The benefits of using a resistance band for travel and home workouts are awesome and HUGE!

I used to think it won’t work for me

I used to look at resistance bands and think phaa! No weight – won’t work for me. Man need weight, man need heavy weight! Silly boy. The benefits of using a resistance band a great. Now I look at them like a box of pop tarts, gimme! Bands, especially the above easy level CrossFit one, have added new levels of goodness to my performance and output.

The Benefits

I can be creative with it and over time have developed routines for being in a rush, craving a pump, pilates and yoga movements.

1. Total body workout within a 1m squared space, anywhere.

From wrapping it across your back and under your hands for tension hold press-ups. Or under your heels and over your traps for squats. I’ve found there’s no area I can’t work with a resistance band, maintenance too. I’ve used it as a stretching tool on the ABC Himalayan trek and done back pulls and dead lifts from trees in Patagonia.

2. Light weight and portable

Let’s be honest. You ain’t packing two 10kg dumbbells to curl in your 20kg allowance. This thing weighs in at about 2kg with a breaking tension force of over 50kg. That’s a lot of bang for your buck. When backpacking I’ve wrapped round the bag and hung water bottles, trekking poles, pots and pans from it. With my suitcase I’ve done the same and used it as an identifier and to stop the short shorts from bursting out. Just a few more benefits of using a resistance band!

3. Time under tension

‘The pump’ is thrown around a lot in the fitness word. Forcing lots of blood, water and nutrient  into those muscles until they’re at bursting point. I find with resistance bands I naturally train to bursting point. 3-5 seconds eccentric are a standard and the squeeze at peak is greater than I could achieve with most dumbbell workouts. I’ve noticed specific larger gains in my biceps and inner quadriceps from incorporating bands, challenging my nervous system in unique ways. Some muscles respond better to tension but overall most improve.

The benefits of using a resistance band conclusion

All in all the add up to a great functional fitness tool for me. Have you ever used them? What benefits have you fund? Let me know in the comments below and we’ll have a discussion.

I’d just finished 2 months of my TRX and resistance band Muscle Builder plan in the above shots (in red). Stayed 100-200 cals over my maintenance weight hoping to stay a little lean whilst adding a little taco bulk. If you’re looking for a home workout plan or travel workout plan give it a shot.
