Resistance Work Out

I have had a few question on what my restriction band was and how it worked.  So I thought I would write a quick blog about it.

A Pilate's restriction band is a heavy duty rubber band to which you wrap around a sturdy pole (or for me my open back steps) and it works some what like a universal exercise machine.  Now don't get me wrong here.... it will not be the exact same workout but you are about to do lungs, crunches, flys, pull downs, squats, etc.  The more more to pull and stretch your band the more Resistance there is on it.  So the strong you get the farther away you stand from your stationary pole and the more resistance you will receive.

I enjoy the restriction band because it doesn't take up any room like a exercise machine does (cause I don't have any room to spare in my house!). Yet you still have so many potions for doing different exercises, you are not limited to just one thing.

My band came with a 78" extension bar that you can hook on to the band and use it with out a pole for squats, lungs, up right pulls, and shoulder presses.  Its amazing!! That's all I have to say.

I found a great website that I use to do a lot of my sets from : Band workouts  and I also use the workout sheet that came with the band.  I say for anyone who doesn't have a lot space in their house or whom might just be starting out exercising (like myself!)  its the best investment, OK one of the best investments.  You can pick up these band just about anywhere.  I got mine from good old Walmart and its was around $20.00 I believe.
