Hey check this out. I was lucky enough to attend the Secrets of Strength Seminar down in NJ a few months ago. While I was there, I was talking with my boy Joe Defranco and was telling him about a modification for the banded goodmornings his athletes were doing.
I told Joe the goal of banded good mornings was not only to activate the posterior chain (glutes, hamstrings, erectors (isometrically)) while grooving a neutral position hip flexion/extension movement. I told Joe if we hope to engage the posterior we need to engage the upper back, including the lats, rhomboids and traps. Joe is a smart dude and he exactly what I was talking about as soon as I said it.
Band pull aparts are a great way to target this upper back musculature. So why not combine the two movements.
Here is Joe’s video giving me props and again providing his athlete’s with some innovative training means.

I’ve been around a long time and I’ve seen most of the muscle building programs promoted on the internet. And let me tell you something, they are missing MANY very essential components.
I’ve summarized these missing components in my new killer video. It is the one you’ve been waiting for from me.
It has PROOF!
I think you’ll like this one, you have to check it out.

This video demonstrates a tornado ball rotation while bridging on a swiss ball. Dynamic stabilization of the entire torso; the abdominals AND posterior chain. The lifter has to bridge and remain parallel to the floor throughout the movement and remain fixed while the tornado ball is rotating.
If you do not have a tornado ball, a med ball in a sandbag/dufflebag/pillow case can be used.
The great thing about this exercise is that the lifter is isometrically contracting the anterior and posterior chains against a dynamic, ever changing tension. This increases the frequency AND intensity of the motor unit recruitment which is exponentially more beneficial than a static, long duration contraction. Not only that, there is also a deceleration and acceleration component to the lift as well.
Think interval training rather than slow, low intensity treadmill.
Also, this version is easier on the shoulders than the standard swinging overhead version of the tornado ball.
Oh yeah, the video is a LITTLE FOGGY :). We were in the middle of a conditioning circuit and the camera guy was heated!

The core is not only about building strength in fixed movement patterns, it is also defined as developing the required torso rigidity (isometric contraction of the anterior and posterior chains) to prevent injury and express power.
In this new video, you’ll see another Diesel Crew original, Kettlebell Rocks. They are named rocks because you have to remain rigid and unwavering during the partner engagement.
The partner will throw the kb side to side at the peak of the swing. This is the exact moment that the lifter will brace, flex their lats, contract their abdominals and entire posterior chain to keep the kb path in line with a conventional swing.
The partner should be forceful and not tentative with their part of the movement. This movement is very CNS intensive and because of this, I would recommend anywhere from 8-12 reps to ensure quality.
