Resistance bands anyone?? Help!?

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anybody has first hand experience with those resistance bands you can buy..?

I'm looking at a pack that has multiple bands all different resistance rating and you can hook them to your legs or feet or even under the door..

I don't get out the house much so looking for something that will help me without my core and my arms and belly area?

Do they actually work?

Do they actually make a difference?

Tell me your stories :)

Summer has just started here DOWN UNDER!

I've just hit the 100lb goal but still hoping to lose another 20+lbs by the end of summer!!

Need help toning under my arms mostly but generally need to gain some strength and muscle tone :)

Thank you.

Congrats on the 100 pounds lost! That's awesome! As far as bands go I have used some in physical therapy over the years, but not enough to firm up.

I have used them in the past. I liked switching back and forth between hand weights and resistance bands, I felt that gave me the better results. I will warn you, if one decides it has had enough and it is going to rip, it can hurt pretty bad. 🤣

I bought one ($10 from Kmart) which is rope like with handles and a door attachment thingy. (I like it better than the flat strip ones you wrap around your hands which I used to use at Yoga.)

I don’t like the whole gym thing so I thought I’d try the bands instead. They’re great for toning but i think if you want to build muscle weights are the way to go. I’ve noticed some toning in my biceps after a couple of weeks which is what I wanted. I just put together my own routine after watching a few you tube videos.
Good luck.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
