Anton Cap, expert of the Federal network of fitness clubs X-Fit: “Body bands or fitness bands are small rings of soft latex. They have different stiffness, which allows to exercise with different resistance, and therefore the load on the muscle varies. There is equipment for a long time — about 15-20 years ago, but if the earlier exercises with the rubber bands included in the program avid fans of exercise, but now thanks to advertising on social networks about their effectiveness telling all and Sundry! And no wonder, since fitness bands suitable for everyone allow you to train anywhere, come to help in the development of different muscle groups and still fit in your pocket! Because the body bands are the only tool that can improve and make more effective a particular exercise, the training program is developed depending on your goals.

If you want to work out the buttocks and during exercises work the quadriceps, urgently change technique! Same situation with Missoni back. If, instead of the graceful posture and slender body you don’t want to get a headache and strained muscles, watch your feelings carefully and try the trainer.
The main advantage of using fitness bands — improving the efficiency of the exercises. This happens due to the inclusion of additional muscles as stabilizers and synergists. When you create an external resistance (which are just body bands) the complexity of the exercise increases and the work included a greater number of muscle groups. Consequently, calorie consumption increases. Below are the top 5 exercises with a fitness band that will help to pump you not only the glutes, but also feet and also hands.”

The intensity and number of repetitions of sit-UPS is selected based on the level of training.
