Band workouts and exercises are a series of resistance exercises that are great for your core and posture. The best part of bands is their portability. You can easily travel with them, for example on a road trip, airplane, or in a hotel room. Bands are the best way to workout while traveling. They are also inexpensive, easy to use, and store.
Research suggests that bands provide several benefits over free weights including more functional strength, variable resistance, resistance in multiple directions, better injury prevention, greater ability to change muscle emphasis during exercises, greater muscle power development and constant tension during reps. Because of their variable resistance, they will almost always engage your core.
They are useful for powerlifting, bodybuilding, weightlifting, crossfit, HIIT (high intensity interval training), weight loss and fat burning. Use them to augment your other workouts such as body weight, barbell or dumbbell; ask your personal trainer how it can help you with your physique and develop those abs or six pack you always wanted. You can do them at home or at the gym to build muscle and get strong, burn fat and lose weight. Band exercises are also great for joint mobility, stability and flexibility especially at your knees, hips, back, and shoulders.
