2What is Resistance Band Strength Training? When you use free weights, gravity decides where the weight comes from, so you get more resistance during one part of the movement. With bands, the tension is constant, which makes it feel harder. Bands work much like a cable machine, allowing you to keep constant tension on the muscle.With weights, you know exactly how much you're lifting. With bands, you can only go by how it feels and the tension on the band. That doesn't mean you're not getting a good workout, though. If you use good form and the right level of tension, your muscle fibers won't know the difference between weights or bands. Plus, bands offer more variety because you can create the resistance from all directions--the side, overhead, below, etc.Resistance bands are cheaper and more portable than free weights. There are two types of resistance bands: flat bands and tubes. Tubes have handles, so they may be easier for a beginner.
3How to stand on bandAll Resistance band exercises should be performed slowly and under control. Begin with the band at the start of tension which increases as you perform the exercise. To make the exercise more difficult, shorten the section of band you are using to increase the tension over the range of motion.
4Bicep Curl Partner do Crunches: legs at 90 degree angle crunch up to knees continuefor 30 secondsMuscles Developed: Bicep, Brachloaradialis,brachialisName: Standing Biceps Curl Gym Equivalent: Dumbbell Curls/Cable Machine Biceps Curl/EZ Bar CurlsSTART : Stand on the band with your feet shoulder width apart.

Return to starting position and repeat.
