When it comes to working out, many people turn to cardio first. While cardiovascular activity IS an effective way to burn calories, a good workout combines both cardio exercise and strength training. One of the most effective ways to strength train safely, regardless of your current fitness level, is adding resistance bands to your routine.

Getting Started with Resistance Bands
Use these tips to get the most of out your workout with resistance bands:

  • Don’t push your body too hard. Always choose bands with the correct “load,” or resistance, for your fitness level.
  • For maximum results, concentrate on your posture. Resistance bands will help you exercise a specific group of muscles, but practicing good posture will keep your core strong.
  • An effective strength training program, utilizing resistance bands, can be safely undertaken up to three days a week for many adults.
  • Stretch and warm up for a few minutes before beginning any exercise.
  • Do you travel frequently? Pack resistance bands into your suitcase, and easily maintain your fitness routine, even on the road!
  • Get started with these examples of resistance band exercises or this “total body sculpting resistance band workout”.

Why Strength Training?
Cardio exercise involves getting your heart rate up, burning calories through increased metabolism, and shedding fat. By using resistance bands, you can achieve many of the same results that come from cardio exercise, while also helping your body build muscle mass and increase bone strength.

Other benefits of strength training with resistance bands include:

  • Increase muscle mass
  • Decrease risk of numerous diseases and chronic conditions
  • Better balance
  • Increase agility and control
  • Improve posture
  • Increase metabolism
  • Improve sleep
  • Weight loss
  • Burn fat
  • Increase bone strength
  • Safe for all fitness levels
