Look no further than resistance bands! We love them and here’s why….

 

 

  1. They still overload the muscle without needing gravity to provide resistance like a dumbell. Bands offer resistance. As resistance bands stretch, they create increased tension in your muscles and cause them to contract. The more you stretch the band, the more intense the resistance gets, and the harder the exercise becomes. You can also create more resistance by holding the resistance band in a way increases tension – like bringing your hands closer together when doing arm moves, for example.
