Resistance Bands

Why did nobody tell me about how powerful resistance bands are? Just bought a bunch of heavy duty ones after seeing Scooby recommend them, and boy do they blow the short and flimsy ones I bought years ago out the water for exercises like rows and flys.

Do you use resistance bands regularly? What exercises do you use them for? Thoughts?

    Plus they take up no space whatsoever and don't weigh a ton, so you can travel with them.
    Why does anyone even use weights at this point? These seem like a much better alternative in virtually all ways.

    They’re kino although will never replace barbells and dumbbells. But are super versatile.
    I use then a lot for warming up and when on business trips to use at the hotel room.
    Very good acquisition. I recommend you to check some vids from Chris Heria about good exercises for them.

    the only issue with the bands is that they are usually easiest at the peak of the stretch, but hard at the peak of contraction.

    Current studies point to lengthened resistance training for optimal muscle growth, called stretch mediated hypertrophy.

    Think of a lat pulldown, bands vs a machine, with the machine you stretch your lats and then pull with them, there's a ton of tension at the end range and then you pull down. With a band, there's no tension at the stretch, but maximal tension when you contract and pull down.

    They're still really good and better than nothing, and because they aren't hard at the stretch, they lend themselves well to injuries and easier lifting for those that have issues with training.

      Studies shmudies

      Fitness scienstists are a disgrace as they are formed of complete idiot leftovers of real doctor students and sometimes literal "i dont have a project" med statistics students who then produce research like - do deadlifts increase your poop size

      If you feel resistance bands are great use them. I like gym, but i also like to work out at home once a week and i am not buying a bar and dumbbells for that if i can hace 20$ alternative
      I also imagine resistance bands could potentially make you super strong in jiujitsu and armwrestling eh?

        the stretch mediated hypertophy phenomenon is consistent with what know in terms of clinical research and clinical outcomes. When dealing with tendinopathy, the exercises that induce the most adaptation and thus healing are those that are at long lengths. Wall sits are far better for patellar tendinopathy than leg extensions. Long lever bridging and slider exercises are good for rehabbing hamstring tendinopathy. Eccentric focused wrist movements are also really good for tennis / golfer elbow

        If bands work for you, that's great, I even alluded to that in my post. I was just offering an insight to possible shortcomings you may have with them. Barbells, dumbbells, and bands are all pretty much sidegrades, none are superior to another.

    they are a good support and variation to dumbells and kettlebells.

    but i think there is a reason nobody really got athletic or even huge with them yet.

    just another tool in the box. dont let the novelty hype carry you away.

    My shoulders are sensitive, have a history of nasty injuries. Since I have been starting every workout with resistance band shoulder warm ups, I don't have any problem. My shoulders are stronger than ever.

    They're good for isolation exercises as a cheap alternative for cables in a home gym. Buy a couple different ones, get a little creative and you'll be able to hit your muscles in very interesting ways. Definitely an underrated item, because it's mostly popular with women for their hoe lowe body exercises.
