Resistance bands and power bands: the power of resistance

Small, compact and lightweight. Resistance bands and power bands are part of the select few fitness accessories that are easy to carry around and that can be used to train many muscle groups!

Resistance bands and power bands power bands provide you with endless movement possibilities. They are not dependent on gravity, as are dumbbells and barbells, for example. If you want to add a little weight to a side leg raise, you probably won't be able to do that with a dumbbell or barbell. Simply said, where do you put it? A power band or resistance band is an ideal solution. And to remove a prejudice: power bands and resistance bands are widely used by both women and men.

With resistance bands and power bands you work with resistance, because the band is made of elastic. In addition, you mainly use your own body weight and strength, and give an extra dimension to your workout. Whatever you use the band for – kicking, pushing, pulling or punching, lying or standing, it doesn't matter in terms of resistance. That gives a lot of freedom of movement, because you can easily fold resistance bands and power bands and take them with you in your bag. Try that with a weight plate.
