Resistance Bands - A Practical Guide

Resistance Bands - A Practical Guide

9th Mar 2022

Resistance bands are a convenient, popular and effective way of exercising. These bands are able to work multiple muscles in the body, and are quickly becoming an essential part of workout routines for many.

Resistance bands are essentially large elastic bands that a person can use to exercise. Typical exercises involving resistance bands include bicep curls, squats, chest presses and leg presses among many others. All muscle groups can be targeted with these bands.

These bands are able to complement other exercises, whether this be weight training, yoga or cardio work on exercise mats.

Benefits of resistance bands

Resistance bands can help to improve strength and flexibility. Both strength and flexibility are crucial qualities to have, and can help us in our everyday lives.

Resistance bands can be great for both active individuals and those with limited mobility. For anyone rehabilitating after an injury or accident, they can offer a gentle route back into full training.

For those that do have limited mobility, resistance bands offer an excellent way of training, as many exercises using these bands can be done in a sedentary position.


Who would the typical customer be?

Resistance bands are an excellent choice for a range of people:

  • For those that want to gain muscle: Resistance bands offer an excellent range of exercises that can offer standalone results, or complement gains from other exercise methods.
  • People hoping to lose weight: A 2019 study found that 38% of UK adults are trying to actively lose weight [1]. This figure is likely to have risen since then, due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Resistance bands can help to burn calories. When combined with a healthy lifestyle, resistance bands can become an easy way to assist in weight loss efforts.
  • Rehabilitation: For anyone rehabilitating from a surgery or injury, resistance bands can provide a low-intensity method of regaining fitness and strength.
