It is easily available, and its portability makes it one of the most bought fitness equipment worldwide. Whether it's back, shoulder, or hamstring -- resistance band can cater to all of them and with different tensions, it challenges your muscles and pushes them to their limit.

Types of band
Different brands comes out with different designs, targeting different groups of customers. Long loop bands are suitable for full body workout, ideal for everyone from all walks of life; short loop bands are usually 15cm - 20cm long, great for quick isolation workout for glutes and hamstrings; and there are straight bands that are thinner and has two ends, which is a helpful assisting tool for most patients that have mobility issue.

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart with both feet on the resistance band. Grasp the band with one hand and hold it with your arm down at your side, palm facing forwards. Bend at the elbow and lift your arm toward your shoulders until you get a good biceps contraction. Then lower slowly back to the start. Do all your reps on one arm, then switch.
Hold the resistance band in both hands, arms stretched straight out to the sides at chest height, with the band going behind your back. Press the band straight out in front of you, bringing your hands together with your arms fully extended, keeping your elbows up throughout and squeezing your chest muscles as you press. Slowly return to the starting position.
Stand with your knees slightly bent and your feet shoulder-width apart. Grip a shoulder-width section of the resistance band with both hands in front of you at shoulder height. Keeping your arms straight, pull the band out and back until your shoulder blades contract. Slowly return to starting position.
