There are many different exercises and pieces of equipment to exercise with.
In this course, Patrick McHenry talks about the 41 inch band, which is a piece of equipment that allows the lifter to perform a wide variety of exercises, can be taken with the lifter on the road, outside or in the gym, and requires the lifter to use stabilizing muscles during the lifts.
For the beginning lifter it is important to remember the Ways We Move:
Forward/ backward / lateral/ diagonal/ up/down/ rotation horizontal/ rotation vertical. Our programs must incorporate the way we move during training sessions. The body knows movement not muscles, so train patterns not individual muscles.
