Bodylastics for Strength and Lean Muscle

Bodylastics Workouts

Bodylastics are a great home workout to build strength, increase lean muscle, and improve tone. Even better, the entire workout can be done in the comfort of your own home.

Bodylastics Bands
The technology of resistance bands has transformed the home workout, and really taken it to a different level. You don’t need barbells or a weight bench, although those are nice to have as well.

With this resistance band training, you can get a full body workout and experience the resistance and intensity of dumbbells and barbells. These resistance bands can work all major muscle groups at home, and when you’re done with your workout, you will feel like you just hit the gym.

Bodylastics for a Quick Workout or Injury Rehabilitation

BodylasticsWhen I was an Army Ranger I suffered a serious shoulder injury and went through 3 months of rehabilitation to heal my clavicle (shoulder blade). 

I had a Grade 1 separation, and although this is the least severe, it can be the most difficult to deal with because it does not warrant surgery to “fix it” and be done with it…it lingers.

The exercises I was given in rehab were various shoulder and arm rotations with elastic bands. My shoulder healed better than new, and I became a believer in these bands for strengthening weak muscles and joints.

Bodylastics takes this concept to new dimensions because the science is so well-developed and comprehensive. There are over 140 muscle building exercises you can do in your home.

  • Chest
  • Back
  • Biceps
  • Triceps
  • Shoulders
  • Abs
  • Legs

Bodylastics Resistance Bands

These resistance bands are the best technology on the market. They are elastic resistance tubing, and they provide very smooth and flowing resistance and are also very light. So they store easily and are not cumbersome.

There are different levels of resistance for the bands so that users of different strength levels will have the proper resistance level. There are over 140 different levels of tension, so no matter your strength or experience level, there are resistance bands for you.

Types of Exercises

There are thousands of workouts that are geared to building lean muscle, not just toning. So you can achieve the same effect as you can at the gym. I have always thought of elastic band training more for toning, but this system changed that belief for me. (1)

However, there are also toning programs within the program if your aim is to tone your muscles, and not build mass. I am a believer that the overbuilt, muscle head look is not the preferred look for most people. The ideal look for most is a hard, lean, angular look. This program can help you to achieve that goal as well.
