13 Benefits of Resistance Bands
Resistance bands offer you many training benefits
1 - Easy to adapt
They suit all fitness levels from beginner home users to professional athletes, and they're easy to adapt into your training.
2 - Freedom of movement
Resistance bands provide freedom of movement in all directions and the widest range of motion, too.
3 - Resistance in all directions
With bands, you have to train against resistance in all directions, not only against gravity like dumbbells.
4 - Adjustability on the go
You can adjust the amount of resistance during your workout simply by stepping further from your bands' anchor point.
5 - Affordable equipment
They are one of the cheapest ways to train your muscles.
6 - High portability & easy storage
Bands are lightweight and compact; you can take them with you in your suitcase when you travel, and store them in a small bag at home.
7 - Easy to target any muscles
You can target specific muscles, neglected muscles or entire muscle groups with resistance band exercises.
8 - Sport specific use
You can mimic real sport movements with additional resistance, like kicking, punching, or twisting. This way you can improve your skills in your sports.
9 - Increased coordination
During resistance band training you have to stabilize and balance your body parts involving more muscles in your workout. This improves your overall coordination of muscles.
10 - Versatile training
Your body is adaptable: if you do the same exercises over and over, your body will no longer be challenged, it won't gain or develop. You can vary your workout with resistance bands: ResisTrack gives you 50+ resistance band exercises and 10+ downloadable workouts.11 - Injury prevention
You can use resistance bands for injury prevention by training isolated muscles which will help surrounding muscles in sporting actions.
12 - Recovery tool
Resistance bands are a superb tool to strengthen muscles after injury; they will help with the recovery in a gentle but effective way.
13 - No more cheating
Dumbbell users often cheat by lifting the weight with momentum; you can't do this with resistance bands because of their constant resistance, so you have to use your muscles all the time.
