What are Resistance Loop Bands?

The Limm Resistance Loop Bands are 100% natural latex bands that form a loop.  If the bands were not in a loop, each band would be 23 inches in length (before being stretched). The set contains 5 varying-resistance bands.

What Do Resistance Loop Bands Do?

According to Dr. Mercola of https://fitness.mercola.com Resistance bands:

  • Allow you to do strength-training exercises without weights.
  • You can get a full-body workout, add variety and intensity to your strength-training exercises using resistance bands.
  • Are inexpensive, easy to store and perfect for exercising while traveling.

Why Use Resistance Bands?

Livehealthy.Chron.com says this about the Benefits of Resistance Bands:

Resistance bands are a very versatile piece of exercise equipment — they can be used to work nearly every muscle in your body. … Because resistance bands do not rely on gravity for resistance, you can use them to do a larger variety of exercises than free weights.

And Livestrong.com says this about the bands:

Although cardio provides the fastest way to burn calories, strengthening your muscles is essential for weight loss because lean muscle mass boosts your metabolism and burns more fatResistance training also helps you lose fat alone, rather than muscle.

So you see, adding resistance bands to your workout will increase the effectiveness of your workout without adding more time or heavy weights. And since the Limm set of bands offers you 5 different resistance levels, you can choose a level that’s right for you while working up to a higher resistance level.

About the Bands

The Limm set includes one (1) of each level:

Color Level Recommended for
Yellow X-Light Rehab, senior training.

Blue Medium Average fitness level.
Red Heavy Average fitness level.
Black X-Heavy Fit and active.

Storage and Care of Bands

  • Store the loop bands away from direct sunlight or extreme temperatures (not too hot or too cold).
  • To clean the bands, wipe  them with  a damp cloth.
  • Avoid exposing the  band to rough or abrasive surfaces.
  • If the loop bands become sticky, clean with water, dry flat and then dust with talcum powder, baby powder or corn starch.

How to Perform Resistance Band Exercises

  • Complete 1 – 3 sets of 8 – 12 repetitions of each selected exercise. Take short breaks of 10 seconds between each  exercise set and a long break of 60 seconds between different exercises.
  • Always do general warm-up activities before performing Limm Loop Band exercises. If you don’t have a favorite warm-up routine, walk in place and swinging your arms for at least 1 minute as an easy way to warm-up.
  • For each exercise, choose a band that has enough resistance to allow you to do  8 to 12 complete repetitions with mild  fatigue on the last set. If you cannot do an exercise, choose a lower level resistance. If you are not feeling the resistance, then choose a higher level resistance.
  • Perform all exercises in a slow and controlled way.
  • When performing an exercise, it’s important to extend the band out and bring it back in slowly, keeping the tension.
  • Perform each exercise through a full range of motion.
  • Perform an equal number of exercise repetitions with each leg/arm to avoid imbalances in the development of a muscle group.
  • Include proper cool-down activities with your resistance training. The recovery  phase  is  a vital part of your exercise routine. One way to do this is to stretch without a band. This will relax your muscles after your workout.

Keep These Points in Mind While Exercising

  • It’s important to keep good form, posture and control while performing these exercises.
  • Keep your abdominal muscles tight while exercising.
  • Slow and controlled motions will help you isolate the muscles you are working.
  • Breathe normally while you move through the exercises. Exhale during the most difficult phase of the exercise and inhale during the easiest.
  • If you start to lose your posture, stop and re-position yourself.
  • Always keep in mind: form is key to a successful workout.

The progressive resistance system makes it easy  to  measure progress in achieving fitness or therapy goals.  Start with a Limm Resistance Loop Band of  comfortable  resistance.  As you use the band, your  muscle  strength and endurance improves and you will feel the exercises become easier to do.  When you are ready for a more challenging workout, simply move to a higher resistance level band (i.e. shift from yellow  to green or blue to red).  This increases the intensity of the exercise.

  1. Oh my gosh, I had wondered about the different colors for the resistance bands! This is so helpful, Joan! I recently did one of these workouts with a friend and I’ll share to Facebook for her to see it too :)

    1. Great Christy – I tried the full workout today and I could feel the difference. I am starting with the green, light one, but think I should stick with the blue medium for my next stretch workout. I’m going to incorporate it into my Monday stretch too. It’s always good to mix it up a little after doing a routine for a while, so this is perfect for me. I am so glad that I was introduced to the Limm bands, otherwise, there are so many to choose from. Enjoy your workout!!
      :)
