It’s hard to find exercise equipment as versatile as power bands. A staple tool in rehab training for several decades, power bands have grown in popularity as the go-to workout device for at-home muscle toning and trimming.
UFC Power Bands can be used to target specific muscle groups to provide a full body high resistance workout. Use them as booty bands for a glute toning and strengthening routine. Or just as easily incorporate them into a core workout, or to sculpt and define the arms and shoulders.
Perfect for leg day, back, chest & arm day, or even just to stretch, relax and recover, UFC Power Bands provide a wide range of functionality as well as being compact and lightweight enough for fitness on the go. Our bands come in a set of three, with varying resistance, so they’re great for all skill levels.
Below we have a quick, but challenging powerband workout designed for your entire body. So let’s stretch and get started.
Safety Note: Make sure your moves are slow and controlled, especially at high resistance. Don’t let the bands slip out of your grip and snap you!
