Elastic is Fantastic!

The good news is you don’t have to go out and buy a weight set to build lean muscle!  A study found that resistance workouts using elastic tubing are just as effective as those using free weights!  The colors are pretty, but they actually do mean something.  The different colors signal the resistance level.  The more the band is stretched, the higher the resistance level.  Unfortunately there is not a universal color system when it comes to band color, but below is a guide to get you started.  I know that these colors are applicable to SPRI brand resistance bands. 
Yellow    2-5 pounds
Green     3-8 pounds
Red        5-10 pounds
Blue       7-16 pounds

Resistance Band workouts are a great to begin your workout.  Click below for a printable Resistance Band Workout! You can split the workout to make it shorter to fit it all in. As always feel free to email me with any questions you might have.  Enjoy!

    I heard about resistance bands, but I thought they were a joke. I didn't know that they were the real deal. Cool. Thanks- I may be able to keep in some shape yet during this pregnancy besides “round”. LOL

    They really do work! I actually used them quite a bit during the last 4 months of my pregnancy. It made me feel a little bit better about myself since I just kept getting bigger. 🙂
