Are you working on building out those glutes?
Banding above the knees gets the glutes activated immediately!
In this video I am using it for my weighted wide squats. This is so hard that I have to drop my weight way back to complete my sets. The glutes are activated and it’s intense. You have to fight to keep your knees from caving!
I use the band in my thrusting, side leg work and squats/deads.
