I started working with Bands



Recommended Posts

I'm 7 weeks post op, 2 day post 1st fill. I am brisk walking 5 x's a week 3 x

s daily but my doctor told me to start doing weight resistance training. So after deciding joining a gym was just too costly right now, I read an article in Prevention magazine about working with bands. They did a study of which form of exercise provided quickest results between yoga, pilates , working with dumbbells or using band. The bands won. So my 22 year old daughter (who's lost 22 lbs with 10 to go) decided to be my trainer. She was a All State Athlete in High school traveling on top notch fast pitch softball teams and playing basketball. It felt great working my upper body and was fairly easy. But the lower body definitely needs a lot of work. I've been suffering from butt and lower back pain for about 6 months so I could barely do 2 situps and leg lifts. But I know, it will be a slow process and I'll have to work my way up to being able to do more with lower body. I'll keep everyone posted on my results. Thanks for listening!!

Hi Rumar:

I love exercise Bands! I have a few DVDs that use them. I first used them in a Leslie Sansone DVD and liked them so much I bought a total body Band workout. It's called 10 Minute Solutions: Tone Trouble Zones.

I like using bands too. My trainer started me using them in our sessions so I bought me some for at home and use them quite frequently throughout the day (I work at home so am able to just take a few minutes out and do them several times daily). They seem to do their job AND they are fun to boot!

Great! So apparently you two are witnesses that they do work. I agree J.S., I do love them and my 2nd session was much easier and I felt great afterwards. fabfatgirl, I'll have to get that DVD, especially the 10 minute one if you can touch all areas in that length of time. Our sessions last about 30 minutes.

The DVD has different 10 minute workouts...

* arm and shoulder sculpt

* butt & thigh blaster

* sleek & sexy abs

* total body tone zone

* 10 minute stretch

It comes with a Band as well. ;)

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
