How to Use Resistance Bands

Exercise bands and tubes are made out of elastic. As you stretch out the bands, you will be met with more resistance the farther you stretch them. This resistance allows you to safely tone your muscles. Because the resistance can be applied in any direction whether up or down, you do not need to rely on gravity like with free weights.

An example of how this principle works can be seen with a rubber band. Take the rubber band with both hands. If you keep one hand stationary while the other pulls away you will feel the resistance being applied.

Try moving your hand away to the side, diagonal, up, down, or in any other direction and you will still feel resistance. You can buy  Resistance Bands by visiting www.amonax.com/.

As your hands move farther apart, your muscles have to work harder to maintain their distance. This is how the resistance tubing and bands work, only on a larger scale.

Exercise bands and tubes are also great for any type of lifestyle whether you are heavily involved in sports or retired and want to get into shape.
