Why does the exercise band work?
Because resistance bands are incredibly simple, but they’re also extremely effective at working your muscles. Additionally, resistance-band training can help you boost stamina, flexibility, range of motion and more.
Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, resistance bands are for you. They come in a variety of resistances, including light, medium and heavy, and you can further adjust the intensity of your resistance-band workouts by giving the band more or less slack. You can even use multiple bands at once to increase the challenge.
- Secure the band low behind you and hold the handles with your hands behind your head, palms facing each other, elbows bent at 90 degree and upper arms straight up.
- Pull the handles up by extending your arms completely and allow them to slowly return after a short pause.
- Keep your upper arms immobile throughout.
