Description

The Theraband Resistance Band Loop is a continuous 3″ wide loop elastic band used for a variety of applications, particularly lower body exercise to increase strength and balance. The band loops are an effective and efficient way to strengthen muscles and has the added benefits of convenience, portability, and eliminates the need to tie traditional bands, thus prolonging life and reducing additional wear.
Using the resistance band loop is an effective way to improve strength & flexibility in glutes, knees and hips. The continuous loop provides a comfortable alternative to tying flat resistance bands into loops, helping eliminate wear and tear, and it can be used in the clinic, at home, or on-the-go. The band loops come in four resistance levels, including yellow, red, green, and blue.

Size: 8” or 20.5cm

  • The yellow loop is the first of four resistance levels and best for rehabilitation and those beginning an exercise program
  • The red loop is the second of four resistance levels and best for rehabilitation and for light resistance training
  • The green loop is the third of four resistance levels and great for rehabilitation and heavier resistance training
  • The blue loop is the fourth of four resistance levels, and great for upper and lower body exercise

 

Uses

The Theraband Resistance Band Loop are used as an effective way to improve strength & flexibility in glutes, knees and hips. They can be used in the clinic, at-home, or on-the-go.

 

Application

Using Theraband 8” Loops:
• Before each exercise session, inspect the resistance bands for defects or tears
• As with any exercise program, muscle soreness may be experienced over the first few days. If your pain should persist for more than four days, consult your physician. Do not exercise while experiencing pain
• Ensure that bands are securely fitted and/or anchored to accessories, and around the feet when applicable, during use.
• With standing exercises, body alignment is critical. Square the shoulders, contract the abdominals and relax the knees – be sure to practice the safest posture possible by maintaining the natural spinal curve
• For beginners, perform exercises without resistance band loops until you are comfortable, and then begin exercises with the Band Loops
• Perform two to three sets of 8 – 12 repetitions of each exercise
• Rest between sets
• Gradually increase your sets and repetitions – when you are comfortable performing three sets of 10-15 repetitions, gradually progress to the next colour of Thera-Band Resistance Band Loop
