Don’t resist the resistance bands!

Posted by Jeremy Paris on March 26, 2009


Come see the workout system used by the best!

When I arrived tonight for my second shift of the day, I was greeted by a friend that took my advice and bought the T.O. Bands(Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Read this previous blog post, or click on the ad in the upper right corner of this page).

Now that he has them he will be starting one of the workout routines, and trying to stick to the diet as well.  I will be posting updates at least once a week on his progress.  FYI – I put the two 30 lb. bands on and couldn’t even do one standing bicep curl.  That rocks!!!

Have you tried working out with resistance bands yet?  If so, I would love to hear about your experiences.  Just leave a quick comment.

This workout will get you CUT…from the Cowboys

Wait...youre saying you dont lift wieghts?!?

Wait...you're saying you don't lift wieghts?!?

What?  Too soon?  🙂

 

Yeah, we have all heard by now that T.O. has been cut from the Cowboys.  I personally think it’s a mistake and hope my hometown team (Go Bills) gets a shake at him.  Yes, he’s controversial, he doesn’t color inside the lines…but he also caught more touchdown passes than Randy Moss in the last 3 years…more than anyone actually.  He’s fast, he’s got great hands, and nobody can argue his extremely high level of fitness.

After reading a blog about his diet, I decided to do a search to see what his workout was like.  I was FLOORED when I saw that he doesn’t workout with weights.  That’s right…he uses resistance bands.  Crazy right?!?  Furthermore…he has his own branded workout bands out there.  I just HAD to see these.  How different can resistance bands be…what did he do, sign his name on them with a Sharpie?  😛

Yeah…I was wrong again.  These bands are freakin GENIUS!  I can’t believe nobody has done this before.  The bands have carabeaner-type clips on the ends and clip to the handles.  Then you get a bunch of different size bands.  So you can use one 7 lb. band, or a 7 lb. and a 30 lb, or….actually tons of different combinations that give you 1 – 2 lb increments all the way up to working out at T.O.’s level.  The best part about it is that you can buy the package for like $50. 

I immediately decided that I was going to start endorsing this product.  I am giving serious thought to stopping my P90X routine dead in it’s tracks and jump on to this one.  One of the main reasons is that I don’t have to do a 90 minute workout every day.  If I only have 15 min….I can workout a whole body part fully.  The  other benefit is that they are so small and light that I can take them with me in a backpack and workout anywhere I happen to be.  Want more info?  Click below!!!
