    Hey Joe, regarding band setup, I completely understand the concept and how to setup for slack. I just had a question regarding the tension your particular setup takes off at the bottom, do you have any reference at all, like sled + 1 plate per side, etc of what’s coming off at the bottom?

    Just curious if you ever ended a set at the bottom and unloaded plates and saw where the sled started to move from the bands, or if you’d be willing to see

    Hope this makes sense, I feel like those last reps are almost perfect when theres a LOT of band tension a the bottom and full slack at lockout, but i also don’t want to be shorting myself on load in the lengthened range just to have a 10/10 grinder on my last rep. Unfortunately I don’t normally have a training partner so I try to get the band setup nailed for optimal pants poopage in a given set haha

    Hope this makes sense, thanks!!

    Thanks Joe! It sounds like our setups are pretty close

    If you happen to feel like doing the plate thing great (if you post it on your story I’ll probably see it) and you can Tag me @fitted_sheetz if you feel super generous 😂. If not no big deal, this was solid explanation as always which helps!
