[New] episode of ‘Ask DeFranco’s Gym’ & News!!

Regardless of who you are, where you train, or what your goals may be; you should be performing band pull-aparts. The long list of benefits that this exercise provides can’t be ignored. Unfortunately, most people absolutely butcher this amazingly simple movement. So I felt the time was right for me to take a stand…

In this episode of Ask DeFranco’s Gym, I show you how to drastically increase the effectiveness of this awesome exercise.

PS – After a year of collaboration and (original) content creation, Smitty and I have finally completed the DeFranco Insider membership site! Our goal was to create a “one-stop-shop” training resource for athletes, coaches, lifters, gym owners, therapists and weekend warriors…and we think we accomplished our goal! From the Monthly Workouts, to the Premium Training Logs, the members-only Contests and Challenges, the huge video Exercise Index, and the members-only Forum — there is literally something for everyone! We truly feel we have created the #1 training resource on the internet. I’d love for you guys to go check it out for yourself. Click the DeFranco Insider pic below and I hope to see you on the inside! 



  1. Good afternoon Joe, I’m a 57 year old looking for a basic program to regain strength and fitness. I’m a shift worker for the local utility company and work some long crazy hours. I am lacking a template to follow and have a tough time being consistent over a years time. I really want to get a whole year of training under my belt without any interruptions. Can you help me? I think you and Smitty do a great job and I’m a big fan of yours. Thanks for your help!
