All About Resistance Bands


Visitors: 225

Resistance bands, often referred to as resistance tubes or exercise bands, are the most underrated form of exercise in the world of fitness. Whether your aim is to build lean muscle or shed off that excess body fat or get those abs, a cool set of elastic bands, will help you accomplish your goals from the comfort of your own home when you use them properly.

Why should you pay for expensive gym memberships or bulky, overpriced home gym equipment such as Bowflex, when you could do all the same exercises at home with a cool set of cheap, versatile and portable resistance bands?

As a professional muscle builder, I'd advise you to spend on the resistance band around $50 on these resistance bands. And workout with them.

When it comes to choosing a set of resistance bands, you've got consider a few points. The bands should have good quality. Bands that are made of poor rubber and those providing poor elastic resistance will not get you any results. You should also check whether the set includes door anchors and clipping systems.

With clipping systems you can attach multiple bands together and get a higher level of resistance. And the door anchors provide you with the facility to recreate any gym exercise. The bands will let you workout anywhere, anytime as you wish. You'll have practically no restrictions and can pack them inside a bag and move on.

You should start your workouts with a few minutes of cardio and then you should move on to workout with the bands. There are loads of exercises you can do with these bands. And there are some resistance band companies who offer free training on how to do and which exercises to do.

As a professional muscle builder I'd recommend you the Bodylastics system for its benefits. It has free training material and is the most effective home gym in the market. Visit the Bodylastics website Here
