This is because the word resistance, as applied to the Power Band, means so many different things. They add all kinds of specific benefits to your training.
The Power Band is a first-rate stretching tool. By fixing it at one end and using it to stretch a given limb, like lying on your back, looping it around the sole of your foot and pulling with your hands to stretch the hamstring, the band will increase the intensity of the stretch with a pressure that is easily regulated.
The Power Band will add specific dimensions to your weight training. It can be used like a spotter. For example, if you attach two Power Bands of equal tension to the top of the squat rack, the bands will assist you out of the bottom position so you don’t end up stuck.
The Power Band will make your weight training sport-specific. If you connect two Power Bands of equal tension to the frame of the bench press and then at either end of the bar, the bands will stretch when you reach lockout and increase the load. This makes the most difficult part of the contraction at the extension of the movement, rather than down on your chest. By training this way, you’ll be generating much greater force at extension when throwing, striking or punching.
The Power Band can function like a smaller version of the Agility Band. When you stretch the band, momentum is stored in it. As it contracts, it directs that force back into the muscle, training your ability to decelerate. Being able to decelerate effectively means that you have greater control over your movement and conditions you against injury.
Power Bands are also an excellent tool for developing technique. By looping bands around the body for specific exercises, like squats, the bands not only provide resistance, but gently assist in reinforcing correct movement patterns. In a similar way, Power Bands are also a sensational rehab tool.
The Power Band is simple to use, simple to care for and can be used anywhere you want to train.
Enhance your Power Band training with the Utility Strap
The Utility Strap will enhance the performance and lifespan of your band. Utility Straps enable you to attach bands to anything in seconds, as well as preventing knots and protecting from sharp edges.
The Advanced Pack contains pairs of blue, red and orange bands. Great for more heavy-duty spotting, as well as full-body de-loading and tractioning during stretching.
Please note: Power Bands are made from 100% pure latex. If you have a latex allergy, it’s probably best not to make skin contact with them.
Our Power Bands are the only true resistance bands that have "latex layer technology".
This is a proprietary technology (25 years in the making) that ensures maximum durability and lifespan for each band. Every band is manufactured by laying the latex around and around allowing it to cure together – it's a slower process but ensures top quality.
Other manufacturers simply dip their bands into the latex and hope for the best. Quality cannot be guaranteed this way. Worse still, some cheaper manufacturers are loading the rubber with fillers to reduce costs further.
Our rubber is 100% pure – no fillers and no short cuts are taken. Ever!
