Maximize your strength, speed, and power through the use of resistance bands and tubing. As a complete workout on their own or a supplement to free weights and machines, strength bands are the ultimate tool for customizing workouts and isolating muscles. And the portable bands and tubing make the perfect travel workout.
Strength Band Training shows how to use resistive bands and tubing in 106 exercises addressing every major muscle group. These exercises have been used by strength professionals and many top athletes because the bands and tubing allow you to add resistance in multiple directions—something free weights and machines can't do. As a result, your resistance routine can simulate sport demands, strengthening core and supporting muscles or targeting specific rehabilitation needs.
Easy to adjust, bands and tubing are designed to provide resistance for users at any level of strength and ability. Add Strength Band Training to your conditioning program for the most complete and versatile workouts possible.

Mark Verstegen, MS, CSCS President and Founder, Athletes’ PerformanceFrom the Author:
I would like to address several issues in Mr. Abraham's review and present the facts:
1. The lack of "documentation" was because this book was written as a "how to" rather than a "why". We specifically state in the first chapter that more scientific information and documentation is available in our textbook, "The Scientific & Clinical Application of Elastic Resistance", rather than burden the reader with scientific details in an practical book.
2. The bibliography in the book is provided to recognize the origin of some of the exercises from Europe (which happen to be German books), as we stated in the preface. These references are NOT citing "original research", which as stated before, is not included in this practical book, but instead included in a separate text.
3. Hygenic (not "Hygienic") Corporation is an American company based in Akron Ohio, not Germany.
4. Phil Page's position with Thera-Band products was noted in his bibliography. We also recognize the support of Hygenic Corporation in the Acknowledgements.
