Mini band, power band or hip band? Choose the best resistance bands When choosing resistance bands, consider what you will mainly be using them for. Are you focusing on strengthening and shaping your glutes? Reach for the mini band resistance rubber set, which features several types of bands corresponding to different load ranges. It will allow you to progress the difficulty of your exercises and achieve better results. Don't have space for a home gym, want to strengthen your whole body or learn to pull yourself up on an exercise bar? Power bands would be the ideal choice. The resistance levels of exercise bands are usually indicated by colour (e.g. yellow, pink, green - light resistance, red and blue - medium resistance, black, grey, gold - strong resistance). Another determinant of resistance in exercise bands is the width. For example, a width of 13 mm means low resistance up to about 9 kg, 32 mm is medium resistance up to about 25 kg, and 64 mm is already high resistance up to about 55 kg. The thickness of the exercise rubber also determines the resistance - the thicker it is, the better it is for exercising large parts of the body, e.g. the back or chest. Mini bands These take the form of loops (circumference 50-80 cm) and are usually manufactured from stretchable latex or robust nylon. Mini bands are best for exercises to strengthen the buttocks, abdomen and shoulders. They can be used as an additional load when exercising with barbells or dumbbells. Power bands Power bands are longer (circumference of 2 m or more), more stretchy and thicker than mini bands. The wide range of resistance levels makes it possible to use them in warm-ups or in the main workout in powerlifting, crossfit, as well as in the exercises of a beginner. Hip band Material resistance bands (usually cotton with plastic) in the shape of a sash are low-stretch (more resistance) and hold well in one place (more comfort). They are mainly used for lower body training. Floss band Individual resistance bands for wrapping tense and painful areas. They vary in length, width and thickness. They are used to relax muscles and surrounding fascia, reduce swelling and increase joint mobility. Floss band compression bands will be a good companion for recovery after injury or surgery, as well as for training with heavy weights. Which expander to choose?
