This 45 MINUTE class will use resistance bands/tubing, your body-weight, dumbbells, and medicine balls to get a total body strength and conditioning workout. Resistance tubes offer numerous exercise options. As such, the resistance tube can be used by itself or with a partner to add additional exercise options. So, whether being used for adding muscle tone, muscle strength, burning fat or simply increasing flexibility, resistance tubes are a very easy way to add something different to your daily exercise program.

In addition, rubber stretch exercise bands are an effective alternative to free weights and resistance machines for toning and strengthening your muscles.

The bands come in varying levels of tension, making it possible to progressively increase the amount of tension you're using. When you're just starting out with strength training, you might use a band designated for beginners. Over time though, your muscles will become adapted to the additional load. To continue achieving the muscle overload that results in muscle growth, you'll need to move up to a band with even more tension. It's the same with free weights; when lifting a certain weight becomes easy, it's time to move up to a more challenging weight.
