In today’s world, resistance bands have become one of the most popular methods for workouts. These bands are widely used by individuals who are fitness freaks as well as people who are affected with multiple sclerosis. With the use of these bands we can keep the blood flowing through our legs, and strengthen our muscles. While sitting at a desk or in a wheel chair, exercising with these bands and balls can be done.
Physical therapists have given me these bands, unfortunately I didn’t plan a routine to use them, and my muscles atrophied. Now years later, I’m ready to build my muscles again.
If you don’t have these bands, I bumped into this great website, Amazon.com that has wonderful exercise equipment! Amazon.com is selling the resistance bands right here. These bands are simple, easy to use and simple to store. Resistance bands can tone and sculpt each and every muscle which you want to strengthen.
The compact size of these bands makes them convenient to carry while traveling and easier to store.
The balls come in different sizes also, for now I use a ball the size of a soccer ball. For your convenience, you can purchase the balls right here!
My personal Trainer, Holly Fulford-Jeffery suggested I start by wrapping a stretch band around my legs, then stretch my legs apart as far as I can 10 times then pause. Do it again and that will be 2 sets of 10.
She then suggested I set the straps aside, grab a resistance ball, put it in between my legs and squeeze my legs together as hard as I can 10 times, pause and do it again making 2 sets of 10.
We need to do this at least two times a day. If we keep our band and ball right by the chair we often sit in, for me it’s at my desk, it will be convenient. I am amazed that after only a few weeks of doing this everyday, my legs are significantly stronger.
We can’t control everything, but often we can control how hard we try!
