Resistance Bands are an extremely versatile training tool. Perfect for using on the move, in the gym or even at home.
Ideal for strength, hypertrophy, endurance training and recovery. With every set of 4 resistance bands you get a handy carry bag.
We love using our resistance bands for adding extra difficulty onto our grip tool lifts. They are great for providing time under tension, improving your focused and support grip.
The Resistance Bands
There are 4 different bands to choose from, each band providing different benefits.
Red - The red resistance band has a diameter of 0.5", this provides a resistance between 7-16kg. Ideal for warming up, using as a cooldown or recovering from an injury.
Black - The black resistance band has a diameter of 0.9", this provides a noticably tougher stretch compared to the red and can be used for a great workout. With the resistance provided between 11-30kg it's ideal for all round training.
Purple - Moving up to our second highest resistance band, the purple band has a diameter of 1.3". Perfect for strength training and some assisted stretching, the purple band provides a resistance of between 16-39kg.
Green - Currently our toughest resistance band, providing a meaty 25-57kg of resistance. The 1.7" diameter is certainly intimidating at first glance. Perfect for adding extra weight to your training or for assisted pull ups.
Using Your Resistance Bands
There are many different ways you can use reistance bands, let's look into some ways you can mix up your training.
As mentioned above, we love using resistance bands for adding time under tension onto our lifts. The way we do this is by
- Hook the band onto your feet / rack
- Attach the grip tool using a carabiner
- Lift as normal, try to hold at the top or overextend the lift
By holding at the top of the lift, this provides constant tension, really helping to improve your support grip. It's a very effective way to mix up your training and keep it feeling fresh.
Obviously there are a variety of stretches you can perform to warm up, some basic ones include:
- Shoulder circles
- Face pulls
- Lateral raises
- Side bends
We recently wrote our Top 5 Best Resistance Band Exercises For Big Arms which breaks down some of our favourite exercises for building muscle and arm size.
The key really is just keep the repetitions high and focus on the squeeze.
By adding the tougher resistance bands into your routine you can add some extra weight onto your lifts, especially at the top. We often use bands to perform holds for time and obviously our favorite, wrist curls.
Manufactured from high quality latex, our resistance bands are durable, stretchy and lightweight.
