Resistance Bands Are Extremely Versatile

For the inexpensive price of $5 to $10, an investment in resistance bands is certainly worth your time and money. The bands work your chest, biceps, triceps, abs, shoulders, back and quads.

Fitness Magazine rates them high because of their varying levels of resistance, portability and great versatility. Resistance bands are suited to most fitness programs. Experts say you can work out with these bands every day for a month and not hit the same muscle the same way twice.

Travelers are buying resistance bands, tucking them into their suitcases and using them to work out in their hotel rooms. But the best new use of them, according to the magazine, is how they're popping up in yoga and Pilates classes. They add resistance and challenge, so you can work your arms and legs as well as your core.
