RESISTANCE BANDS are one of the best investments you can make in your own personal health journey. They are one of the best pieces of equipment you can get to continue to work towards your goals when life gets crazy!
Benefits of Resistance Bands:
Easily Transported so you can do your workout wherever, whenever!
Have TONS of different exercises for a full body burn
Come with different resistances/weights to keep you challenged as you gain strength
LOW impact exercises for all fitness levels so no modifications needed :)
Each exercise is a combination and stability exercise in and of itself due to the nature of resistance
They make CIRCUIT TRAINING even more fun because you can throw in different types of exercises
And no, I don't have a favorite and can pretty much make any type of band work. BUT I do own these and they're pretty cool!
