Resistance Bands: Explained

By Life Made Better

BUFFALO, NY, July 03, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Rock out with the band! Life Made Better's Resistance bands are a great addition to any strength training routine or rehabilitation program and come in a variety of sizes, lengths, and strengths. This portable exercise equipment is easily stored, making it perfect for home use, hotel workouts, or when you're tight on 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 include tube bands with handles, loop bands (aka giant rubber bands), and therapy bands. When in doubt, a fitness professional can help determine which band is right for you, depending on your fitness level and specific workout plan.

For most exercises, try aiming for 8-25 reps for 2-3 sets per exercise. This works well to enhance athletic performance or improve body coordination by the varying tensions in the resistance bands, and different workouts!

The resistance bands from Life Made Better are truly one of a kind, because of their versatility in the exercise community. They are also double tubed and made up of the highest grade of elastic bands available, and feature easy grip handles for our customer's convenience.

You can create resistance and tension at any angle, from overhead, below, side to side etc. to change workout intensity, which creates muscle confusion that works well with prominent workouts such as P90X and Insanity. In the Life Made Better resistance band package, there are five varying strengths from 10lbs to 30lbs. Door anchors are also included to help create different workouts for you!

Ultimately, Life Made Better's resistance bands are perfect for beginners with basic and traditional moves and great for intermediate users.

Ready, set, streeetch!
