Incorporating resistance bands into your training is often seen as a beginner’s workout. I’m here to tell you from personal experience, resistance bands can be challenging for even experienced lifters. I did P90X once with only resistance bands and I got super lean.
These power-packed elastic tubes provide many benefits that can add a new dynamic to your workout routine. Resistance bands are not meant to completely replace free weights but add a new twist to your workouts.
Bands can be added to most free weight exercises to produce resistance not only on the concentric (way up) and also on the eccentric (way down).
Here are a few of the benefits resistance bands can bring and how to incorporate them into your everyday workouts.
Increased Flexibility Incorporating Resistance Bands
Using resistance bands instead of free weights allows your joints and muscles to have a larger range of motion throughout the lift which will help to increase your flexibility. They can also be used in smaller resistance levels to accomplish pre-workout and post-workout stretches.
An Inexpensive Workout
Whether you buy them individually or as a set, resistance bands are an inexpensive addition to your home gym equipment. Some resistance bands are even are sold with popular exercise DVDs.
With dumbbells, it is very easy to lose form and control of the weights. To gain muscular strength, you have to push your body to higher levels and when you do, it is important to keep proper form and safety.
By using resistance bands you can remain confident about controlling the weight and resistance to keep yourself safe.
Great For All Ages And Fitness Levels
Resistance bands come in multiple resistance levels, usually light, medium, or heavy. You can adjust the amount of resistance during exercise just by giving more or less slack on the band, as well as by combining multiple resistance bands to increase the challenge. I use flat pull-up bands on my pull-up tower to assist me in pull-ups, it’s a great way to develop the muscles, and it still a heck of an accomplished workout.
We all know how tough it can be to stay committed to your workout routine. Events such as vacations, kids, and life, in general, find a way to interrupt your schedule. Free weights cannot be packed into a suitcase and taken across the country.
Again, we do not want to completely toss aside the benefits free weights can bring. But on days that we cannot fit free weights into our routine, resistance bands are a fantastic way to continue making muscular gains.
Bands Are Space Savers Vs A Dumbbell Collection
When you don’t have a lot of room for a home gym, resistance bands are a great option because they can be stored in a tiny space. You can hang them on a hook after you exercise, or coil them up to store in a box or drawer.
