Here are a few ways you can make traditional exercises more intense without using heavier weights – adding exercise bands! The band increases the tension on the way up (concentric) and on the way down (eccentric). This will engage your muscles more throughout the movement and add an additional degree of difficulty to your workouts.

I’m going to show you 3 exercises to start with.

• Barbell Curl
• Dumbbell Bench Press
• Barbell Row

I’ll demonstrate more examples of using exercise bands in future videos!
