The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette recently had an article on elastic resistance training, “Resistance bands grow in popularity.”  The article describes how physical therapists use the bands to rehabilitate body parts from the shoulder to the ankle, and from patients in wheelchairs to professional athletes. Fitness professionals suggest elastic resistance bands are increasing in popularity over free weights or weight machines. Studies have shown that Thera-Band resistance is as effective as weight machines.  The second edition of Strength Band Training featuring Thera-Band resistance is also featured in the article.
