But what is the best workout with resistance bands?

Many individuals who lift weights usually will tell you about the superiority of weight lifting as the best muscle builder.

While free weights are good, workouts with resistance bands do provide some interesting benefits to building muscle size and fat loss. In recent years resistance bands have received a black eye... they were seen as something only a middle-aged women would use during some aerobic workout with little to NO resistance.

There are some interesting differences in resistance bands that make them an excellent choice for working out... besides the convenience factor.

There are many advantages in using resistance bands:

  1. One of the great advantages is that the resistance is maintained through every part of the exercise. During free weight exercises there is always a point in which there is NO resistance what so ever.
  2. Resistance band training, utilizes both the concentric and eccentric part of the exercise. In this way you have a greater range of motion & more total muscle stimulation. The downside to resistance bands is the limitation of exercises. (This is actually easy to overcome)

SIDE NOTE:


When CHOOSING resistance bands for your workout the most IMPORTANT factor is in deciding which resistance band is appropriate for your strength level. The BETTER resistance bands have the ability to attach many bands to the handle similar to adding weights on a dumbbell. Also, when performing the exercise, the band should be secured in a way so the length is appropriate to give resistance even at the bottom of the exercise. An excellent way to do this is with the use of a door anchor.

Do a proper warm-up and keep to about a one minute rest between sets.

This routine can be custom tailored to fit your schedule and training preferences, changing the sets and number of training days as you please. I would not change the number of repetitions too much as resistance bands aren't as optimal for very low rep sets.
