Band Stretching Tips – Best Of

Band stretching tips

Band stretching has easily been the #1 game changer for my over 40 adults

This is especially true for the guys that have been lifting weights for years and have loss of significant hip, shoulder and ankle flexibility. Those individuals that have committed to band hip and shoulder stretching at least 3 to 4 times per week, before or after workouts, have been able to keep their hip, shoulder and ankle flexibility at a level of someone 10 years younger.

They have also been able to eliminate nagging low back, knee, shoulder and hip pain that comes with keeping an active aging body looking, feeling and moving great.

What is Band Stretching?

Band stretching is a unique form of stretching that incorporates a controlled, active contract-relaxed approach while applying a variable accommodating resistance. This creates a passive over-pressure stretch to targeted muscles of the hip and shoulder. It makes muscles gradually to go where they can’t by passively and actively taking them into restricted areas of motion that traditional body weight stretching can’t accomplish.

Over the years I have done several videos on Band Stretching Tips that have taught 100’s how to successfully implement band stretching into their weekly workout routine. It is something I feel anyone that wants to eliminate nagging issues caused by inflexibility and create fitness longevity needs to implement.

In today’s blog I have brought together the best of those videos to help teach, train and inspire you to start or continue stretching with bands so you can turn back the clock and continue looking, feeling and moving your best.

    HEY DAVE…..we have been doing band flexibility, foam rolling and dynamic flexibility with my team…..BUT lately, I’m getting parents (and our head trainer) giving me flak about the lack of “static” stretching in our warm-ups. Essentially blaming THAT for their daughters injuries (WHICH are actually caused by their over involvement in club activities on top of track). Question: do you have any links/articles I can put out there re:benefits of band flex, etc vs static crap? Need some artillery support for my program. 🙂
    I also need to get pricing for about 8 handles for bands. My throwers are loving band stuff!!
    Thanks
    Tom

    Dae,

    I’ve been a customer since 2009. I love the bands and all they do for me at 47 years of age. I was wondering though, if I wanted to purchase everything in this package (BandStrong and Economy Fitness Package Bundle BandStrong and Economy Fitness Package) except the bands, what would it cost a long time “bander”?
