Our Picks: How we picked the best resistance bands

Find out how we picked and ranked our top seven.

1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for resistance bands

1.1 Types

Resistance bands are not limited to flat bands or tubes. These two are the most common types, but apart from that, there are three more types. Let's know about them all in detail.

1. Tube Band

Tube resistance bands, as the name suggest, are pipe-like and have handles on both ends. You can easily anchor them to the door or a bar/pole.

Tube resistance bands are suitable for programs like P90X and exercise such as chest presses, curls, back rows, shoulder presses, etc. This type of band works on all your muscle groups. Therefore, they are an excellent alternative for those who don’t go to a gym or those who like to train outdoors.

Usually, a set of tube bands offer 10-50 pounds of resistance.

Benefits

  • Muscle strength and endurance

  • Hypertrophy

  • Improves range of motion

  • Fat burning

  • Rehabilitation

  • Low impact on joints

2. Flat Band

Flat bands, also known as power resistance bands and loop bands, are like massive rubber bands. You can use them for a variety of purposes such as warm-up, bodyweight assistance, bodyweight resistance, full-body workouts, physical therapy, static stretching, and for added resistance, you can couple them with free weights. Furthermore, just like tube bands, you can also anchor them to pole/bar for pull and push exercises. All in all, flat loop bands are versatile.

Usually, a set of power resistance bands offer 5-175 pounds of resistance.

Benefits

  • Muscle strength and endurance

  • Hypertrophy

  • Explosiveness

  • Balance

  • Coordination

  • Stability

  • Fat burning

  • Rehabilitation

  • Low impact on joints

  • Flexibility

  • Improves range of motion

  • Multiplanar exercises and unilateral movements

3. Mini Band

Mini bands are the same as power resistance loop bands. The only difference is they are much shorter and broader. New designs available in the market consists of a fabric covering the bands for added comfort and to stop them from rolling up.

Mini bands are usually used to increasing strength and stability in your lower body. For the upper body, the band is suitable for specific exercises. Also, you can use them for weight training.

Mini bands are great for getting that extra activation and tension in the hips during squats, hip thrusts and leg extensions. Also, mini bands can target shoulder complexes. These prove to be great if you are into callisthenics.

4. Figure 8 Band

Figure 8 bands are shaped the same as their name suggests. Same as tube bands, they also have handles placed at the top and bottom of figure 8. You can stretch them as per your need, to be able to target both your upper and lower body. For lateral movements, these bands can be used similarly to mini bands. And for machine and dumbbell exercises, you can use them the same as tube resistance bands.
Usually, a set of Figure 8 resistance bands offer 8-20 pounds of resistance.

Benefits

  • Physical therapy

  • Rehabilitation

  • Weight loss

  • Muscle toning

  • Muscle strength and endurance

  • Stability through unilateral movements

5. Therapy Band

Therapy bands are thin and very long (up to 7 feet). Like power resistance bands, they do not loop. Being therapy bands, they are primarily used to regain strength after an injury or by older people who need low impact workout.

They prove effective while doing those exercises that need a little added resistance, such as Pilates and fat burner workouts. Also, many women use light therapy bands for muscle toning. They can also be used for warm-ups and static stretching at the end of an activity.

Usually, a set of therapy bands offer 3-10 pounds of resistance.

Benefits

  • Increases the stretch

  • Improves mobility/range of motion

  • Physical therapy

  • Flexibility

  • Rehabilitation

  • Weight loss

  • Muscle toning

1.2 Resistance Level

No one used just one resistance band. You will need different size band either for different exercise or different body parts. So, you can’t get results simply by getting the lightest or the heaviest band only. For example, your legs have more strength than your arms, and thus you will need at least two different bands for the lower body and upper body, respectively. It is recommended to have a minimum of three bands: light, medium, and heavy.

All in all,

  1. If you’re new to resistance training or are recovering from an injury, choose bands with lighter resistance levels.

  2. If you’re healthy and have been into training your muscles, choose bands with higher resistance levels.

1.3 Keep It Simple

We read in the first feature>type that there are five types of resistance bands available. But the question is, are all of them great or useful?

We suggest using a single band type. For example, don’t use a loop and mini band together. There are other types of the band, like circular bands, figure eights, and therapy. They are least suggested because they have specific uses and aren’t easy to use, especially if you are a beginner. Their unique designs can often cause a discrepancy in your workout routine.

1.4 Handles

Tube bands and figure 8 bands come with handles, but these handles prove helpful only when made of good quality material. Good handles mean having a solid inner core with comfortable padding on the outside. They should not be larger than usual or made of hard plastic. Also, they should offer a firm grip and comfort at the same time.

1.5 Accessories

Resistance bands are unique in the way that you can attach them to the staircase, pole, door for different workouts. You can simply wrap the band around for exercises like chest presses or seated rows. So, if you get just the band, you will be able to do only a limited number of exercises. The ankle cuffs, different handles, a door anchor, additional bands add some variety to your workout routine.

1.6 Durability

For a long life, durability is essential while buying a set of resistance band. Therefore, get bands that are made of high-grade latex or natural rubber. And if they have anti-snap technology included, that's the cherry on the cake!

3.2 How does a resistance band works?

Resistance bands are made of anti-tear elastic rubber that applies external resistance while using them, and this extra resistance targets your muscles. Interestingly, the more you stretch the band, the more they resist you. So, for example, if you are using a band for a bicep curl, the resistance will be maximum near the top, putting more stress on your biceps and work them more.

3.3 Does a resistance band target both lower and upper body muscles?

Yes. Resistance bands make any workout more challenging by adding that extra resistance and resulting in muscle expansion. They can be used to target almost every muscle in your body, be it lower or upper body muscles, including biceps, triceps, shoulders.

3.4 Can I alter the resistance of a band?

Yes, you can very much alter the resistance of a band in the following ways:

  • You can reduce resistance by moving closer to the anchor point and move farther to increase resistance.

  • To reduce the length and increase resistance, simply loop the band around a bar or your foot.

  • Adding one more band to your workout is a great idea for resistance increase.

  • Interlock two bands at their midpoint to improve both the length and resistance.

3.5 How can I stop my resistance band from rolling off?

Resistance bands generally roll off when they’re not of the correct size for you. Therefore, aim to get a band that is of appropriate length and width. In other words, it should neither be too tight nor too loose while using it. Also, wear them in the same place on both legs or arms. Mismatched positions can also cause them to roll off.
