Bands in this listing can be purchased individually or as a set.
Resistance bands are an essential tool for most athletes and fitness enthusiasts. They are multi functional and can be utilised by most athletes to improve recovery, flexibility, mobility, and power. The smaller resistance bands are great for mobility (e.g. Rotator Cuff work), stretching, warming up and adding a small amount of resistance to exercises (e.g. Standing Crab Walk).
The stronger resistance bands can be used for various purposes (to increase or decrease exercise difficulty) an example of this would be to help take some weight off whilst performing pull ups (Attach a band to a secure pull up bar and you are able to rest your feet on the band).
Resistance bands have been adopted into a range of training exercises that largely benefit those training in Body building; Power lifting, Boxing and MMA.
Below are a few examples on how they can be used in each Sport:
Power lifting & Bodybuilding
Bands can be attached to barbells to increase or decrease resistance on bench press, squats, bicep curls, dead lifts etc. An example to increase difficulty on Bench Press would be attaching a band to the outside of the barbell and a heavy secure object below. As you perform the movement you will find the exercise increasingly difficult during the concentric phase (as you push the bar off your chest). The resistance will continuously increase as the bar moves further away from your chest.
Boxing & MMA
An exercise designed to increase punching power - Attach a band to secure upright object at shoulder height. Distance yourself appropriately depending on band resistance and get in your fight stance and then throw punches whilst holding the band.
Increase OR decrease exercise difficulty
Decreasing exercise difficulty would be assisting with pull ups. To increase exercise difficulty an example would be attaching the resistance bands to the floor and bar while performing dead lifts. The resistance would continually increase until you reached the end range of motion.
Increasing exercise difficulty - Attaching bands to two secure heavy objects on the floor and to both sides of a Barbell and then performing movements such as Dead lifts, Squats, Bench Press, Bicep Curls etc.
Decreasing exercise difficulty - Attaching a band to a pull up bar and connecting it to your feet to help take some weight off and assist you with pull ups.
* Although our Resistance Bands are sourced from a Global leading manufacturer to ensure the highest quality. We recommend that you always inspect your resistance bands carefully before use for any tears, wear or damage. Our resistance bands (like any rubber band) are likely to wear and tear over time. Do not use damaged or worn resistance bands and do not use them for something they are not intended for.

Do not use damaged or worn resistance bands and do not use them for something they are not intended for.
*Only fix bands to surfaces that allow the bands to stretch evenly and freely (Smooth surfaces ie cylindrical poles, polished metal surfaces).
If the bands are jammed under high friction objects or equipment with abrasive finishes (Jammed under weight discs / knurled bars) the bands will wear quickly at these fixed points and deteriorate / fail at a much faster rate.
