RESISTANCE BANDS FOR PULL UP TRAINING – If you wish to train your upper body you know how good pull ups are for you. The problem is that it’s very hard to increase the amount you’ll be able to do without some help. These resistance bands are the solution. Do as many pull ups as you’ll be able to without the band first. When you’ll be able to’t do any more add another thin band or use just one thicker band and squeeze out your last few reps. Do this regularly and you can be stringing together multiple pull ups in no time!
RESISTANCE BANDS FOR TRICEPS AND BICEPS – These resistance bands are great for smaller muscle groups like biceps and triceps too. As the bands stretch the resistance increases so as you’re doing biceps or tricep curls your muscles are actually getting taxed the most at the end of the exercise which is actually much superior to using traditional dumbbells.
RESISTANCE BANDS FOR STRETCHING AND MOBILITY – At the same time as many athletes use these resistance bands, the trainers at WOD Nation are increasingly encouraging them to also use them for mobility and stretching. Attach the band to a pull up bar and grab it with one hand At the same time as leaning back to give the shoulders a great stretch for example. There are lots of resistance band mobility videos on our WOD Nation Gear website.
