are super effective. You can do bands squats with arms up, arms down, connected to the bottom of the door and so on. If you are used to heavy squats with weights, you will LOVE squats with bands. The pain in your knees and back will be considerably less.

    1. My pleasure 😀 In case you need them, there are more videos with resistance bands on my youtube channel. Almost any exercise can be done with resistance bands. They are a good option, no doubt 😉

      1. Right! No problem for your back 🙂
        Maybe you still need to adjust some exercises or avoid others at first, after the surgery. Probably shrugs or up-right rows are not good ideas for you, yet.

  1. Useful post, bands are great to mix things up however, you shouldn’t train with bands only, the reason is that resistance bands change the strength curve. Our ‘natural’ strength curve is bell shaped, for example, hold a weight in your hand as if you are going to bicep curl the weight, the start position has little resistance, as you flex the elbow and raise the weight the intensity is increased 90 degrees (max intensity) and as this point is passed the intensity decreases yet again creating a bell shape force curve.
    Bands however start relatively light and just keep getting tighter / harder the more you stretch them, this does not mirror everyday life,and has little carryover to ‘real’ movements. like i said, good to mix things up but not to rely solely on bands.
