Overview of Banded Tibialis Raise
Alright, so you've been killing it with Wall Tibialis raises, congrats! If you're not familiar with them, check out our previous post - we cover the basics, movement, training plan, and all that good stuff. But now, it's time to step it up a notch with banded Tibialis raises.
Banded Tibialis raises are a fantastic way to add some resistance to your Tibialis training. It helps develop a stronger mind-muscle connection with your Tibialis, while also making it harder - both are important for Tibialis training!
How to perform Banded Tibialis raises?
1. Grab a resistance band and wrap it around a stationary object like a bench or a rack.
2. Wrap the other end of the band around your foot. Now, move away from the band until you feel a nice little stretch.
3. Once the band is tight enough, flex your foot towards you, then away. That's one rep!
So, how often should you do these?
The Tib Bar Bros recommend 1-3 times a week, doing 7-20 reps per set, for 1-3 sets per session. Start with the lightest resistance band you have, and make sure you're doing strong and clean reps. Once you can easily do 20 reps, it's time to step it up to the next band.
Banded Tibialis raises are especially great at the bottom stretch, so take it slow and focus on that mind-muscle connection. And don't forget to keep proper form throughout the exercise.
In summary, banded Tibialis raises are a great tool for your Tibialis training. They're cost-effective and help you learn about the deep stretch under load. In our opinion, bands are second only to the Tib Bar.
