I just came across these Resistance Bands on Amazon which have been reduced from £25.99 to £7.00. I haven’t tried them out myself, but it does seem a bargain compared to known brands like Rubberbanditz.
These things are great for Crossfit / weightlifting and MMA. I throw them in my bag when I go on holiday and keep some at home for when I want to work out without the need for lots of weights. They are a great piece of kit which can be used anywhere.
The Resistance Band ensures that there is resistance throughout the exercise which you perform – some free weight movements don’t really allow this, so it can be beneficial to balance some free weight work outs with resistant workouts. There are loads of work out guides on the internet and really, your imagination is the limit.
If you try them out please leave a comment below letting us know how they are!
