Band Resisted Push-ups
- Use a band tough enough to provide decent resistance, while still allowing full extension.
- Loop the band around each arm and across the mid-tricep.
- Perform either on a low barbell or on the floor.
Try out 21’s! The name refers to the number of reps you need to perform, here’s how it’s done.
First you need to load up a Barbell or EZ Curl Bar with your chosen weight.
Tip: go lighter than you think, you don’t want your form to break down before the end. I recommend 50-60% of what you might expect to curl in a normal exercise.
First 7 reps: Starting from the bottom of the movement, curl until your forearms are parallel with the ground, then back down.
Second 7 reps: Starting from halfway, curl to the top of the movement and back to halfway.
Last 7 reps: Starting from the bottom of the movement, curl all the way up and back down.
You can do more than one set of this exercise and it’s a great choice for the end of an arm workout.
