Resistance Tubing – A Home Workout Must-Have

If I were to choose the one piece of fitness equipment a home exerciser must have, it is the resistance band.

Why?

Not only does it provide effective resistance and an endless array of exercises, but it is light weight and combact – perfect for the traveling fitness enthusiast.

What is it?

Resistance tubing is available in different strengths (varying thicknesses). The thicker, the more resistance or “strength”.

The strengths are indicated by the color.

Each company provides there own colors, but the company I would recommend is Power Systems.

Their resistances correspond to the following colors:

Yellow:
Very Light

Green:
Light

Red: Medium

Blue: Heavy

Black:
Extra Heavy

What color should I use?

Given that they are each $5-$8, I would recommend purchasing:

yellow, green, and red for the person new to strength training
yellow, green, red, and blue for the intermediate strength trainer
all colors for the super strong!

Each band comes with a sheet of exercises.

Or, print this sheet of exercises. NOTE: I recommend that you purchase the bands with handles. You will have to adapt the exercises from this sheet, since you will have handles.
