Exercise Bands - A Perfect Home Gym Equipment?
Exercise bands are certainly less impressive than the last super heavy machine you see at the gyms. They don't have an exceptional design, multi function, maximum user weight of 500 pounds and the latest discovery for muscle building and fat loss. And sorry, they don't range from $599 and $3,679. Nope.
Exercise bands are just Resistance bands and provide just that: RESISTANCE. The critical factor that will determine if your exercises are challenging enough. If you challenge your body enough, it will trigger a response that depends on what you are training for, muscle gains or fat loss.
Fact is, you don't need expensive machines to train and sculpt your body. You can have a total body workout as well as training specific muscle groups with fitness bands. There are absolutely no limit to the amount of exercises you can perform as well as the results you can get.
Thanks to their versatility you can attack muscles on every angle, and even work out the little stabilisation muscles that are so important to strenghten to prevent injuries. You want to become stronger or leaner, improve your overall health, mobility and flexibility, increase the size of your biceps or reduce your waist size, exercise bands are the way to go.
Don't ruin yourself. Spend as little as $50 and own a complete home gym system that you can keep with you everywhere you go and perform literally hundreds of exercises.
Resistance bands don't need a lot of room. If you want to train at home, you won't need a lot of space for storage, they'll nicely fit in their bag (okay or under your bed), ready for another round when you need to train. And they will come with you on vacation if you want to keep your results.
They usually come with a door anchor, which allow you to attach the resistance band at any height you want and train any muscle on any angle. It's not always necessary and whatever you want to achieve, you can. Biceps, abs, back, thighs, chest... you name it.
One last thing to add, most resistance bands come with a lifetime warranty. How's that for a great deal!? Not sure many machines compare with that kind of guarantee.
