Resistance bands

Resistance bands produce a progressively increasing training resistance and are perfect for strength and mobility training. Strength training with elastic bands ist joint-friendly because the maximum resistance of pushing exercises is reached in the most stable position (lock out). Our alphabands + add-ons expand the possibilities significantly, are anti-bacterial, and suitable for allergy sufferers.

Resistance band training – full body training with fitness bands

Versatile full body training with elastic bands

Elastic resistance bands are universally usable and offer applications for every athlete and every training situation. Whether it is strength or mobility training, as the training resistance or support – the 1 m long powerbands make your training more effective and more diversified. They enable you to train your body in different ways.

Resistance bands as support

Fitness bands are often used as support for difficult exercises like pull-ups to make the exercises easier. If you fix them to the pull-up bar and position a knee in them, the elastic band will help pull you up when it contracts back to its normal length. Especially for beginners, this is a helpful support when they can’t do a full rep on their own yet. However, by using it simply as support you will not use the full potential of the resistance band. They are also perfect as training resistance.

Strength training with powerbands

If you compare powerbands with barbells or dumbbells two differences become apparent. For one, you can only work against gravity when using weights, so generally you lift the weight upwards. Resistance bands will also create a resistance in horizontal movements in pulling or pushing direction. Secondly, the resistance of fitness bands increases in relation to their elongation. This makes resistance band training very joint-friendly. During bench press, for example, the resistance is highest when both arms are fully extended (lock out). In starting position, when the shoulders are in the weakest position, the resistance is lowest.

The evolution of resistance bands

alphabands by aerobis are the logic progression from common resistance bands. They are made of polyurethane, not latex. Thus, they are best suited for allergy sufferers, anti-bacterial, easy to clean, and extremely durable. Additionally, alphabands are smaller and lighter than latex bands. The light-blue bands are made in Germany and unfold their full potential in combination with the alphaband add-ons.

Get a grip

In combination with the add-ons, alphabands offer the most versatile and comfortable resistance band training. Due to the relatively small size alphabands can be connected to accessories like handles or an anchor sling by way of a carabiner. Common powerbands are too big for this, especially in stronger resistances. The anchor sling should be seen as an essential because it allows you to connect alphabands to any holding structure. With the anchor sling you can even use several alphabands at the same time to better adjust the training resistance to your needs.

More power to you

Another essential for alphaband training should be a handle like the Double Grip Handle. The extra-long handle can be held with both hands simultaneously and offers the greatest exercise variety for resistance band workouts. If you prefer working with two handles, the 2x Grip Handle is your add-on of choice. The Flex Handle add-on, on the other hand, is the best option to connect alphabands to your feet.

… on the alphabands. Sure, they might be a little more expensive then ordinary power bands on the market. But the quality and optics are (like with all aerobis products) exceptional. Especially the fast and easy change of different resistance levels in combination with of the grip and carabiner allow a truly “fluid” training experience. Only through the grip handle users can fully develop enough force without having pressure points or friction on the hands. But even without the grip handle the bands are very comfortable. In my courses the bands have received raving praise several times: “How cool is that? I have never seen this before. This way strength training becomes a lot more fun.”
