A while back I decided to give up belonging to a gym and exercising with weights. Due to my rather hectic schedule I wasn’t getting to the gym very often, and after years of lifting weights it just wasn’t resonating with me anymore. The result was that I ended up abandoning exercise for way too long, but now I’m back on a regular exercise regimen.
When I returned to exercising I focused much more on bodyweight exercises which syncs much better with my gymnastics, dance, aerobics and yoga background. But there are times I like to have some other weight resistance exercises thrown into the mix. When I do, I now use elastic resistance bands instead of traditional weights, specifically Bodylastics Resistance Bands. They are incredibly well made and it’s really easy and quick to change the amount of weight resistance you want by simply clicking into place a variety of elastic band combinations.
If you’re looking for a quality set of resistance bands, I highly recommend these.
