The great thing about this form of exercise, in my opinion, is that it’s the safest and one of the most effective ways to train, especially if you are an aging athlete or someone who must extremely minimize their risk of injury in a workout program. The reason that it is so safe is that instead of gravity or machines that utilize weight, bands work off tension which is much safer for the bodies musculature. In the past the bands were made that if they snapped or broke it could be rather unpleasant. however, the bands nowadays are made to minimize the amount of tension released when they do break. Leaving a far less chance of being “slapped” so to speak.
