Maybe the heaviest thing we carry is not our weights but our feelings. From this photo, it's evident I have zero weights and zero feelings.

Oh ya know just doing typical white people things like building tents, canoeing and hiking...while trying not to die like a beached whale from your lack of cardiovascular ability and gaining 40 lbs after your show. 😅

Resistance Bands - Useful Tool or Fad?

The fitness industry is all about trying to find the latest “thing” to get results from waist trainers to altitude masks. Few tools actually pass the test of time.
In my honest opinion, the resistance band is one of those few. One must keep in mind though, like any tool, it’s up to the individual using it to properly apply it.
Versatility, affordability, and portability are the greatest aspects of the resistance band.
Due to their light weight, they can be incorporated into anyone’s gym equipment arsenal with relative ease unlike heavy chains or micro progression plates. 
There functions and use come in as many forms as the bands themselves which you can find in every colour under the rainbow with almost any peak tension level you want.
Firstly, from a simplistic aspect, bands can be used independently as a cheap and affordable workout tool for at-home or “on-the- road” use for a quick and effective workout or even backstage at a contest to pump up.

For dynamic mobility work they can be used for proprioceptive neurofacilitation (PNF) stretching. They offer a means to optimize and efficiently work on range of motion to reach one’s mobility goals. 
Bands can also be incorporated into various linear resistance exercises like a leg press to change the resistance curve offering a different stimulus to the exercise. 
In turn, this can help reduce the load during ranges of the motion which may increase the risk of injury or pain related to joints, tendons, and ligaments while
optimizing the load during ranges which stimulate the goal muscle being targeted.

Lastly, bands can help keep peak tension on the targeted muscles during full extension ranges of motion to enhance blood flow and metabolic demand. 
These are only a few examples for band applicability and knowing the importance of when and what bands to use for different goals. 
Side note - Although not resistance bands, various other fitness tools take the elastic principle into play and offer a wide variety of other benefits. Such as voodoo bands for occlusion style blood flow warm ups.
