Power Band exercises
Need some exercise inspiration? Take a look at our power band exercise images. There you will find some great variations on exercises that you may already know, but with extra resistance.
For example, give your squats, push ups, pull ups and kickbacks an extra dimension using power bands. They are also a good addition during powerlifting workouts such as the bench press. As you stretch an elastic further, it provides more resistance. So the exercise gets heavier the further you stretch them. You can use the Power Bands to work on your pull ups, muscle ups and chin ups. You will practice the movement, while you do not yet have the strength to perform sets the way you want. You will be surprised how much technique it takes to do a decent pull up. As soon as you understand the technique, you can slowly expand your sets and switch to a lighter elastic or even no elastic at all. Before you know it you have mastered them!
