What Are Resistance Bands? | Booty Fit

April 10, 2019

Whether you're new to the fitness scene or a seasoned gym-goer, resistance bands are the perfect addition to your workout routine.

However, resistance bands have only recently made their way into gym bags. Resistance bands were originally created to aid in muscle and joint rehabilitation as they are known to help build joint stability. Over time, their potential grew and now there are dozens of exercises involving resistance bands.

Peach Fit resistance bands can strengthen, tone and tighten all those hard to reach muscles, as well as be the go-to piece of equipment in your booty building journey.

Versatile and effective, resistance bands are typically sold as a set with coloured bands varying in resistance. Those wishing to perform light exercises with minimal resistance are recommended to use the extra light or light band. Those wishing to go all in are recommended to use maximum resistance with the heavy or extra heavy band.

Peach Fit resistance bands are popular with frequent travelers who wish to stay on track with their fitness goals during their holidays. Not only are they lightweight but compact which makes them much easier to pack in your checked baggage, or, if you've bought too many souvenirs, in your carry-on!

We haven't even gotten to the best part about resistance bands - they are super affordable! Those wishing to up their fitness game without emptying their wallets on expensive equipment or gym memberships can rejoice at the affordability of Peach Fit resistance bands.

While resistance bands are easy to incorporate into a routine, it's important to know which exercises require which bands. Using the incorrect band during an exercise can strain your muscles and joints, thus impeding your fitness journey. In order to avoid overstressing your muscles and joints, it's best to work your way up from extra light to extra heavy, especially if you're a beginner.

Now, if you happen to be more of a yogi, you can still incorporate resistance bands into your routine. Peach Fit bands can revamp your yoga routine as they provide additional support during stretches while simultaneously strengthing upper and lower body muscles. Check out these 5 ways to incorporate resistance bands into your yoga routine.

If you still aren't convinced that you need resistance bands in your routine, the Australian Government Department of Health suggests strength training at least twice a week to maintain vitality. Some form of physical activity is recommended every day but at least 2 days of the week should be dedicated solely to strength training.

So, are you convinced now?
