Sure, the gym is full of dumbbells and machines and weights of all kinds. But resistance bands offer many benefits that standard weights can’t.
According to StrengthandConditioningResearch.com, training with elastics bands provides similar and sometimes even greater muscle activity vs weight training. One major difference is that it involves a lower amount of force on the joints, which means that more stimulus can be provided to the muscles with less chance of injury.
This is also good news for anyone with existing injuries or joint pain, because resistance bands may allow you to continue working out and performing exercises that you can’t with dumbbells.
More Exercise Options
With dumbbells or barbells, you are limited to certain body positions in a vertical plane of motion to use the force of gravity. When using resistance bands, you can perform exercises in both the vertical and horizontal planes. For instance, you can do a chest press or back row in a standing position rather than having to use a bench.
You can also train to perform sideways movements, ideal for athletic activities like swinging a baseball bat or golf club, as well as daily tasks like opening a door or moving a box.
Ideal For Rehabilitation
Resistance bands and tubes have been proven to improve the strength, size, and function of muscles in the elderly as well as those undergoing rehabilitation. Bands can provide very light or heavy resistance which can be used in targeted ways for specific muscles that also protect joints.
Weighted Resistance Loops are .5 pounds, 12 inches round made from our very own bungee material that we created. Fun exercise for weight loss, arm strength, toning arms, coordination, and fat burn. and as always, great for rehabilitation!
