  • Resistance training again...

    I actually wore out my original Thera-band...it got rubber fatigue and snapped on me. Three times. I didn't know my own strength!

    So I've invested in a new set of graduated-pull bands, one like I had, and two grades stiffer. LOVING them...why does such a simple exercise make me feel so GOOD?

    70 is the new 50--without the hot flashes!

    Goals: Feel good, be stronger, and hopefully kick that arthritis in the backside! Oh, yeah, and losing more weight would be okay, too.

    What exercises do you do with them-standard pulls?

      I imagine they are pretty standard...I've been using the one that broke for almost a year now, and just pulling however it feels good...over my head, at waist level, on each side, twisting at the waist, behind my neck, and as a stirrup-stretch for my legs while sitting down. The 3-pack came with some suggested uses too, and I'm going to try some of those...

        Sounds good Kate. I still do a couple of heavy pulls but focus more on the flexibility aspect. They are so portable I use them along with clubbells on lunch breaks and pushups and/or squats using the cables on a door knob for help with balance. They are indeed a very useful tool. Here is Ido Portal with a nice routine which I've used and benefited from:
        Basic Shoulder ROM and stabilization Routine - YouTube

        Scapula Mobilization Routine - YouTube

        And just for fun:

          Thanks for the links!

          Yep, I love the portability...I even tuck one in a suitcase when I travel. I don't take my little barbells!

          I fold them once or twice if I want more resistance.

          What's cool is that I had a weird muscle thing a couple of times...as if I'd torn a muscle in my upper arm just be turning a knob that was stuck. Now, no problems, knock wood!
