Power Bands, also known as resistance bands, are a versatile tool for different workouts. Thanks to their different resistances, you can make use of the bands in countless ways:
- The bands can be used as assistance when doing pull ups or chin ups. During these, the bands can support you when you pull yourself upwards.
- With the Power Bands you can change the resistance profile of exercises such as squats or the bench press. This gives you the opportunity to increase your range of motion and train even more effectively.
- Bands can also be a great alternative for exercises with a bad resistance profile. For example, during dumbbell biceps curls which do not provide any tension at the bottom part of the movement.
- Bands can also be used to substitute whole movements. Lateral raises, rows, flys or leg exercises can be substituted by bands for example.
- Lastly, bands can be used for stretching
