 Why resistance Bands are your new best friend

If you are new to exercising or probably thinking about making a change in your routine and you are looking to tone your body and gain strength You have arrived at the right place.

I have been working out for 9 years and I go back and forth with different equipment to improve strength, flexibility, resistance etc.  But my favorites are the resistance bands and today I'm going to share with you all my reasons.

Resistance bands are my everything! and I don't understand why most people don't use them, they are not that scary or difficult to use and you can exercise all your body with them.

They come in different colors, types, and tension levels, they are cheap and lightweight so you can carry them everywhere; you can use them at home, at the gym or take them with you while traveling. 

They are perfect to use for rehabilitation exercises after an injury, because of the different tension levels they have, they can help you gain mobility and strengthen the affected area.

You can target smaller muscles to work with and strengthen joints (shoulder, knee, ankles, wrist); using a resistance band will also help with coordination and stability while working those specific areas.

They make all your training more challenging and offers variations of the same exercise since you can create tension from different angles depending on how you place the band and adjust the resistance to it according to your needs.

You can work shoulder, chest, core, legs, glutes, back, biceps, triceps, everything with a resistance band, it's easy to recreate an exercise that you would normally do at the gym with the band.

What kind of exercises can you d with a resistance band?

  • squats
  • leg extensions
  • glute bridge
  • lateral band walk
  • chest press
  • bicep curls
  • tricep extension
  • russian twist
  • reverse crunch
  • among others...

Is as effective as working out with weights, without the risk of an injury.

Can be used no matter what kind of exercise you do whether yo go to the gym, do pilates, yoga, ballet or even practice a martial art or just workout at home resistance bands will give take your workouts to the next level.

How do you use your elastic bands?


  1. I used to manage a fitness center and resistance bands were really popular, especially with the Silver Sneakers (seniors) members. I only used one once in physical therapy, but one thing I find attractive about them is they are easier to store than dumbells because they take up a lot less room. Thanks for sharing the tip!

  2. I was thinking of using resistance bands to exercise my legs throughout the day as I have a job in which I sit the majority of the day.

  3. I never tried resistance bands... Going to try it.. Thanks for sharing..😊

  4. I do use resistance bands for my yoga and mild excersise as they are soft and quite easy to use without causing injuries.this is something I will tell anyone to try.Thanks for sharing.

  5. So many uses for one band, love it! Thanks for the tips on ways I didn't know I could use them!

  6. I've always wanted to try resistance bands, but I was so hesitant. I hear it's better than using weights since you're using your own weight.

  7. I think these are great and take some training but work great!

  8. i love these workout ideas! I just picked up my routine again and resistance bands will help me get my workout at home soo much!
