With all of those facts in mind, it’s safe to say that resistance bands are truly irresistible. You can use resistance bands for exercises that target any body part without putting extra pressure on the joints. And while the usual strength exercises focus on bigger muscle groups, resistance band exercises can be great for targeting those smaller muscles that function as stabilizers, too. Below is an exercise guide for the Resistance Bands.
