Confused about which set of resistance bands to buy? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s a frequently asked question, whichis why we created a quick shopping guide to help you find the right ones to give you the best workout and meet your unique needs.
How will you be using the set?
If you want them for pull-ups or adding resistance to a barbell, XFit Power bands can easily loop around a bar and you can change the resistance level as you increase your strength. If you’re looking for something that can be used for therapy and gentle toning, a flat or loop band is a great option. Both power bands and flat bands are also great for stretching assistance. If you’re doing exercises that require a solid grip like chest presses or back rows, tube bands with handles are your best bet. When it comes to handles, consider if you want bands that you can stack together for more resistance (Stackable Resistance Bands), or if it’s easier to have handles on every single band (Tube Bands with Attached Handles). Perhaps you’re a fitness trainer working with 3 or 4 people at a time, or working out with friends. In this case, you would need bands that each have their own handle.
What is most comfortable for you?
The most important thing with any workout equipment is to make sure it fits your needs and you feel comfortable using it. Resistance band sets can be used for many of the same purposes, so it really comes down to your personal preference. Some people prefer thin bands, while others like them more thick; some prefer handles while others prefer an open-ended style. It’s usually best to keep a variety on hand to target all of your muscles in just the right way. The best news is that they are much more affordable than most workout gear, so if you can’t decide on one or the other, you can always create your own unique and custom set by selecting individual strengths in flat, loop and tube styles!
