The Spartan Strength Band: What Is It?

The strength band is an absolute must have in your training equipment arsenal. They are a lightweight compact training tool that can virtually be taken anywhere! A strength band fills in the holes for any good training program and are a great substitute for dumbbells or kettlebells. Strength bands give you the benefit of resistance with limited risk. For anybody transitioning from bodyweight exercising to more strength-based modalities, strength bands are a good in-between and offer a ton of versatility!

What It Can Do for You

One of the great things about strength bands as that through the range of motion you get different levels of resistance. For instance, with any pulling exercise, when the band is loose or has slack, there is little to no resistance but as you pull, the resistance becomes stronger and stronger. This means you can simply make an exercise harder by standing farther from the anchor point. Strength bands are also a great way to keep the core and grip engaged.
