    Hi!

    Is the lockout of all presses and dips where one of my clients always struggle the most on every rep

    I dont know if it’s because his structure (long arms relative to torso) or weak triceps… maybe both

    The thing is, can be detrimental for someone in his situation to reverse band his presses?

    Have would you deal with It?

    Thanks in advance!!!!

    Well reverse banding changes the concept of the exercise completely. You now have changed the profile. So, you’d have to adjust to that.

    If you’re concerned about a “lockout” keep practicing the skill of pressing and dips and over time that skill will improve provided you are managing their sets correctly and doing all you can with your in set coaching to give the proper input to improve quality.

    Thank you very much Bryce!
    I’ll keep the reverse banded variation out for a time, as I don’t want to overemphasize the difficulty of the portion of the rep where he is the weakest, specially on chest and shoulders focused exercises

    Is he a powerlifter? I’m not really sure why struggling at lockout is a concern? And there are a few too many factors to say the a band/reverse band would be bad/good. A common cause of “being bad at lock out” is just fatigue from the first part of the rep, potentially preventing them from finishing (not something being week in a specific range). So if that’s the case, reverse band could help fix the issue. In general, it’s never bad to have a better profile. For anyone. But you don’t “need” any single exercise either. I think the bigger issue is likely not being too concerned about performance in a specific ROM. Unless you can somehow directly correlate that with limiting results somehow
