Have you heard about resistance bands? Feeling bored in your workout? Looking for a new approach to spark some life into that exercise routine? How about a safe and effective way to strengthen weaker muscle groups while still challenging the stronger muscles? Recovering from an injury? It just might be time to consider Resistance Bands! Resistance bands offer the ease of portability and storage while brining great versatility to nearly any workout! You may have seen them lying around the gym, highlighted in a recent fitness article or at your local sporting goods store and wondered, "what can these do for me?" Really, the question is what can't they do!
A few resistance band facts:
They come in a variety of sizes, colors, and strengths to complement most any fitness level.
They challenge muscle groups by offering varied tension throughout an exercise movement
They are a low impact, safe alternative to traditional free weights and heavy load bearing fitness equipment
The user is able to dictate the amount of tension placed upon a muscle group
Because of a resistance bands ability to vary tension throughout an exercise movement they actually enable the user to strengthen weaker muscle groups while simultaneously challenging those that are strong.
Their low impact design also allows users to engage in a variety of exercise routines without the strain of conventional weight bearing equipment, further reducing the risk of injury to muscles, tendons, joints, and bones.
Because the user is able to dictate the amount of tension placed on a muscle group, they can also determine how they will use their bands; to build muscular strength or endurance, or both!
Resistance bands are great resources for strength training routines, balance and coordination exercises, and even stretching circuits!
Bonus: bands require very little space are affordable and portable, making them the ideal piece of equipment to use at home, at work, on vacation, or at the gym!
