Doubling the Purples

My last 3 work outs have been based on getting new tension by doubling the Purple bands--on speed day--I set them like this
One end is around the collar --and then that follows over to the end--that gives your stabilizer muscles a real work out and the bar feels HEAVY at the very top as in a 225 pound bar feeling like 300 to 335...I tried this for 2 light days rather than using the Blue bands at their full length...the resistance is quite powerful--just a change of pace !

Pretty much the same 4 reps 8 to 12 sets with as much bar speed as possible !

On heavy pin press day I used the purples doubled from a lower stand in 'reverse mode' and got 3 singles with 505 --nice hard smooth even reps --the workout felt effective and puts me on target for a heavy shirt workout at Nancy's gym on Saturday...edging closer and closer to 600--hopefully all systems will be 'go' for the WABDL Pacific Coast championships September 13th in Tumwater Washington
