Top 9 Benefits of Resistance Band Training

SLINKII Resistance Bands are the perfect piece of equipment to stay active on the move or in the comfort of your home. You can achieve an effective full-body workout with a single band or up the ante with a set by switching between varying strengths of resistance bands. The bands are constructed with high-performance blend fabric, a wide band design for comfort and non-slip silicone tape to prevent roll-up so you can train at your best. The light and portable design also means that you can take them wherever you go and train anywhere, anytime.
Here are 9 reasons why we can't get enough of resistance band training:

1. SUITABLE FOR ALL FITNESS LEVELS

SLINKII resistance bands come in three different strength levels – light, medium and heavy. It is easy to control the intensity of a workout by simply adjusting the level of resistance, making it suitable for all levels of fitness, from beginners to advanced athletes. 

2. SUITABLE FOR VARIOUS FITNESS GOALS

SLINKII resistance bands are suitable for various fitness objectives and are ideal for both males and female serious about fat loss, body sculpting and strength building.

Fat Loss

Combine your SLINKII resistance bands with HIIT or circuit training to incorporate cardio training into your fitness regimen. The high intensity of these workouts will help burn extra calories and promote fat loss. 

Increased strength

SLINKII resistance bands are a great low-impact alternative to free weights for strength training. The bands can be easily used to target specific muscle groups and promote general increased strength. 

Increased muscle mass

SLINKII Resistance bands are also suitable for increasing muscle mass and tone. The added resistance and stimulus of the bands will challenge your muscles and promote hypertrophy. 

3. ACHIEVE A FULL BODY WORKOUT WITH A SINGLE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT

SLINKII resistance bands can be used to perform a huge variety of exercises, meaning that you can achieve an effective full-body workout with this single piece of equipment. You can use a single band for movements that target different muscles groups such as your upper body, core, glutes and legs.  

4. CAN BE USED TO MODIFY, INTENSIFY AND ADD VARIETY TO EXERCISES

One of the key benefits of resistance bands training is the variety of exercises and movements you can perform. You can incorporate resistance bands into your workout by using them during regular bodyweight movements or combining the bands with other equipment to up the intensity of standard exercises. Modifying exercises in this way will ensure that your muscles are being challenged and stimulated in different ways.  

5. PROMOTES CORE STABILISATION 

The constant tension added from resistance bands requires stabilisation to maintain correct form and technique. This helps to improve core strength, coordination and balance during movements.

6. ACTIVATE MUSCLES PRIOR TO WEIGHT TRAINING

Resistance bands are an effective way to properly activate your muscles prior to free weight training. Performing banded exercises will help work the muscles that may be underworked when using weights. Greater muscle stimulation is important to ensure that the correct muscles are being targeted during movements so you can train optimally. For example: prior to barbell or weighted squats, try performing banded bodyweight squats for 1 to 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps while maintaining the same level of resistance throughout the movement.

7. TRAIN ANYWHERE AND ANYTIME

SLINKII resistance bands are lightweight, transportable and a space-efficient option for those who are on the move. Each band comes in a travel-ready mesh weave bag so you can easily pack them into your gym bag, travel suitcase or purse wherever you go.

8. A SAFER WORKOUT ALTERNATIVE

Resistance band training is a relatively safer workout option compared to other forms of exercise such as weight training. Although your muscles are stimulated in a similar way, resistance bands apply less tension and force on your joints since they do not depend on gravity to create the resistance. Since resistance bands are relatively low impact, exercises can be performed for many repetitions without overtaxing your joints or your body compared to weights. This makes them suitable to aid recovery for those in rehabilitation from sports-related injury. 

9. A COST-EFFECTIVE TRAINING SOLUTION

Resistance bands are not only an effective workout option, but they are relatively cost-effective too. Whether you purchase an individual band or The Set, resistance band training is a more affordable workout solution compared to gym equipment and memberships.
