Flexibility Bands for Stretching

Flexibility bands are great because they store well, travel easily and can be added to most exercise routines. The added resistance challenges your muscles, which is great because they become very good at doing repetitive motions. Once the bands become worn, or worse, torn, be sure to replace them with new bands to avoid injury.

Barbells for Strength

The difference between these hand weights and the weights above is basically that these can be adjusted while the neoprene are a fixed weight. You can use the weights on a long or short bar to change your workout style and you can increase the number of plates as you progress.

Stair Stepper

Step Up’s are great for Endurance and Strength. Add risers to add height (check that it’s the right fit). You should look for a sturdy base, especially if you will use it for jump-ups and balance exercises.
