Resistance bands have to be the of the most, if not the most, versatile fitness tools out there.
Prehab or Injury prevention? Use a band
Rehab for injured joints or muscles? There's a band for it.
Warm-up for lifting? There's a band for it.
Warm-up for soccer, hockey, basketball, tennis, or most any other sport? There's a band for it!
Need to loosen up stiff ankles, hips, shoulders? Yup, you got it, there's a band for it.
Why are they so good?
Which Resistance is right for you?
That depends on a few factors but generally here are the resistance levels by colour:
Yellow - 15lbs
Red - 35lbs
Black - 65lbs
Purple - 85lbs
Green - 120lbs
Blue - 160lbs
Orange - 220lbs
Grey - 240lbs
Yellow, red, black (15lbs to 65lbs) are great for warm-ups, prehab, rehab of your smaller joints like wrist, shoulder, elbows, ankles and knees. Great for warming up before a shoulder routine.
Red, black, purple and green (35lbs to 120lbs) make great support for assisted pull-ups. Also great for anchoring yourself and working on some lateral hops and movements
Black, Purple, Green (65lbs to 120lbs) - consider these the warm-up trio for your bigger lifts like squats, deadlifts, bench press. You can even use these by themselves for your workouts. You WILL sweat!
Blue, Orange, Grey (160lbs+) - now you're in the weightlifting zone! You can get a solid workout with these.
The resistance bands from fit it out are such high quality they are going to last me a long time. I use them in a variety of workouts and they are perfect for all my needs.
We are a soccer household and our two sons have played high level soccer, avidly, for 10 years+. That unfortunately comes with the occasional injury. Following a previous order of dumbbells, racks and various weight plates and bars, my first choice was Fit It Out for various resistance bands for recovery and strength training. As usual, they delivered on a great product at a competitive price and made the whole collection process very easy and safe.
