If you aren't familiar with hip-hop music, the title of this post probably fell flat... and for that I apologize. But regardless, resistance bands are an absolute game changer for your at-home, on-the-road, and gym workout routines.
Resistance bands do exactly as their name implies; they use resistance to work your muscles. The different band colors generally denote the level of resistance. It is common for lighter color bands (like yellow) to be lighter resistance, and darker colored bands (like black) to be heavier resistance. Having a variety of resistance bands is best so that you are able to perform a variety of workouts, from upper body to lower body. Not only are these bands small enough to pack away in tight corners of your home, but you can pack these bad boys in your car on your next road trip, or put them in your suitcase for your next getaway. No more excuses!
ZojiFit is a premium fitness gear and apparel company, known for its workout gear and attire. ZojiBands are respected as one of the strongest, most durable bands in the industry. Being the fitness enthusiast that I am, ZojiFit was kind enough to send over some resistance bands for me to try out. I use bands almost daily in my fitness routines, and I'm telling you, if you aren't using bands yet, you need to be!
This full resistance band set from ZojiFit is super affordable and has everything you need to get in a great resistance band workout: five resistance bands of varying intensities, two attachable handles, one doorstop knob, and one ankle cuff. All bands have carabiners (easy to open clasps) to attach handles and other accessory pieces.
