If you're looking to get in shape, you could go join a gym… or you could just use resistance bands at home. Exercise bands are small, efficient tools that help build muscle and stamina right in the comfort of your living room. Don't let exercise bands' simplicity deceive you — there are dozens of resistance band exercises, each focusing on different muscles. With resistance band training (and other great items from our Training & Recovery page), you can get a whole gym workout with just a few resistance bands.
So, now that we've convinced you that workout bands are the way to go, let's talk about which are the best resistance bands for you (because oh yes, there are many different kinds of exercise bands). It really depends on which resistance band workouts you want to do. If you're new to exercise bands, you might want to spring for a set like the Alliance Workout Bands, which come with resistance bands that have three different levels of resistance. That means you can start out with less resistance and work up, to more heavy duty resistance band workouts. Baby steps, right?
Theraband makes advanced resistance band training tools for all kinds of workouts. In fact, with Theraband products like the CLX 5' Pre-Cut exercise resistance bands, you can do simultaneous upper and lower body work, which makes for extra efficient resistance band exercises (and less time working out!). The best resistance bands are the ones that help you reach your workout goals, and Theraband certainly qualify. And along with Theraband, we also have to give a shout out to Black Mountain Resistance Bands and Gofit resistance bands, because those are awesome, and we can't resist them (get it? Sorry…).
Some exercise bands hook on to doors, for extra resistance, and other resistance bands work exclusively on leg muscles, like the Functional Fitness Mini Loop bands. Really, you can get a resistance bands workout for every muscle in your body, and at any level of difficulty, from 15 lb resistance band to 100 lb exercise resistance bands.
