    Haha, 1 band? I've never seen it done, but fair enough. Some guys like to call reverse band work "future method," because ideally you're handling a weight that you plan to use without assistance in the near future. Just fyi.

    Good work, man.

    Yeah I just call it resistence or assistance work. Depending on how we are using the bands. Haven't heard the "future method" term before, but it makes sense.

    What is wrong with 1 band? Wanted some assistance in the bottom, but not much... Probably took about 30-40lbs at the bottom, was a small band. If we had used two, one on each side it probably would have been wayyy too much assistance.
    But, not really a point worth arguing. My training is going well all and all

    Not arguing, I was just noting I've never seen or thought to use 1 band.

    Maddog slingshot and hanging blue bands should do the trick! I saw a 242 hit 520 last meet, he was about your height and yoked to hell and back. You ready, man? I'm psyched.

    I am super ready. Very pumped. Might have to find a sauna in the area so my girl and I can lose the last few pounds before weigh in. we will see.\
