Here's A Great Way To Strength Train

I love to lift weights! I do that once a week. The other days I use bands and rings (or some call them loops).

Bands and rings give you a different feel. I get a deeper burn. I was amazed when I started to use them. They're easier on your joints than weights too.

Bands and rings also take a lot less hassle to use. They don't take up space for storage. They can't fall on the floor and injure the cat or your kids lol. They're inexpensive and easy to take from room to room, to work or to a hotel.

Variety is key with exercise. It's good to use different methods to strength train just like using different methods to get your aerobics.

Anything that overloads the muscles will cause the muscle to strengthen. Using your body weight to challenge your muscles works too. 

As we age we lose muscle mass which leads to a slower metabolism which leads to weight gain. It is so important to take the time to strength train. 

I share my personal band workout out on my DVD "Body Bands and Rings"

I've done this workout all over the world. I travel with a bag of bands and rings in my luggage and I'm good to go. I can strength train where ever I am. No need to skip my workout.

You can buy the bands on my website on the "equipment" page you don't have bands or rings. They sell them at most sporting good stores.

Give bands and rings a try and let me know what you think.

  1. Love this. I'm going to have to invest in some bands. :)

  2. I love bands. I put you on my links. Let me know when you get the "Total Strength Training" DVD. I sent it in the regular mail. I didn't have time to get to the post office but I weighed it and put on the correct amount of stamps. Fingers are crossed lol

  3. Looks like another great workout. I also love to travel with bands. Perhaps I can review this one after I complete my review of your Total Conditioning DVD. I am so excited to check it out. It just arrived in the mail today.
