Building Strength with Resistance Bands
They are typically rubbery in texture, and available in different colours, sizes and lengths. Some are designed in loops, while others are straight, flat or tubular with handles attached.
Resistance bands are one of the most versatile, simple and portable gym equipment available in the market, but most people overlook them. They are an easy way to keep fit while travelling. By incorporating these bands into exercises you are already familiar with, you can modify their difficulty level and gain full muscle fibre recruitment. This will strengthen both your muscles and bones.
Some exercises that resistance bands can be used with include:
- Glute bridge abductions
- Sideway crab walks
While generally easy to use, we should ensure that we are using the right bands for the exercises we are doing in order to prevent injuries from occurring.
