Via the Diesel Crew blog : A quick video demonstration of the band setup for a dumbbell bench press. Good stuff.

Incidentally, doing push-ups using the same band setup (just upside down) is good fun. The twist stops it from accidentally hitting you in the back of the head.

Westside Dead Lift Secrets.

This review looks at the 2003 DVD edition of the Deadlift Secrets offering, which is an updated version of its early '90s predecessor. Whilst there has been a significant amount of change to some aspects of the Westside approach, the fundamentals remain constant and this DVD helps to show just how important those fundamental concepts are.
