What is resistance band?
Exercise band (or resistance band) is a
generic term for any rubber tubing or flat band device used for
strength training (i.e. resistance training). When
strength training, a resistive force is applied to your body that is
greater than normal. This force can be provided by machines, your own
body weight, free weights (dumbbells, barbells) or rubber resistance.
Your body can't tell the difference if this force is from metal or
rubber--your muscles, bones and connective tissue will respond by
getting stronger. The advantages of using exercise bands include
portability, ability to vary the tension to make an exercise harder,
and performing exercises that cannot be done with free weights.
