RESISTANCE BANDS FOR PULL UP TRAINING – If you want 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 can do without some help. These resistance bands are the solution. Do as many pull ups as you can without the band first. When you can’t do any more add another thin band or use just one thicker band and squeeze out your last few reps. Do this on a regular basis and you’ll 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 – While 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 while leaning back to give the shoulders a great stretch for example. There are many resistance band mobility videos on our WOD Nation Gear website.
RESISTANCE BANDS FOR STAYING IN SHAPE WHILE TRAVELING – Believe it or not if you just stick one or two resistance bands along with a WOD Nation jump rope in your suitcase before you leave on a business trip or vacation and you’ll have everything you need to stay in great shape even if there isn’t a CrossFit box or gym where you’re staying!
