Baby J and I are spending three weeks with Hubby, and we’re living out of what is, essentially, an extended stay hotel. When you’re traveling, it’s nearly impossible to pack up your free weights and bring them with, especially if you’re flying! That can be problematic for someone like me, who’s trying to build muscle.
Even when I’m at home, I don’t always have gym access and many times I end up working out in our living room. There’s not a lot of space. Resistance bands are great because they’re lightweight and small, but still bring an extra oomph to your workout by providing resistance during strength training. They’re also inexpensive. The band I’m reviewing is currently on sale for $14.99.
Resistance bands are made of rubber with handles on the ends. The DynaPro ProGrade resistance bands are 100 percent latex dipped. The idea is this makes their bands more durable than standard bands. A durable band means the resistance during use is more consistent, and the band itself is less likely to snap.
The band I’m reviewing is the medium band, which provides a resistance of 20 lbs. DynaPro also sells 10 lbs. and 30 lbs. bands.
If you’re not sure how to use a resistance band, a quick Internet search will result in dozens of exercises to help you workout your whole body. Here are a few photos of me in action, in our hotel room. If I look like my form is wrong, it might be! I’m new to resistance bands.
One thing I’ve really been trying to do lately with my workouts is mix things up. I have to, or my body will “plateau,” and I’ll stop seeing results. I like that the resistance bands open up a plethora of workout possibilities that I can rotate through. It also keeps me from getting bored. 🙂
The handles are very comfortable, and the band also features adjustable attachment (see photo below) that allows you to adjust the length of the band.
