Cable Pullthroughs are a fantastic exercise to work the posterior chain, especially the glutes. Some gyms don’t always have cable pulley machines OR someone may be hogging yours. Here’s a great alternative as demonstrated by my friend, Jonny Slick from Straightshot Training.

All you need for this variation is a resistance band. The thicker the band, the greater the resistance, so you can select a band that will be appropriate for your given rep ranges. Simply attach the band to a low point and setup like you would normally for your pullthroughs. Notice how Jonny keeps his back nice and flat and his spine neutral through the entire movement. He’s really using his hip hinging pattern perfectly here, which is important for proper execution of this exercise.
