Figure 8 Resistance Band Exercises


Figure 8 Resistance Band Exercises

Not every resistance band exercise requires yards and yards of elastic bands but some do require you to create loops in the bands, which can cause premature wear and tear. That's where "figure eight" elastic bands come in. To do hip abduction, place one foot in each loop of the "eight"; stand on one foot as you swing the other Barkevious Mingo Browns Jersey leg gently away from your body, against the band's resistance.


For hamstring curls, loop one end of the band around a smooth, vertical support the round Authentic Phil Taylor Jersey leg of a sturdy piece of furniture works. Place your ankle in the other loop and bend that knee, flexing it against the band's resistance.


For mule kicks, slip one of the loops around one knee; kneel on it. For example, concentration curls: kneel or sit with a foot anchoring one of the band's loops; grasp the other one and curl up toward your chest.


Figure eight bands are also good for doing rear Authentic Justin Gilbert Jersey deltoid flyes: Hold one of the band's handles in each hand, in front Justin Gilbert Browns Jersey of your chest at about nipple level. Pull the ends of the band apart and back, as if you were stretching it across your chest. Elastic bands can snap if stretched too far so instead of doing biceps curls with both hands at once, stand in one loop of the band and do curls with just one arm at a time. Or stick Phil Taylor Jersey to exercises that are unlikely to damage the band, such as pushups, Barkevious Mingo Jersey chest flyes, one armed triceps extensions and "wide grip" lat pulldowns done without anchoring the middle of the band.


Food for Thought


No matter what Authentic Barkevious Mingo Jersey shape they may be, elastic resistance Phil Taylor Browns Jersey bands are still, at their heart, giant rubber bands. So before you begin working out with your band, look it over closely then stretch it out to its full length and check it over again. If you Justin Gilbert Jersey see any cracks, tears, discolorations or any other obvious signs of wear, replace the band right away.
