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.
