What is an Exercise Band?

Exercise band or resistance band is any rubber tubing or flat band device used for strength training. For strength training, a resistive force which is greater than normal has to be applied to the body. This force can be provided by machines, free weights or rubber resistance. The advantages of using exercise bands include portability, ability to vary the tension, and performing exercises that cannot be done with free weights. Typically, exercise bands are made of high-quality rubber that is abrasive and tear resistant. If proper care is taken and all guidelines are followed, the bands should last from 6 months to a few years under normal home use.

Advantage of using Exercise Bands / Resistance Bands

  • Portability - Exercise Bands can be easily packed in a suitcase for travel and you can do exercises in the car or in your hotel room.
  • Increase Body Coordination - Because of variable tension during workout, you have to stabilize your body to avoid injuries which helps with body coordination and balance.
  • Add variety - Resistance bands allow you to change your positioning in multiple ways. This changes how your body works and how an exercise feels.
  • Affordability - Exercise Bands are usually cheaper than other exercise equipment. The price depends on the quality, type and weight capacity of the resistance band.
  • Great for all fitness levels - Exercise Bands can be great for beginners as well as advanced exercisers. They can be used for basic moves or to add intensity to traditional moves.

Exercise Bands Buying Tips

There are a variety of resistance bands available. Here are a few tips for buying bands:
  • Buy a variety of bands - Most exercise bands are color-coded according to tension level. It's best to have bands with at least three tension levels i.e. light, medium and heavy since different muscle groups will require different levels of resistance.
  • Buy comfortable bands - Try to buy exercise bands which come with comfortable padded handles and make sure you handles are not interchangeable because interchangeable handles require you to take them off and on to use different bands which can be bothersome and if the handles are damaged, then all the bands become useless.
  • Buy accessories - One of the key advantages of using resistance bands is having different ways to attach them. If you have a sturdy pole or rail in your house to wrap the band around for exercises, you may not need more exercise equipment. However, if you don't, you may want a door attachment. You can also buy ankle cuffs, different handles and other accessories.
  • Keep it simple - There's a wide variety of bands available like figure 8's, double bands, circular bands, etc. If you're just getting started, stick with your basic long tube with handles. Once you figure out how to use it, you may want to buy other types later for variety.
