Rock out with the band! Resistance bands are a great addition to any strength training routine or rehabilitation program, and they come in a variety of sizes, lengths, and resistance levels.
They’re also portable and easy to store, so they’re perfect for home use, hotel workouts, or making the most of a small space at the gym. Just like free weights, exercise bands come in a range of resistance levels, from highly stretchable to heavy-duty strength.
The most common types of bands are tube bands with handles, loop bands (aka giant rubber bands), and therapy bands. If you’re in doubt, a fitness professional can help determine which band is right for you, depending on your fitness level and your specific workout plan.
For most exercises, try aiming for 2–3 sets of 8–25 reps per exercise. Ready, set, stre-e-e-etch! Here’s a couple of exercises to get ypu started!!!
1. Front squat
- Stand on the band with feet slightly wider than shoulder width. Holding a handle in each hand, bring the top of the band over each shoulder. If the band is too long, secure it in place by crossing your arms at your chest.
- Sit straight down, chest up, abs firm, pressing knees out over your toes. Rise back up to the starting position. Repeat for 8–12 reps
2. Leg extension
- Kick it up a notch with this quad builder.
- Anchor a loop band in a low position on a support (like an incline bench), looping the other end around your ankle with the band positioned behind you.
- Step away from the anchor to create tension on the band, and position your feet hip-width apart.
- Shift your weight to your left foot and lift right leg from the floor.
- Extend knee until it straightens out in front of you.
- Slowly return to the starting position.
- Repeat for 8–12 reps before switching legs.
