    For bench, I like anchoring the bands for bench press to dumbbells on the ground or pins/safeties in the rack vs going under the bench.

    For deadlift, I again like anchoring them to dumbbells or pins in the rack/hooks on the platform. If you're going to do "stand on the band" deadlifts, you'll just need one band.

    For squat, there's no way to really do it as described and I would anchor the bands to the rack or safeties.
    Thank you Jordan

    Tips on using bands

    I'm due to start Strength 1 in a couple of weeks, and have never used bands. I have limited equipment (barbell, plates, squat stands, bench, couple of dumbbells) so was planning on using bands in the following ways - any tips or alternatives?:
    • Bench - Loop the band underneath the bench and attach at each end of the barbell
    • Deadlift - Use two bands and loop each one under each foot and over the barbell
    • Squat - Same as deadlift

Working...
