    What are you asking about specifically? The whole thread is about the use of bands in assistance/bodybuilding training.

      I am interested in bands for things like neck training, direct triceps and biceps work, and abs. Not for my compound lifts. I hear a lot of good experiences with them, but most guys are using them for strength work.
      Why wouldn't strength work be beneficial to size?

        im talkng about using them for assistance as opposed to resistance which everyone here is talking about.. for example on a squat, wrapping the bands above rather than below (resistance) so you have less weight out of the hole but more at the top, much like a lockout (assistance)

            Movements like reverse band squats, deads, bench, etc accomplish the same thing... they overload the top end of the movement. They just do it in a different way with a different feel.

              When I was dealing with some tricep pain, the bottom of the weighted dip movement bothered me. SO I used bands. Bottom of the movement was bodyweight so no pain, top of the movement was friggen heavy like it was pulling me to the earths core. It worked perfectly and I still do band dips like this. I hook the bands on the foot plates and the other side around my neck.

                Yes, resistance bands can help you in bodybuilding. Here are some exercises for chest development using resistance bands. https://exerciseresistancebands.net/...chest-muscles/

                  Yes bands very well have a place in bodybuilding. It’s also a great way to change the resistance curve of a machine that thst otherwise would not be so good. I often add bands to a shitty machine and it turns it into a great machine.

                  another little trick I do is a reverse band and a accommodated resistance band at the same time. Now you have a home made nice little smith machine feeling . Sounds crazy but don’t bash it until you try it!
