WHY TRAIN WITH BANDS?
Low impact on joints: This makes bands great for rehab, mobility, power, and athletic performance exercises.
Variable resistance: Resistance increases as bands are stretched. Muscles will often receive greatest resistance during the strongest point in the range of motion. Another reason why these are great for power and athletic exercises.
Increased core and stabilizer muscle activation: This is due to constant resistance from band tension (free weights do not provide constant resistance). Bands can help you develop stability, increase strength, and decrease the risk of developing muscular imbalances.
Versatility: As shown above, bands can be used for a multitude of different purposes and offer more exercise freedom because you're not relying on gravity to create resistance.
Portability: Bands are lightweight and compact, and you can use them virtually anywhere. You can carry a full body workout worth of bands easily in your gym bag, backpack, or suitcase.
