  • resistance bands?

    I'm looking to buy some resistance bands , however the local stores do not sell strong ones. Could anyone recommend me of a brand and I'm looking to buy a light, medium, and a heavy one. I don't know how many pounds resistance bands go up too but I would like at least up to 70 lbs.

    Thanks

    Combine resistance bands with free weights. For instance, when doing dumbbell flyes, wrap the bands around the seat and hold in each and while holding the weight. Combining bands and weights really tears up the muscles.

      Go to amazon and do a search for Bodylastics Max tension.

        I don't really have any free weights as of right now, I don't even know what dumbbell flyes are but thanks for the advice =]

          I use to and they will give you a hell of a workout. I had surgery last week on my knee so I'm not going to be doing anything for a while. But when I start back I'm going to use them again. When you are working out to get into academy shape all you really need is a pair of good running shoes and access to a public park to do pull ups and dips. Running, calisthenics, pull ups/dips and one dumb bell for turkish get ups is all you need to get into great shape for a police academy. The tension bands would also be a nice/cheap addition. You can get them for around 60 bucks.
