alright guys how’s it going TRX traveler Adam here in this video we’re going to look at band pull-aparts, they’re really really good exercise we really get to strengthen the shoulder girdle and really good to isolate the rear deltoid off for your back as well let’s get to it the band pull apart there’s a few different ways you can do it you’ll see many people doing it different different ways and sometimes you see people doing like this taking it from a high position across your chest to a lower position and other times you’ll see people just out in front just kind of pumping it away like this and I think both ways a great you know both ways and have their merit especially if you just want to exhaust you maybe adding a bit of a challenge is set on the end where you saying right let’s get 70 band band pull apart and you just gone for it you know you’re really just kind of pumping away going for it pause and every 20 or something great burner however there’s a there’s a good way to be able to isolate as well with this so what I mean by isolate is we’re not you when we do this we’re using multiple muscles especially if I turn around here you can see my shoulder blades are contracted as I’m pulling I’m contracting even more so my back muscles are coming into play my mid my middle and rear deltoids has come into place there’s a lot of different muscles used there there’s nothing wrong with that that’s fine however if we’re looking to specifically isolate a muscle which I loved in my program top to isolate certain areas in it and eggs or certain areas what I’d like you to do is hold it out in front with an overhand grip and rather than retrack your shoulders so if I retracted do that I want you to protract and I want you to stay in a protracted position as you do in these and give a slight bend in the elbow so slight Bend now I’m protracted Lee and what the idea is it’s explode out not too far if I go too far I bring my back into play and the tension is lost on my rear deltoid and we want to target the rear deltoid here because that’s what creates it a very underused underworked and shoulder a lot of people have very well-developed front shoulders from lots of press ups and pushing but barely anyone has good rear deltoids and that’s what gives the shoulder a nice round look you know gives you that nice fu head that you see on a lot of stage athletes so protract the shoulders forward band out in front explode two out there and go down four one two three four explode one two three four explode look how I’m keeping a bend in my arms I’m not going too far I’m slightly contracting my stomach to lean forward a little bit one two three four five one two three four six one two three four seven and notice how I’m not letting the band come all the way in because it loses tension and we lose tension on the muscles then that’s not what you want I’m letting it go to about there and there’s still tension so it’s still tension to our muscles and then I explode it out and I’m coming back in I’m constantly keeping tension on my rear deltoid if you want to increase more tension make it harder just grip it shorter so I can barely even pull it apart so if I let it go a bit more about there explode out one two three four look I’m at positioner explode out one two three four see em I’ve got my shoulders pulled forward one two three four so that is a great way that I’d like to do band pull apart as I say there’s no right or wrong and there’s loads of different variations but I really love them to target the rear deltoid again I don’t have a problem especially with doing these ones like this where you’re doing high reps and you just kind of really pulling it apart you’ve gone for it and I’m using my back muscles here it’s engaging my shoulder muscles a lot of math girdle so it’s great for strengthening it’s no harm and that just is the same there’s no harm in doing it this way either you’re going to feel a burn probably more so in the front and they’re from the middle as well when you do it that way but when we’re really targeting and we’ll bend the elbows a little bit we’ll protracting forward we’re really isolating this rear deltoid muscle this this this third one at the back here so it’s a fantastic way to focus on that and so yes if you’ve got any questions or comments or any of the variations you know please leave them below and I always get back in respond to two when I can thanks very much for watching [Music]
