8 Trainers Share Their Favorite Resistance Band Exercises

I am currently going through physical therapy to strengthen the muscles around my knee. Bands give great resistance and you can adjust the amount simply by shortening or lengthening the band/tube.
Thanks but I hate the bands!
Just what I needed! I'm about to travel abroad for two months, so won't be able to do my usual workout at the gym, and can't carry along heavy dumbbells. Hope the resistance band workouts will help keep me in shape until I get back to my regular routine!
Some men may laugh at these, but I love them for when I travel out of town, about every other month. I can use them up in my room and get in a quick workout in the mornings or use them when I'm bored at night.
Keep the bands away from your face. With or without handles they can snap back and hurt you.
Some of these are mire complicated than the ones I do. I stick to basics but might try a couple.
Bought myself s band. WoiHoo
Better uses than I have been doing.
Very good exercises especially when we travel. Light and easy to carry.
Thanks; I have these things but needed more ideas on how to use them. The adductor bridge exercise is one my PT told me to do to strengthen the muscles around my knees.
i will have to try these
I have resistance bands the flat ones I needed to read this to find ways to use them Thank you for the useful information.
I mainly use my bands when travelling. These exercises are great!
