Ultra Heavy Resistance
Most sets come in light, medium, and heavy resistance, but this figure eight band takes your workout to a new level with ultra heavy resistance. Some machines at the gym can be tricky to figure out, but all you'll need for a five minute full-body workout is your resistance band, yoga mat, stability ball, and two light dumbbells. If you're on the go and don't have room in your bag for a lot of equipment, just take along the band and you'll still break a sweat.

There's no need to spend hundreds of dollars on a machine when you can get a resistance tube rower for a fraction of the cost—not to mention it's more compact, too. You can use it while sitting down like you would with a traditional rowing machine, or switch things up and use it while standing. Pack this band in your weekender bag the next time you travel so you can conveniently exercise at the hotel or the airport.

Full Range Resistance
Complete with ankle straps, this resistance band's circular design allows full range of motion for a more versatile workout. Blue is heavy (15 to 20 pounds) resistance, but you may want to start with green (light) or yellow (very light) and work your way up if you're new to resistance training. This band is a great option on days when you don't have access to weights and want to sneak in a leg workout.
