Resistance bands are another form of strength training that can be easily added to your routine. They are easy to transport, can be used with similar form to free weights and can be an utilized to aid in rehabbing injuries when free weights can’t be used. Bands provide resistance in a different way than free weights would as they have the most tension at the end of the movement and minimal tension at the start.

Resistance bands, like free weights, come in different “weights” but unlike free weights their weight is expressed through the tension of the band as opposed to solely in pounds. You can easily tell the difference in “weight” of the resistance band by attempting to pull them apart the one that is harder to pull apart will be the heavier of the two bands. Also, at The Sports Center if you walk upstairs into the group exercise room we have the bands labeled with their weight ranges for your convenience.

Stop at the front desk and ask to speak to a personal trainer if you have any questions.
