Hanging Weights

By wrapping a band around a weight and performing exercises (shown in video above), as opposed to holding the weight itself, you construct a resistance training environment that can serve as a great tool for just about anyone. Here’s why…

  1. If you choose to implement this, you’ll experience unforeseeable and uncertain movements, shifts, and alterations while performing exercises. Therefore, this technique heightens mental awareness, causes you to naturally contract just about every muscle on your skeleton, and disciplines you to sustain this enormous amount of tension throughout the entire duration of the lift.
  2. The more the weights wobble, the more they will cause you to shake like crazy, involuntarily. The extra tension, tightness, or irradiation (concurrent activation potentiation as research calls this) this type of training creates, can reduce your risk of injury by almost automatically producing joint centration without extra effort of cuing.
  3. From personal and coaching experience, clients tend to feel and receive less stress on their joints, and more on the muscles they’ve intended to train with this method. It also can significantly increase grip strength if loaded appropriately and consistently.

There are many other ways to use this technique, so don’t limit yourself to the ideas shown. For example, of you don’t want to use it as part of your normal training program, use it for a deload week if you incorporate them.
