    Did a few sets of those today and they’re great! I’d like to be able to do them effectively without holding onto the stair railing but I don’t think I’ve got the balance down completely. Plus I’m...

    The width of the band is too great to wrap around a door handle unfortunately. And the issue with the bed leg is that either the band won’t stay around my ankle (prone) or the band just hangs too low...

    Nice, sissy squats feel pretty good... kind of easy though, but I figure I can do them with one leg or add some weight by wearing a backpack over my chest/torso.

    Band around neck is a bit awkward...
  • Resistance band leg curls/extensions, band only

    I’m using a pretty large rubber loop band. I have no anchor, no ankle straps, no bench. Well, I’ve got a lightweight chair and a floor. Are they possible? Wondering about RDLs too, or at least a...

    The high I get when I lift is indistinguishable from alcohol intoxication. I get weird.

    Ok, got the blue band today.

    Tried out some squats and deads and now it makes sense to me... the heaviest point of the lift is not at the bottom like weights, but at the middle to top.

    It’s...

    So the idea is that I loop the band around however many times To create the level of desired resistance, unraveling it as I progress? Marking the band with a pen to track progress?

    Rather than a...

    Another thread about bands

    How do I select a resistance band based on its resistance range (30-60, 7-100, etc.) to closely emulate what I’m moving in the gym? For instance, how much resistance would I use for push-ups to...

    Which ones? Seeing a variety of results on Amazon... trying to go heavy with these

    Also, should I pay attention to the length of the bands to accommodate my height as I’m shorter than average?

    I guess I don’t understand how a calisthenics workout would produce as much mass as a workout using 80% of a 1RM for 8 reps. If that were the case, why bother with equipment at all,l? Why bother...

    As in... bodyweight squats? Pointless.

    If my backpack can’t hold even 50lbs of my DBs without busting, also pointless.

    My partner is actually a viable weight for DLs (too heavy for squats,...

    Legs at home... bands?

    It’s not particularly difficult to hit upper body with the tools at my disposal: pull-up bar, a couple sets of 20lb DBS, 3 10lb DBs and a tool box with a handle to stuff them in. But I’m at a loss...

    If I don’t have access to a gym or home equipment beyond a pull-up bar and a set of 20 lb dumbbells for months on end, I sure as hell will.

    Thankfully I found a gym that will remain open until...

    Lol I forgot what this thread was originally about. Eating, mostly. I only eat at maintenance (or an average of), but shouldn’t I expect that number to decrease by at least a few hundred calories?

    Ramping volume, rest times no less than 3 minutes up to 6 for squats and deads. Lots of bathroom breaks from endless water guzzling? The time will come down after I deload and reset volume though....
