Did you know that you don't necessarily need to lift weights to build muscular strength? Find out how to complete your weight training with simple, effective techniques and alternative methods.
You may have heard about resistance band workouts without having tried them. These workouts are very effective as a complement to traditional weight training. Initially used in rehabilitation, this technique has become more widespread; and is now an essential part of many muscle strengthening exercises.
Thanks to the resistance work, resistance bands help you gain speed, strength and muscle power; which are essential for improving your physical performance. You can use the bands during your warm-up or in addition to a weight training program, to carry out exercises with lighter loads.
For example, you can use heavy loads to work your upper body (triceps, pecs, shoulders, back) or your glutes one day, and then use the resistance bands to repeat 3 or 4 lighter series the following day.
