By March 1, 2018 No Comments

Booty Band’s – What is all the hype about?……

In the last few years we have seen a massive growth in the popularity of resistant band training “booty band’s” due to social media influences.  While this is fantastic to see, it is also just as distressing to watch bands being used incorrectly.

Physiotherapists have been using bands for sometime now aimed at rehabilitation or correcting muscle asymmetries, poor movement patterns and improving activation of a specific muscle group. They can also be utilised to improve lower-body strength, function and flexibility.

Unless you have been living under a rock or your not very social on the socials (pardon the pun) you would of seen the crazy buzz on Instagram & Facebook about “Booty Bands” so what is all the hype about?

Will I Grow my Glutes using Booty Bands?

If your goal is to build muscle ie: Increase the size of your buttocks and you are using bands as your primary tool then the answer is No! Sorry to burst your Peachy Bubble! The reason being is that they will not create enough of a stimulus or load to force the muscle to adapt and build size. However, resistant bands can be used for Glute Activation.  Pre-activation on leg day is vital, going through 3 or 4 exercises such as glute kickbacks or deviations of abduction movements are very beneficial. At Trained Physio & Fitness you will find us using Sweat Prep resistant bands with our clients.  Unlike your standard bands Sweat Prep contain 3 different bands set at different resistances.
