Resistance bands are a relatively inexpensive and versatile way to train, recover, and build strength in many different parts of the body. Used by world class athletes as well as physical therapists to promote fitness and health, these resistance cables allow you to use the high and low resistant elasticity to target specific areas of improvement. One of the greatest benefits of fitness bands is that you can use them whenever and wherever you are. On a sunny day on the back patio or at your high tech gym resistance bands are never out of place. Find yourself the right thickness and right resistance, for the activity you want to do and get on with it. Many resistance cords use edge handles that you can hold onto for better grip and more consistent technique.
