Hip Band is a resistant elastic fabric band, finished with stitching and featuring a non-slip inner rubber material.
When placed above the knees, it is the perfect complementary tool in bending and hip extension exercises. Especially suitable for squat and hip thrust, to facilitate a greater activation of the small-medium glutes and tensors of the fasciae latae. Hence the name hip band or hip resistance band.
During the execution of squats with high overload, a hip band placed above the knees provides the athlete with a cue to correct the recurrent error of narrowing the gap between knees and leading the legs to assume an incorrect X position.
The HIP BAND is also popular due to its remarkable effectiveness in the training of the buttocks. It is also called Glute Band. The HIP BAND can be integrated as part of a training circuit dedicated to training the buttocks. The band adds extra resistance when performing squats, lunges, sumo deadlifting, hip abduction, hip adduction, inner and outer thigh contractions.
The use of the HIP BAND on the 9122 HIP THRUST PLATFORM BENCH is beneficial, given that the bent knee exercise determines a high work of the buttocks with a great glutes squeeze.
