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!

Do You Have A Purpose? It’s true that in order to live our purpose in this world, we’ve got to have a vision and a plan for achieving our dreams.  We must be tenacious in working toward our goals, and we might occasionally have to sacrifice a little sleep for that dream.  However, our “hustle at any cost” culture has convinced us that this means choosing between success and quality of life (e.g. health, happiness and fulfillment).  This either/or mindset is not just inaccurate — it actually threatens our bottom lines and secretly sabotages success. The stress, exhaustion and decision

Good morning. Shortages or not, we’ve all seen rising prices on store shelves as a sign of inflation.  In some cases, prices have stayed the same, but the size of a package has shrunk.  This is a way to mask higher prices through a process known as shrinkflation.  But there are other ways to note the bite of higher price as well.  One such way?  The loss of amenities. For example, many hotels are now ditching their complimentary breakfasts.  While such food wasn’t necessarily good, it was a way to entice travelers to stay at a low additional cost.  With

Good morning. We’ve noted a few times over the past few months to get that holiday shopping done extra early this year thanks to supply chain disruptions.  But given some of the latest delays and reports from companies reporting earnings this year, the next thing on your holiday shopping list just might be groceries. While we’re not seeing the toilet paper shortage of last year, shortages in chicken, fish sticks, coffee among other food staples appear likely in the coming weeks.  And products such as diapers are seeing high demand right now as well.  Even if those shortages are resolved,

Good morning. The stock market has a number of seasonal patterns to it.  While it’s well-known that stocks tend to rally into the end of the year, in what’s known as the “Santa Claus” rally, that rally tends to start earlier than many expect.  This year, the start date is likely the first day of November, less than two weeks away. Why?  Because right now we’re in the midst of earnings season, when company insiders are locked out from buying or selling shares.  Companies are also in a lockout period for share buybacks.  And it’s those buybacks that have been

Good morning. Bull markets end on euphoria, but not until they’ve gone on far longer than many expect.  That seems to be the case in the commodity markets right now.  While traders are still considering that the price of a barrel of oil may hit $100, some are starting to bet that will just be a stop along the way to $200 per barrel, which would be a new all-time high for the commodity. And thanks to the recent uranium rally, a new fund that will hold physical uranium has been announced to take advantage of that move.  The announcement
