Get this resistance band for your workout. Resistance bands aren't as imposing as heavy plates, and they lack the appeal of clanking iron, yet they're a great addition to any workout.

The bands challenge your muscles by creating resistance in multiple directions. You must stabilize against this resistance to maintain the correct movement pattern for each exercise. The result is increased strength in the targeted muscle group. As an added bonus, stabilizer and support muscles, which are often neglected during traditional training, are also strengthened.

No Gym Necessary
Resistance bands are small and compact enough to fit almost anywhere, making them easy to transport. Plus, the bands are extremely cheap. You can use them to create an effective workout at home, in school or at the gym.

Full-Body Work
Your entire body can get a workout with resistance band exercises. Using the bands forces your body to maintain stability throughout an entire movement. This engages multiple muscles simultaneously, so your entire body gets a workout in a short period of time. For example, wrap a resistance band around a pole and perform Resistance Band Chest Presses. Or stand on a band for Resistance Band Squats.

Versatility
Resistance bands are one of the more versatile pieces of workout accessories because the resistance can easily be adjusted. For a harder workout, use a thicker band, add more bands or simply stretch the band more. Perform the same exercise for strength with a heavy band or for endurance and conditioning with a light band. For sport-specific exercises, perform movements at game-time speeds.

Reduced Injuries
Resistance band training is low-impact and easy on the joints. For in-season athletes, who are already taking a beating from competition, this type of training tool is perfect for maintaining strength. Also, increased stabilizer muscle strength protects joints and keeps them pain-free.

Substitute some of your standard exercises with their resistance band counterparts to achieve your strength and appearance goals. Perform each exercise for three sets of 10 reps.
