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.

Mike

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. 🤣

Well I've got some small dumbbells as well

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.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
