Hi I'm here to tell you today about how to use exercise bands. Exercise bands come in a variety of resistance. They're great for using them to add to your exercise workout just to add a bit of resistance. The way you tell how much resistance a band has is just by simply pulling it a little and comparing it to the other bands. This band had the least resistance. This band is very good to use for exercise that are small in their movements. Something like this would be a good exercise to do with this low resistance band. The next band was my highest resistance. This band is good to use when you want to stretch something and I'll show you that in just a minute and the middle band is our mid resistance and this would be if the heavier band is too difficult for you to use it can also be used for stretching and I'll show you how to stretch out your leg, a good exercise for this. Just put the band around the bottom of the feet making sure that it's stretched out and not slumped and this is a hamstring stretch so lengthening that other leg and pulling this leg towards you will give you a nice hamstring stretch here. You can also take this out to the side as long as this hip stays down and you can also bring it across your body for an IT band stretch, this hip stays down and finally we can also stretch our piriformis so bring the other leg up, cross it over, pull the band towards you and you should feel it in your butt area. Those are different exercises that you can do using exercise bands.
