Versa Loops Resistance Band Training

Is your workout program slowly killing you?

Sometimes, we just aren’t that smart.

We do something over and over, even though the feedback from our bodies says, “Hey knucklehead, that hurts! Knock it off!” Most of us just aren’t that good at listening to this type of feedback.

It isn’t hard—our bodies are excellent at giving appropriate feedback when necessary. We just like to hold onto maxims like, “No pain, no gain.” Sure, a little soreness is going to creep in, and you shouldn’t be afraid of that at all.

But when things start getting chronic, that’s when it’s time to take note.

What’s funny (or sad, depending on how you look at it) is a little resistance band training can go a heck of a long way in curing and, better yet, preventing this kind of pain.

What Is Resistance Band Training?

Resistance band training involves using simple pieces of rubber with varying thickness to create resistance for the muscles.

They can range from very light resistance to very difficult—and each one has it’s purpose depending on where you are in your fitness journey.

The main use they have in my program is injury prevention exercise. Here is a brief list of the exercises I perform with resistance bands:

  • Pull aparts
  • X walks
  • Face pulls
  • Hip abduction
  • Hip adduction
  • Pull overs
  • Upright rowing

They can also be a great tool for assisting people who cannot perform a pull up on their own, but like I said, they are absolutely killer for injury prevention workouts.

If you are not doing anything to prevent injuries in your workout program, you are asking for injuries to happen. Do yourself a favor and grab a few Versa Loops and start resistance band training today.
