    Hi,

    I like to do RDL as an exercise to cover overloading my mid-range of motion for my glutes. I use bands around my hips to make it efficient for glutes.

    Problem is my lower back strengt. I got feeling it interupt my working sets.

    I was thinking about solution to do it with one leg. Basicly it looks like when Joe and Terrence are doing solit squads and holding something to be more stable, but i use less knee flexion and focusing more in hios back and forward and hips are more flexed. I feel it great but band are not around hips but i have them from floor to my shoulder. I use very heavy bands so dont need any dumbell. I think it could be better choice for me because there maight be less tension on lower back and more on my glutes. Idea is if just one leg is working at that time i dont need so much force to perferm working set and lower vack and spine can handle.it better.

    I would like to hear you opinion on this.

    Maybe if you have other exercise to reolace this all.
    I am doing for my glutes also banded legpress woth high foot position
    45° hip extension
    Glutes bridges

    That is the reason why i want rdl in my progra, because i think with those exercises i cover mostly overloading in lengtened and shortened positions of glutes.

    If it not understendable llease let.me know and i will try to explain better.

    Thank you

    Thank you. One more question. Can this banded legpress be a good replacement for rdl? I feel my glutes working great on this exercise and i should be somewhere lengtened -mid range overloading so probably good for muscle building. Let me know what if can theoreticly be better do banded rdl or banded legpress if next exercise wold be glute bridge or 45° hip extension. Then i assume i can cover all ranges of motion.

    I am deciding if do banded legpress in my program twice when i feel glutes working most or do once legpress and next session rdl.
