'The Most BUTCHERED Movement Pattern"



BODY

Resistance bands are perfect for squats because they help control the squat movement from start to finish.


They provide resistance when you lower into a squat, which is called an eccentric movement, as well as resistance when you rise to the standing position, which is called a concentric movement.


This means your muscles are working under tension throughout the exercise, making them work harder.


Ultimately, this leads to muscle building. The exercise causes the muscles to tear and break down, which sends repair and muscle growth signals to the body.

Bottom Line?


Squatting with resistance bands is a low cost, convenient, and effective way to build muscle and strength in your glutes.


You can safely add resistance bands to most squats, provided you’re still able to maintain proper form. It’s best to start with lower-resistance bands and gradually increase resistance from there.
