Resistance band exercises

Some would say that exercising and leading a healthy life in general is easy, but that is not the case. Even if you start with some sort of a program, it is not easy to stick to it as long as necessary. People get bored easily with everything, especially if the results are not showing from the start. We are not easily pleased and we are looking for fun and joy in everything, even though some things are there to help us and not to entertain us.


Many people will say that they cannot start with exercising simply because they lack time and space. Not having enough time is understandable to some point, but how come we always manage to find the time when something serious happens to our health. As for the space, you do not need weights and working stations in a gym to perfect your body. All you need is dedication and some common sense. Workout at home is an excellent solution for most of the working people and for those who won't or cannot afford going to the gym.

As for the type of a workout, resistance band exercises are an excellent choice. Resistance band is very small (comparing to weights) and fairly cheap, especially the beginner's band. Space required for resistance band exercising is very small, you do not need more space than for push ups, ab workouts etc. Exercising with the resistance band is all about using arms. Still, almost all muscle groups can be developed with this instrument and all you need is a bit of imagination. Back muscles, abs, legs, all those muscles can be bulked up with several simple exercises based on the resistance created with a band. Later on, new resistance band should be acquired, with increased resistance, for obtaining better results.


There are not hundreds of forms that can be performed with resistance band, but there are few dozens that, if performed correctly, can create a well-developed body. Combined with regular exercises such as push ups for example, this can turn into a very hard training session, the one that burns a lot of calories and increases muscle mass.

You cannot expect from resistance band exercises to bulk up like a bodybuilder. Really big weights and supplements are needed in order for maximum stimulation of muscle cell growth, and that is not what the resistance band is all about. It is all about having a strong and fit body, which, if combined with a balanced and a healthy diet, is an excellent pathway for living a long and productive life.
