Common Questions and Answers about Workouts resistance bands


Avatar f tn They are also many exercises you can do without even touching weights or resistance bands! Good luck, you got this! You can always pm me to talk more.
2022474 tn?1328705151 Suggested Equipment While you do not need any equipment for the majority of the exercises, sans those with resistance bands, I have put together a listing of stuff that could be useful for you personally now or while you progress with the program. Priority devices are starred. Sinking Belt: This can be to include excess weight for your pull-ups and dips. $30 25lb Plate: You are able to attach this towards the sinking belt or use while doing crunches or hyperextensions.
728237 tn?1268112674 Here we go!! Bought healthier food and am following the P90x eating plan. Doing workouts with my hubby every night for 4-5 nights a week.
Avatar n tn Starting from arm workouts (using 5lb weights and resistance bands) then followed by workouts that can be done at home later. (Squats, dips, etcetera ). I was not every active pre pregnancy but I would like to keep my body tight. Will this do any harm to my unborn? Thanks.
Avatar m tn I would do planks and workouts with resistance bands ( you can get them for very cheap), You will see faster results and you won't hurt yourself in the process. I know you don't wanna go on a diet, but do consider looking at what you are eating. Sugars and carbs are not good for anyone trying to lose weight around the stomach area. Also, consider lowering your carbs and taking in more protein in return. Don't lower your fat intake! You need fat to burn fat! But healthy fat, of course.
Avatar f tn , and buy some resistance bands and two 8lb weights to start. Don't worry about getting bulky--it's pretty much impossible for women to get bulky from strength training, especially the older we get. Good luck with everything!
Avatar n tn You can easily do circuit training workouts at home or at the gym on your own. Workouts last 30 to 45 minutes each and use either dumbbells, resistance bands or just your own body weight as a resistance. You're doing a series of exercises one after another in a circuit without taking any breaks in between the exercises. You will do both weight training exercises such as pushups, situps and squats, and aerobic exercises such as jumping jacks, jumping rope and burpees.
1417531 tn?1365601325 We currently are using some free weights with the workouts however, our main source of weights are from the resistance bands. DH has said plenty of times that he would love to get some Bowflex SelectTech dumbells.... I thought for an anniversary gift that these would be ideal! Iron/Workout equipment..year 6 of wedding... However, here's my dilemna: First, good idea or no? I know he'd use them and love them but is it practical for an anniversary gift?
483733 tn?1326802046 A big balance ball, a medicine ball, resistance bands, and small hand weights are also in my arsenal. I also found a really big floor mat online. Most of the mats in stores are not very wide, and it's kinda discourging if you don't feel like you fit well on your mat! Also, the wide mat is a great surface to do my video workouts on, and gives my joints an extra layer of padding on top of my shoes and carpet. Hmmm, I feel pretty guilty that I skipped my AM workout now!
Avatar f tn Start with three sets of 15 repetitions per leg. Again google it for pictures. For The leg extension and leg curl. Use resistance bands google that also. When you perfect the basic form of squats and lunges, you can then add these plyometrics. It's the quick and complete contraction of the muscles needed to perform these exercises leads to strong and toned legs.
Avatar f tn You can also do some stretching exercises after getting out of bed as well as clear a specific spot on the floor for jogging in place, skipping rope or using resistance bands. For healthy skin tone, you can also use body wraps.
Avatar n tn To vary your strength training routine, change the mode, type and resistance level of your exercises. Instead of using dumbbells, try resistance bands. Alternatively, replace preacher curls with bicep curls and up your repetitions. Try the following The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling down period in between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90 second cool down in between each outburst.
4322184 tn?1352879610 It's one thing for me to do yoga, spin poi and dance-- because those are activities I find fun and interesting (except the yoga, I don't really like it so I mix it into the middle of other workouts as much as possible.) Even doing Pilates with resistance bands is fun because it's challenging and because it's kind of fascinating to see how these new moves are reshaping my figure and improving my flexibility. I can turn up the music and really push my way through.
Avatar f tn Plus I have a little more stamina during the workouts. I finally got around to trying the resistance bands today.......ugh!!!! upper body is more out of shape than I thought, but I managed to do 10 minutes of upper arm exercises. Much tougher than walking on the treadmill, that's for sure. Funny, it looks so easy when "Miss Skinny Minnie" is demonstrating the moves on the DVD that came with the bands. When I do it, I look like Dancing Bear on ice skates.
740456 tn?1260453409 I usually stopped at 250 reps and then upped my weight and started at around 25-50 or till I got tired. Resistance bands are great for this and they have ALOT of other uses too!
Avatar f tn I think I may still have my stretchy resistance bands. I don't have health issues that would hold me back. I did recently find out that I was born with only one kidney and my urologist didn't give me a list of do and don'ts. He just said go about everything like normal except for medicines in which I have to past them by him first or get a prescription from him. I also have panic attacks, but I think those came along with not exercising or not having anything to do.
15795633 tn?1443189638 Workouts last 30 to 45 minutes each and use either dumbbells, resistance bands or just your own body weight as a resistance. You're doing a series of exercises one after another in a circuit without taking any breaks in between the exercises. You will do both weight training exercises such as pushups, situps and squats, and aerobic exercises such as jumping jacks, jumping rope and burpees. Each exercise is done for a set amount of time, I suggest 30 seconds, or a set amount of repetitions.
427265 tn?1444080036 They have more resistance than the regular type bands which is why I think they work. I have only found them at Sears. I use it so much I snapped one and couldn't find it at the regular exercise equipment places.
Avatar f tn My husband bought me a yoga and a cardio/resistance workout. He got me the resistance bands and yoga mat too. Igot to start yesterday. It helped me stretch out my hip and feel better.
Avatar f tn Resistance training does not require weight lifting -- using your own body as the weight, which is what it sounds like you're doing, will work. Resistance bands work. It's also going to be hard to get your body to a good metabolic rate if you keep switching your diet up.
Avatar f tn You can stay motivated! Be realistic. You may dream of running the Boston Marathon or climbing Mount Everest. But if your current fitness level would more comparable to a sloth's, you might be setting yourself up for failure. If your goals aren't attainable, they ain't gonna happen. Maybe it's simpler than marathons and mountains--a smaller dress size or going three flights of stairs without gasping. No matter the desire, it's important to keep perspective and perseverance in mind.
1415174 tn?1453246703 muscles back on. There are some really amazing exercises with resistance bands and self massage with a tennis ball. Have a look on YouTube. I had the same thing so talking just from experience and what I read ;) Also, don't wanna blame and shame but I can't get my head around why your trainer didn't advice you to do so. That should have been the first thing they told you after you mentioned stiffness and pain.
700223 tn?1318169294 If running, don’t increase your mileage or overall time by more than 10 percent per week. In weight training, avoid increasing the resistance or repetitions too drastically too quickly. Overuse injuries occur when you increase your exercise intensity more quickly than your body can adapt to the change. 4. Wear proper protective gear. Helmets are essential for biking, skiing snowboarding, and rollerblading; as well as for team sports such as football, hockey, baseball, and lacrosse.
579258 tn?1250652943 I may resume step counting (which I did earlier this summer for awhile) to make sure I am getting enough activity in... I also got some inexpensive resistance bands that I can use even on the couch, and am thinking of starting up daily stomach crunches. Happy Mid Week, Everyone!
221122 tn?1323014865 It also has resistance bands and a leg strap so you cannot cheat. Believe me when I tell you this thing is no joke. Also, the amount of muscle I've accumulated in two weeks is unreal, compared to what I had.
802547 tn?1237850517 After age 40 women cannot consistently lose weight and keep it off without a plan of regular physical activity (aerobic) plus some resistance work (weights, bands) to improve body tone. Dr. Bill Hall, Past President of the American College of Physicians and Director of the Center for Healthy Aging, Rochester, NY. The 40’s: no better time to get trim and fit Dr. Val: Do women in their 40’s have an advantage in losing weight? Dr.
649848 tn?1534637300 As the muscles get used to being used, weights or resistance bands can be added. Weights can be something as simple as a can of veggies or a bottle of water. A resistance band can be a towel. In addition, as we all know, walking is very beneficial, even if it's only a few laps around the dining room or the back yard to start with. The thing is to move, breathe right and concentrate on your balance, gradually adding more moves as the muscles stretch and get stronger.
172023 tn?1334675884 Since I am still very big, high impact is mostly out of my range, so I also look for workouts that have different levels, so I can work up the intensity as I get better, without needing to buy all new DVDs. For now, I take my laptop in to my exercise space to play DVDs, but I want to buy a permanent player and screen. Since I am nearsighted, I want a large enough screen that I don't need my glasses, and am waiting to spot a deal.
Avatar f tn After these body-weight exercises become manageable for 12 repetitions, add weight in the form of dumbbells or resistance bands. Aim to be more active all day long. Make sure you get the OK from your doctor!!
