Top 10 Benefits of Using Resistance Exercise Bands
1. ADAPT EASILY FOR MULTIPLE FITNESS LEVELS… Resistance bands come in multiple resistance levels, usually light, medium or heavy. You can further adjust the amount of resistance during exercise just by giving more or less slack on the band, as well as by combining multiple resistance bands to increase the challenge.
2. MODIFY FAMILIAR EXERCISES… Resistance band exercises are often based on familiar strength-training moves. For example, if you stand on one end of the cord and curl your arm up while holding the other end, you’ve replaced your standard dumbbell bicep curl.
Or you can simply press play on our free workout videos on the community site and follow along for awesome results!
3. EXERCISE YOUR WHOLE BODY… Many resistance band kits come with suggested exercises for nearly every major muscle group in your body. Stepping on one end of a resistance band or looping it around a stationary object, for example, opens up many exercise possibilities.
4. SAVE ON STORAGE SPACE… When you don’t have a lot of room for a home gym, resistance bands are a great option that store in very little space. You can hang them on a hook after you exercise, or coil them up to store in a box or drawer.
5. EXERCISE ON THE ROAD… Because they are so small and portable, resistance bands are a great way to take your workout with you when you travel. There are many resistance band exercises that can easily be done in the small space of a hotel room.

7. ADD VARIETY TO YOUR WORKOUTS… Over time, your muscles adapt to any new exercise routine. It’s a good idea to mix it up by cross training with free weights, machines and resistance band exercises. Each will work your muscles in a slightly different way. If you follow the free workout videos on our community site, every routine is different so you’ll never get bored or stuck in a plateau!
8. EXERCISE SAFELY, EVEN WHEN ALONE… Resistance bands offer strength-training without the risk of dropping a heavy weight on your foot or crushing your ﬁngers between weight plates. That makes them ideal for working out when you don’t have a personal trainer or exercise partner to spot you.
9. COMBINE WITH OTHER EXERCISE EQUIPMENT… While resistance bands work great on their own, they can also be combined with other exercise equipment. Performing bicep curls with both a resistance band and a dumbbell will give you the combined benefits of each type of equipment. That’s what we do in the free workout videos on our community site!
10. GET AN EFFECTIVE WORKOUT… Although there are differences between free weight and resistance band exercises, both are effective. Picture the arc motion your arm makes while doing a bicep curl. Free weights will feel heaviest at the beginning of that arc, while resistance bands make your muscles work harder at the end of the arc (when the band is most taut). Either way, your body is moving against resistance, and that will give your muscles an effective workout.
Have a great weekend!

Thankful Thursday Today!
No bridge to play tomorrow, so I’m headed ‘down the hill’ to Bowness today! I captured my ride and a few pictures along the way.
Playing Bridge was fun! Now I ride along the Bow River Pathway toward downtown to meet Caryl for dinner before she goes to Toastmasters; then I head home on the C-train! I captured that ride as well.
Chow for now!
