    How Do Stretch with Resistance Bands

    Meathedz!

    The following are some videoclips by Coach Dick Hartzell, who is almost 70 years old can do a split cold turkey. They are part of a video series made available by Elite Fitness on youtube for stretching using resistance bands. The entire playlist can be seen here.

    I've been watching these for some time, and I've decided to put the ones I've found most useful in a given order. I think following the exercises in the order given below make up a good stretching/strenghtening routine.

    Many of these routines can be done with a rope or non-stretching bands, but some do require some sort of stretch band to be effective. Watch them and see if anything in there can be incorporated into your routines.

    Enjoy.

    I started watching the first one, and it physically hurts me when he does the stretch. Damn I need to work on my flexibility. Good stuff, thanks!

    At last - someone else who can spot the value of a self assisted exercise like using yoga bands.

    Got a basic set about a month ago now - an yup! they are good for so many things flexwise.

    One of the things I use then for, is for practising side-kicks with resistance.

    you have one end over your foot, the other you hold in the the hand that's opposet to the foot being used to kick (left foot - right hand or vice versa).
    Then you go for your kick..

    in a slow and gentle fashion - (a snappy side kick without a target can be a bit of a jolt to the joints).

    AS you extend your leg, your posture should adjust as it would do to perform the said kick at normal speed ( IE your body acts as a counter balance to your leg - your opposite arm moves back with elbow bent slightly)

    because the arm moves away from the opposet leg and your leg is extending - the band gets tighter.
    Repeating this for ten counts or however many you feel happy doing without falling into an overworked heap, then swap sides and follow the same proceedure.
    I found using the band like this seems to gain me a better posture when doing the kick at speed... and my outer thigh muscles feel more 'used'
    It may not be an exercise that anyone who's been doing a strike orientated MA for a long time will really say 'wow - that's worked wonders a miracle!!'
    for the rest of us mortals though - it does help in getting a bit more balance and tone during kicking.

    At some point I may put a video on youtube just to show how it works...
    for now hope this little brief explaination is enough to be getting on with.

    Hey, just thought I'd mention that all these videos have been taken down. Does anyone know of other good videos?

    They aren't 'yoga bands' and everyone in the world of serious physicalism has probably used them at least once.

    Dammit you're right (why'd I type that).... I do understand there's a difference...

    'yoga' bands are the puny low budget version... (overlaying a few sets at a time works a little better but it's still not the genuine article ).

    Many yoga sites seem to advocate using resistance bands (they also sell them - surprise, surprise).... maybe that's where my confusion came from.

    Think it would be an idea to invest in the genuine article.... pretty sure there's an exercise available using resistance bands that would help with injury recovery/reconditioning of weakened muscle groups.

    Thanks for pointing that weird typo out...

    I thought you meant by 'yoga bands' that yoga invented the practice, which is definitely not true.

    I see... Well, glad that's cleared up then...

    Trouble is, the more I looked about on the net and that.... the more I'm thinking of buying some...



    TBH they vary a hell of alot in price.
    It's the kind of thing it seems best to see in the flesh, so I can actually see what I'm getting.

    IronWoody and Jumpstretch make very good bands.

    If you're feeling cheap your local foam/rubber supplier probably has some kind of high-tensile rubber you could use.
