Resistance Band Training
Strength training is a must in anyone’s workout routine. Whether you are looking to burn fat or build muscle, strength training helps you do both. The more muscle you have, the more fat your body burns, which means even those who are hitting cardio hard should implement strength training. Resistance bands are an affordable way to add strength training to the mix.
Start Based On Your Current Fitness Level
Buy resistance bands based on your current strength level. Most resistance bands are labeled beginner, intermediate or advanced. Buy the resistance bands in tune with your strength right now. You will be able to upgrade later on, if needed. All resistance bands will help build muscle, as long as you are doing enough reps.
Some resistance bands have the ability to give you workouts at varying levels and have adjustments to take them up a notch. These are a great investment for those who will have multiple people using one set of resistance bands or those who want to change up their routine based on their mood.
Resistance bands won’t send you to the poor house, but online the deals are even better. Read reviews when buying resistance bands online. Online shoppers love to share information with each other and most reviews are in-depth. Online reviews are the best resource for choosing the best resistance bands, especially if you have already tried a set and know what you don’t want.
Beware Of Quality
Quality definitely matters when it comes to resistance bands! Remember you will be yanking and pulling at the bands over and over again, which means quality rules when investing in resistance bands. Resistance bands with a very low price tag can sometimes be low quality and thus break after a few uses. If you spot resistance bands for a very low price, be sure to do a quick search of reviews to get an idea of the quality you are signing up for when buying them. There are a lot of fantastic deals out there, especially online, but you also want to spend your hard-earned money on equipment that will serve you for several years.
Try The Resistance Bands Out
Some fitness stores have resistance bands out to sample. Here you can give the bands a whirl and see how they hold up to your strength. If you are obsessed with the resistance bands you are used to at the gym, most resistance bands are from commercial sources but you may try finding the particular brand online.
If you land a pair of resistance bands you are in love with, try to buy another pair while they are available. Resistance bands are ever-changing due to technology and brands producing new models with lightweight handles or more than three resistance options on one set of bands. Because of this, it is easy to get resistance bands for a great price. Good quality resistance bands cost between $20-$30. Paying less can sometimes mean sacrificing quality, but if you are in a pinch or short on cash, know that lesser quality resistance bands may stand up to up to six months of regular use.
Resistance bands are a smart investment for at-home exercise equipment because they travel easily and work in any space. Utilizing resistance training with your own body weight is an affordable way to build strength when the gym isn’t in your budget. Resistance bands can be used indoors and outdoors and fold up in a suitcase or backpack with ease for exercising on the go. Overall resistance bands are a wise buy for those who want to get active anywhere, at any time.
