I am going to look to order and use bands in my workout to do some speed lifting. Looking on the site I saw that Dave Tate recommends one kind of band.
Looking at the bands I am confused a bit on which to use and how to incorporate that into my workouts.
For example: I bench about 290 1rm. According to most speed workout recommendations I am seeing a 8x3 workout using roughly 50% of my max so around 145lbs. Does this weight include the resistance of the band in it? From what I understand “weight” of the band tension varies as you move up. How do you apply this to your bench?
Also in terms of which band to use, I am seeing that there are mini bands as well as light bands. Any suggestion from people who use them on what somebody like me would want? I figure I wouldnt go above using the Light band at least to start with, but should i just use the mini or super mini band initially?
Any advice or help on this is greatly appreciated. If there is anything else I didnt mention that you can add is great.
