Thera-Band Exercises

Thera-Band Exercises

In this section you will find thera-band exercises for all muscle groups. There are different bands. Bands with handles, bands without handles, loop bands etc. Bands with handles are usually tighter and therefore more capable for strength development and plyometric exercises. Thin (drapery like) bands without handles are usually better for fitness and rehabilitation exercises. However, there are also very tight thera-bands without handles, and if you put 2 bands together, you get enough resistance for heavy exercises. For more information and bands, tightness & colors, visit Find medicine ball exercises, plyometric & isometric exercises at track & field main. For information about weight training, click here.
