Why use lifting bands? Lifting bands offer a contrasting method in an exercise program where the weight resistance changes at different points in a lift. Using bands will make the weight increase through the concentric and eccentric portions of a lift that will result in greater speed and acceleration. Each Band is suited towards a particular fitness routine such as speed/agility training, jumping, flexibility, stretching, plyometrics, rehabilitation, and power lifting. These 41" bands are a cost effective and simple way to add intensity to any training routine.
The Very Light and Light are best used for general conditioning, stretching, rehabilitation, jumping, aerobics and for increased resistance towards bicep /tricep exercises. Either band works well for beginners and novice weightlifters. For stronger bench presses and lower body exercises, the Medium and Heavy work well. For obtaining maximum resistance using squats, deadlifts, leg presses and shrugs, the Very Heavy is our top of the line band.
