Best Resistance Bands Buying Guide

 

Resistance bands have become quite popular, and for good reason. They are inexpensive and easy to use, unlike many pieces of exercise equipment. It's easy to look at the complicated machines in many gyms and be intimidated. However, resistance bands are easily incorporated into most workout routines. Plus, they are much more portable than most pieces of exercise equipment. This means that you can work out with resistance bands in your own home or take them to the gym as a component of a larger exercise plan. If you've read to this point, you're probably strongly considering getting some and integrating them into your next workout. Keep reading to learn more about getting the best resistance bands for you!

Features to Look for in Resistance Bands

 

Believe it or not, not all resistance bands are the same! Higher-quality bands often offer several important features that are missing in the lower-quality ones. Note here that price does not necessarily equal quality. There are a few important features to look for when you're buying a set of resistance bands: carrying cases, handles and ankle straps, instructional materials, color coding, and durability.

 

First of all, carrying bag is important to have when you are using multiple resistance bands for a full workout. Without a carrying bag, resistance bands can easily become misplaced or tangled. Nothing is going to ruin the groove of your routine more than having to sit down and unwind your straps.

 

Secondly, handles and ankle straps are important for optimal ease of use. When resistance bands first started getting popular, the bands often did not have handles or ankle straps, making them much more difficult to use. But even if that ease of use isn't an issue for you, take into consideration that there are many popular resistance-band exercises that can only be performed with ankle straps or handles.

 

Another accessory to look for? Instructional materials. Many manufacturers will include a pamphlet describing the most popular exercises. Some manufacturers will even produce instructional videos and put them up on the Internet for anyone who is just getting started on their resistance workouts.

 

Next, you want to make sure that you get a color-coded set. The color coding will allow you to quickly and easily tell the different bands apart when you are working out. This will ensure that you know which band you need for each specific exercise, as bands with different levels of resistance should be different colors.

 

Finally, you should always consider durability. Weak straps are prone to snapping, which could cause an injury. Check that the straps you're interested in are made of sturdier materials. Checking out customer reviews is one great way to see others' experiences with the durability of the set you're interested in.

 

When you're getting resistance bands, make sure that they have all of the features listed above for optimal effectiveness and ease of use.

 

Benefits of Resistance Bands

 

Resistance bands have multiple benefits when they are compared to traditional workout equipment, such as dumbbells or exercise machines. They are much cheaper than many alternatives, for one. They are also quite portable, which allows you to take them with you anywhere. You can't exactly do that with heavy machines or weights. Resistance bands are also incredibly versatile, allowing you to create your own routines or incorporating them into old favorites. Finally, these bands can be simple to use, allowing varying degrees of resistance for people of most fitness levels.    

 

Inexpensive

Exercise equipment and premium gym memberships are known for being expensive. Exercise machines for home gyms particularly can run well into the thousands of dollars. Even a set of high-quality dumbbells can cost a pretty penny. But resistance straps? It's easy to buy a set for $10 to $20 on Amazon. Keep in mind that this the price for a set of a half-dozen (or more) bands, not for a single band.

 

Portability

Resistance bands, because of their light weight and relatively small size, are much more portable than other types of exercise equipment. You can take them with you when you travel, which is hard to do with weights, unless you only take very small ones. The portability of these bands even allows you to take them to different rooms of your house quite easily. For example, you can take your resistance bands and work out outside if the weather is good. If it's not, you can take your bands to the living room and work out in front of the TV. The possibilities are endless!

 

Versatility

Another unique benefit of these strands is their versatility. There are hundreds of exercises that you can do with a good set! Their light weight and flexibility ensure that they can be used in exercises that would not otherwise be possible.

Easy to Use

Possibly the most important benefit of working out with resistance bands—instead of other exercise equipment—is simply how easy they are to use. Dumbbells look easy to use, but using them properly can be difficult, especially without the supervision of a personal trainer. As previously mentioned, exercise machines are notorious for being difficult to use, and often only work out a small group of muscles. Resistance straps, on the other hand, can be picked up and used in a workout right away.

 

How You Can Use Resistance Bands in Your Workout

 

There are so many effective exercises that can can incorporate resistance bands that they can't all be listed in this article. So, we'll settle for discussing some of the most popular ones, as well as simple instructions for performing them. Be sure to always consult with a physician before taking up any new exercise routines.

 

Bicep Curls

 

First, stand with your feet a little less than shoulder width apart. Next, take each of the resistance band's handles in your hands with your arms hanging at your sides. Pull your arms up to your shoulders by bending at the elbow. You should be able to feel your bicep muscles (at the front of your arms) contract. Lower your arms back down slowly, until they are straight down by your sides. Keep your back straightened the whole time, and resist the urge to swing your arms and get help from the momentum. Repeat roughly 12 to 15 times in a set. You may want to start this exercise with a band that offers a lower level of resistance, and move up as you get stronger.

 

Bent-Over Row

 

This simple exercise is great for strengthening your back muscles. Start by standing over the middle of the band with your feet roughly shoulder width apart. Bend a little at the knees and bend over at the waist. Make sure to keep your hips back when you bend over and to keep your back straight. Take a handle in each hand, with your hands facing your legs. Pull the band up toward your hips with each hand, making sure to keep your elbows bent. As you pull upwards, squeeze your shoulder blades together so that your elbows come together at about 90 degrees. Lower your hands to the starting position and repeat 10 to 12 times.

 

Rear-Delt Fly

 

This exercise is a little more challenging, and it might be best for people who are already in pretty good shape. This exercise starts from a sitting position, preferably when you're sitting at the edge of a bench or a chair. Place your feet over the center of the band. Cross the band at knee height, with your palms inward. Bend from the waist with your back straight and raise your arms until they're straight out. Keep going until the band reaches shoulder height. Lower back to the starting position and repeat 10 or 12 times.

 

Front Squat

 

Stand on the band with your feet a little wider than your shoulders. Take a handle in each hand and pull the band up to shoulder height. Squat low, keeping your back straight the whole time. Rise slowly back up to the starting position. Repeat 8 to 12 times.

 

Leg Extension

 

This is another challenging exercise, a leg extension move that targets the quads. First, secure a loop band over a secure support, such as an incline bench. Loop the other end around your ankle with the band positioned behind you. Step away from the support to draw the band taut and stand with your feet about at wide as your hips. Shift your weight to your right foot and slowly lift your left leg. Extend your leg from the knee until it's straight. Slowly return your leg to the starting position and repeat from 8 to 12 times until you switch to your other leg. 

 

Prone Leg Curl

 

This exercise starts in a prone position, laying on a gym mat. Loop a band around one ankle and secure the other end to a support that you know can hold your weight. Move away from the support until the band is taut. Flex the muscles in your core and hold as you bring your heel as far toward your glutes as you possibly can without hurting yourself. Carefully return your leg to the starting position and perform 8 to 12 reps, then switch legs.

 

Glute Bridge

 

Resistance bands can be very effective for those that want to tone their glutes. There are a number of exercises that use resistance bands to effectively work out the glutes, including the glute bridge. This move starts by tying a resistance band around your thighs, just above the top of the knee. Carefully lie down with your legs out in front of you and your knees bent at 90 degrees. Raise your hips up until your knees, hips, and shoulders all align, making sure to flex and hold your glutes during the maneuver. This exercise should be repeated 15 to 20 times, depending on the limits of your body.

 

Standing Abductor

Someone using resistance bands to do standing abductors

 

The standing abductor exercise begins by looping a band at ankle height around some sort of stable support. Stand with your left side facing the support and the band around your right ankle, which should be the side facing away from the support. Move away from the support until the band is tight. Spread your feet out until they're just past shoulder width. Get into an athletic stance and move the ankle with the loop across your body toward the support. Carefully and slowly pull this ankle back to the starting position. This exercise should be repeated 12 to 15 times before you switch to your other side.

 

Supine Clamshell

 

Loop a band around both legs just above knee height. Carefully lie down on your back with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Pull your knees apart while flexing your glutes for several seconds. Gradually return to your initial position. Repeat this exercise from 10 to 12 times.

 

Ankle Flexion

 

This exercise, also known as the plantar flexion, can be done while sitting, which makes it ideal for non-traditional workout locations. Loop one end of the band around the leg of a table or something similar. Sit down and extend your left leg straight out. Hold that position as you wrap the other end of the loop around your foot. Lean back with your weight supported by your hands and flex your foot downward from the ankle. You should feel a non-painful stretching sensation in your shin. Bring your foot back up as far as possible until your toes point toward your knee. Repeat 9 to 11 times, then switch feet.

 

Assisted Pull Ups

 

Pull ups are hard. To get a little extra help, you can tie the ends of a high-quality band around a pull-up bar. Then, place your hands on the bar (not the band). Depending on the routine you're going for, place either your feet or bent knees into the hanging part of the strap. After that, you can start your pull ups.

 

Final Thoughts

No one workout or fitness routine will work best for everyone. However, many people have found that resistance bands help them perform better. Exercise routines, whether for strength training or weight loss, can all be aided with the use of a high-quality set. Just make sure that 1.) what you buy is sturdy and 2.) that you are properly using the bands. A certified trainer can help you learn how to use them properly, so you can get the best resistance band routine down!
