Are resistance band really effective?
"What weighs more, a kilogram of steel or a kilogram of feathers?"
Let's cut to the chase.
Are resistance band really effective? Yes!
A 2019 study shows that training using resistance bands provides similar strength gains to using conventional gym equipment.
The main issue people are having with resistance bands is psychological, and it's related to the weight.
It reminds me that when we were kids we used to ask what weighs more, a kilogram of steel or a kilogram of feathers.
Talking about dumbbells, people automatically think the fact that it's heavier can help you build more muscle.
When it comes to building muscle, it's quite simple.
It's all about the TUT (time under tension).
As long as you're doing slow reps and increasing the tension every week or two, you will grow.
So yes, you can really grow muscle with resistance bands.
However, there's a catch.
In order to constantly increase the tension, you'd need a set of heavy duty resistance bands.
Most of those bands you'll find out there are flimsy 10lb-100lb cheap TPU rubber.
That's why athletes are going crazy over Torroband.
It's the world's first heavy-duty resistance bands with handles that can take up to 350lb of resistance without snapping. Plus, the patent-pending handles are out of this world.
