One of the things we offer at our Pontypridd gym is a variety of resistance bands ranging from 50 to 170lbs
Training with bands can add variety to your training in a similar way to adding chains. They will cause a movement to become harder as they become more stretched. So whilst at the top portion of a leg press, for example, when the movement is usually at its easiest point, adding bands will cause more and more tension to be added, making the movement harder as you press higher.
Bands can be added to machines or bars or used by themselves over a variety of exercises in the gym.
Examples of using bands in training:
Leg Press (looped around lower fixings and weight bars)
Hack Squat (looped around lower fixings and weight bars)
Bicep Curls (standing on bands, gripping band with both hands, or with a bar)
Bench Press (looped around bar and attached to floor or above)
Chin Ups (aiding the movement, looped around feet or knees)
Tricep extensions (looped around chin up bar)
