I've tried reverse bands before, but I haven't used them in a long time. Keep in mind I lift raw (no wraps), so my comments below should be read with such lifting in mind.

Thanks man. I think my sprain being in the back of my ribcage, along the spine, might make it impossible to work thru, unfortunately.

Thanks for the video. Could you look at these roll-outs for me and see if I'm doing them correctly?

Also, if my triceps get sore from these, does that indicate I'm doing them incorrectly?
