Anyone can use Resistance Bands at any fitness level . They pose an additional challenge to Body Weight Exercises but do not exert the same pressure on your joints as do external weights such as dumbbells and kettlebells. They are also suitable for smaller, stabilizing muscles that normally do not work. For this reason, trainers like to train the little muscles in the hips, especially the gluteus medius, which plays the important role of stabilizing your quads when walking and running. (For this reason, many runners make drag band exercises during warm-up .)
Not to mention, resistance bands are small and lightweight, so they can easily be taken along small space. Whether you're just starting your fitness routine and looking for ways to do your exercises before adding weights, or just looking for a great exercise machine that's versatile and instantly resistant to travel. It pays to invest in some bands. You can find loops with loop tapes as well as sets of longer loop tapes (with and without handles) at Amazon at a pretty reasonable price.
We have worked with Melody Scharff, a Certified Personnel Trainer at the Fhitting Room in New York City, to compile a list of some great resistance band exercises that are worth trying. Select four or five of the items below, do 12 to 15 repetitions each, and repeat 3 times to create your own Resistance Band Training . Or add some of these traits to your normal routine to keep training the muscles you're trying to work on.
