A lot of people think that they need to be in a gym pumping iron just to get fit. Images of old school body builders continue to influence their way of thinking. But the reality is that you can achieve fitness in many ways with some methods not requiring any heavy lifting at all.
For example, a person can use resistance bands. These could be the rubberized bands that stretch when you pull on them to provide several pounds of load. You could also use fixed nylon straps that use bodyweight as load. You can vary the resistance by changing your body’s angle, distance, and position with respect to the anchor point.
You can surprise yourself with impressive resistance band transformation after months of hard work. Look into example exercises so you can understand how it works. Try them out at home.
