Resistance Bands

RESISTANCE BANDS

Latex Flat Resistance Band Set of 4

All are made of 100% natural latex through a continuous layering process to ensure long life. Latex bands have better tensile strength and offer better elasticity. All bands are 2080mm in circumference and 4.5mm thick. Four different widths provide a range of resistance levels from X-light, Light, Medium to Heavy. (Red, Black, Purple, Green Set of 4)

Resistance bands come in different colours to indicate what level of resistance they provide. Some resistance bands feel much heavier than others.

Bule Resistance Band-X Heavy

This resistance band is best for getting started on training for bodyweight pull ups and adding resistance for elite athletes and people over 90kg. Also, a good choice for adding increment weight to power lifts. (Blue Band: X-Heavy - 64mm wide)

Yellow Resistance Band-XX Heavy

Orange Band: XX-Heavy - 83mm wide. Primarily used for adding weight to power lifts.

Fabric Resistance Band/Hip Band

Our Fabric Resistance Bands Set is perfect for toning your gluteus, hips and thighs Provided in three different strengths, the bands allow for a range of booty toning exercises and resistance levels. (Pink, Green, Grey Set of 3)

WAYS TO USE RESISTANCE BANDS

Full Workout: Yes, you can use resistance bands for an entire full-body workout; they’ll challenge and push your body. Depending on the size of your resistance band, you might not be able to go incredibly heavy on some of the motions where you’ll want more challenge, such as deadlifts and squats, so if you’re doing a bands-only full-body session, consider doing this as a circuit. Aim for one pull move (a row or pulldown or curl), one push move (a push up, overhead press, or triceps press down-style motion) and one leg move (squat, deadlift, or lunge) in every full-body session.

Combination: If you have access to dumbbells and barbells, or if you’re advanced enough with your bodyweight to create unilateral challenges (think: pistol squats and post push-up), consider using bands near the end of your workout. They’re a great way to promote an active and aggressive chest squeeze on a push up.

BENEFITS OF RESISTANCE BANDS

Resistance bands are great for those who want to exercise at home, or who like to take their workouts along when they travel, but their value doesn't end there. There are many benefits to these simple exercise tools, including versatility, convenience, safety, and effectiveness. The more you learn about the advantages of resistance band exercises, the more you'll be motivated to add them to your own home gym.

Resistance band exercises are surprisingly effective and offer many benefits over traditional free weights. Below are just a few of the resistance band benefits we want you to know!

  1. GET A COST-EFFECTIVE WORKOUT

Whether you buy them individually or as a set, resistance bands are an inexpensive addition to your home gym equipment.

  1. ADAPT EASILY FOR MULTIPLE FITNESS LEVELS

Resistance bands come in multiple resistance levels, usually light, medium or heavy. You can further 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.

  1. MODIFY FAMILIAR EXERCISES

Resistance band exercises are often based on familiar strength-training moves. For example, if you stand on one end of the cord and curl your arm up while holding the other end, you've replaced your standard dumbbell bicep curl.

  1. EXERCISE YOUR WHOLE BODY

Many resistance band kits come with suggested exercises for nearly every major muscle group in your body. Stepping on one end of a resistance band or looping it around a stationary object, for example, open many exercise possibilities.

  1. SAVE ON STORAGE SPACE

When you don't have a lot of room for a home gym, resistance bands are a great option that store in very little space. You can hang them on a hook after you exercise, or coil them up to store in a box or drawer.

  1. EXERCISE ON THE ROAD

Because they are so small and portable, resistance bands are a great way to take your workout with you when you travel. There are many resistances band exercises that can easily be done in the small space of a hotel room.

  1. ADD VARIETY TO YOUR WORKOUTS

Over time, your muscles adapt to any new exercise routine. It's a good idea to mix it up by cross-training with free weights, machines and resistance band exercises. Each will work your muscles in a slightly different way.

  1. EXERCISE SAFELY, EVEN WHEN ALONE

Resistance bands offer strength-training without the risk of dropping a heavy weight on your foot or crushing your fingers between weight plates. That makes them ideal for working out when you don't have a personal trainer or exercise partner to spot you.

  1. COMBINE WITH OTHER EXERCISE EQUIPMENT

While resistance bands work great on their own, they can also be combined with other exercise equipment. Performing bicep curls with both a resistance band and a dumbbell will give you the combined benefits of each type of equipment.

  1. GET AN EFFECTIVE WORKOUT

Although there are differences between free weight and resistance band exercises, both are effective. Picture the arc motions your arm makes while doing a bicep curl. Free weights will feel heaviest at the beginning of that arc, while resistance bands make your muscles work harder at the end of the arc (when the band is most taut). Either way, your body is moving against resistance, and that will give your muscles an effective workout.
