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.

6 YOU CAN GET YOURS FOR FREE…  Yes, really!  Just click here and help cover the small shipping fee and they’ll deliver one right to your doorstep!  PLUS, you’ll receive several additional free bonuses as well, including The Mini-Band Circuit Burnout 30 Day At-Home Workout Program!

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!

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
