Benefits of Using Exercise Straps
Resistance leg bands have lots of different uses and benefits! You can use them in your at-home workouts, at the gym, during pilates, yoga, stretching or even physical therapy. Use them for a stretch break at work, or use them in your workout to safely target muscle groups. They are thin and super easily to pack, so you can bring them with you anywhere!
During workouts, using exercise straps can help prevent injury and assist in activating muscles better. Because they support your muscles and joints while you move and are made of a durable material, they are safe for a variety of ages, including older age groups. Weights can be difficult or unsafe for adults older than 60 to begin working with; resistance bands are a safe alternative that can help build bone strength and help prevent osteoporosis.
These flat resistance bands help with strength training and allow you to activate your core better. They are especially popular for use as leg bands to train during leg and glute workouts. Use this inexpensive tool to easily and safely improve your workouts!
Resistance bands offer the same muscle activity as weights do, but are safer to use and less likely to cause injury. For those with existing injuries or joint pain, resistance bands can be a safer and easier option than using weights. Resistance leg bands can also be used for exercises involving laying on the floor or horizontal positions, which can prove difficult to do with weights.
Durable, Multi-Use Resistance Leg Bands
No matter what you choose to use them for, these resistance bands will offer great support thanks to the 5 different resistance options. Made of a skin-friendly natural latex, they are durable and offer a great stretchability. Choose from 3 different color sets; such as pink, purple, or multi-color!
Depending on the resistance level you choose, the “weight” equivalence will also increase with each level. Each band is indicated with a different color as well as symbols printed on the bands. Here are the corresponding weight amounts to each resistance level band:
- Level 1 (X-Light): 5 – 10 lbs
- Level 2 (Light): 10 – 15 lbs
- Level 3 (Medium): 15 – 20 lbs
- Level 4 (Heavy): 20 – 30 lbs
- Level 5 (X-Heavy): 30 – 40 lbs
Start with lower resistance and work your way up; or use the desired resistance needed for each different muscle group workout. Levels 1 and 2 are perfect for beginner use. Get started and don’t forget to stretch!
