What are resistance bands for?
Resistance Bands, also referred to as Hip circle bands, are excellent resistance added to leg workouts and even cardio. These bands are a must for anyone getting serious about fitness. Bands can help increase mobility, strengthen the hip flexors and glutes. They also are great to keep the knees turned out when doing squats and deadlifts. Many times they are used during warm up as well to activate the hip flexors and glutes.
