Strength. If you are thinking till now that weights
like dumbbells or kettlebells are the only solution for your strength training
workouts, then think again. Put your dumbbells aside and take resistance
bands. This
portable piece of gym gear is even more effective in building strength
and balance. This handy equipment allows you to work in
full range of motion; therefore training with them will
target muscles of those areas that you can miss with weights. Resistance bands are in general are elastic
stretchable bands that can be used for muscle building, strength training
and some physical therapies also. Normally, they are made up of a rubber band
about 10 to 15 inches long. Some come with handles at each end which can
be gripped with your hands or placed at the end of your feet,
although there are some models without handles. Why use Resistance Bands? This stretchy piece of fabric adds an entirely
new level of challenge to your workout, putting your muscles to good
work by adding that extra bit of resistance. The utilization of resistance bands is often
a go-to for coaches trying to improve their athlete’s movement velocity,
strength, force production, and all around power output. Bands are great for adding an additional
challenge in compound movements such as the squat, bench press,
and sometimes deadlift. It teaches your body to stabilize itself on
demand, practicing the art of body control. This will play into other workouts you do,
as you will notice that you become far more composed. The constant tension it creates adds completely
new tests to your muscles and the body, rapidly improving its
stamina. Using the band alongside other tools such
as the dumbbell, kettlebell, or medicine ball gives your body more resistant
to work against. So, if
you’re feeling like it’s getting a little too easy, adding a resistance band
will help regain some challenge to your workout. The added resistance from the band increases
tension through both the eccentric and concentric portion of lifts
but accentuates in the completion of the concentric portion of movements. This in return,
will require athletes to recruit increased musculature/motor neurons
normal weight may not facilitate. Common Tips for Resistance Band Training. 1. With all fitness exercises, posture and body
alignment is critical. Keep the shoulders and hips aligned, tighten
your abs, and relax the knees. Always maintain a natural spinal curve. 2. Never forget proper warm-up and cool-down
sessions. 3. Control your movements with bands rather than
letting it control you. Perform exercises in slow and controlled manner. Do not let
the band snap. 4. Avoid locking and overextension of joints
while exercising. 5. Don’t hold your breath. Breathe evenly during exercise and
exhale during the more difficult phase of the repetition. 6. Do not use resistance bands in starting. Perform the exercise
without the band until you are comfortable with it, then add
resistance band to increase workout’s intensity. 7. Exercise with a band that allows you to complete
two to three sets of 10 to 15 repetitions with mild fatigue
on the last set. Precautions to take while using Resistance
bands. The two main dangers with Resistance Bands
are breaking of the band or letting go of an end while under tension. The result of both these
actions can cause the end of the band to snap toward you violently and
potentially inflict serious damage. One of the most common injuries is
eye damage. 1. Never release a Resistance Band while under
tension. A release
under tension can cause the band to snap back towards you and
result in injury. 2. Begin all exercises slowly to ensure band
strength. 3. Avoid jerking the band. 4. Always inspect your resistance band before
using it. Look for
signs of wear and tear, like cracks or holes in the latex and
weakness around the handle. Once you see signs of weakness, it
is time to throw it out. 5. Make sure the band is secured safely to its
anchor when using it. Don’t use doorknobs, for example. 6. Never stretch a Resistance Band over 2.5 times
their length. 7. Do not store your Resistance Band in moist,
hot, or sunlight areas. 8. Resistance Bands are not toys and should never
be used for any activity other than the specific exercises
they were designed for. Resistance bands are a training modality that
novice and experienced lifters can utilize to increase their strength,
power, and force production. They should be used sparingly due to their
taxing nature on the nervous system. If you’re new to banded (accommodated resistance)
training, then we’d highly recommend seeking out a coach,
or a medium that provides in-depth descriptions of the training
adaptation you desire. If you’ve liked the video give it a thumb
