One of the most frequently asked questions we receive here at Belus Active is “which resistance band do I use, for what?”. After all, not all bands are created equal. Each type listed here can be incorporated into your workout routines in different ways. All of our resistance bands can be used together or separately to help you develop a fitter, healthier body. The best part is that Belus bands can be used whether you prefer weight training, bodyweight exercises or cardio!
Resistance Loop Bands
Loop bands are ideal for people who are looking to get a little more out of their regular workout. They’re easy to carry with you, wherever you prefer to work out and they can be wrapped around many areas of the body to increase resistance to any workout. For example, place a loop around your legs when taking a walk to really turn up the heat.
Because these bands can focus specific muscles, they are ideal for bodyweight exercises. Each band holds a different resistance level, which can make these the perfect pairing for both newcomers and old pro’s. They can also be stacked together to really push what would otherwise be an average workout.

Resistance Bands with Handles
Ideal for those who can struggle with grip, these bands create a more comfortable resistance workout. As your hands can rest in a more natural position, they can help beginners with posture control. Improving your form when working out is essential. Having the right form means that you are less likely to injure yourself during a workout but also that you’re working out the right muscles during your exercises.
Resistance bands with handles are best for workouts that require self-anchoring. This is when you have a part of your body on the ground, continuously during your workout. An example of this is holding the middle of the resistance band under your feet while you stand upright, then perform bicep curls while grasping the handles.
Flat Resistance Bands
One of the most common bands, flat resistance bands will often be the first image that comes to mind for those who are new to resistance training. These bands are ideal for utilising your environment while working out. Because they are open-ended, they can be attached to anything that makes your routine more convenient!
A great example of this would be to tie one end to a bench and tying the other end to your ankle. Standing perpendicular to the bench, perform a lateral leg raise. With this exercise, you can work out your legs without the need for a cable machine. This can save you time as well as money, since you could literally perform this movement anywhere.
