Should you add resistance bands into your training routine?
The answer is YES!
Resistance bands are a great addition to any workout, especially those home workouts whilst we are stuck in isolation and not able to gain access to a gym.
Here are 5 reasons why:
Bands cater for all fitness levels
You can use different variations of resistance bands – light, medium and heavy, catering for people of all strengths, size and fitness levels. To further adjust the resistance level, all you have to do is give more or less slack on the band! Many resistance band exercises can be performed seated. This allows people of all ages and abilities to perform beneficial movements.
Resistance bands are an inexpensive addition to your home gym. You can buy them at all major sporting retailers or even here at Cremorne Physio.
Save your storage space
You don’t need much space at home to store your resistance bands – you can hang them on the back of your door. Also, when the time comes to travel, pack them in your bag. Then there’s no excuse for missing your workout!
You don’t have to worry about lifting more than you can handle and dropping a heavy weight. Bands are safe and you can workout on your own without having to rely on a training partner. Resistance bands have always been a vital piece of equipment for rehabilitation programs. They don’t apply pressure in the same way weights do, keeping your joints and muscles safe. Whether you’re recovering from a sports or muscle-related injury, or simply looking or simply looking for a simple, no-fuss resistance program, bands are the way to go.
Adding variety to your workouts
Resistance bands are incredibly versatile. There is an almost unlimited number of exercises that can be safely done with bands. The only limit is your imagination.
