6 Resistance Band Stretches to Increase Your Flexibility

May 2nd, 2017|

There’s no question that our favorite things here at 12 Minute Athlete are quick efficient workouts and building new cool skills.

Yet if you want to continue getting stronger, fitter, and increase your athletic skill set, keeping your muscles open and flexible is crucial. Not only will it help you avoid getting injured and decrease recovery time, staying flexible will also help you be able to actually do some of those cool skills you’ve always wanted to do (bridges, anyone?).

I’ll admit, flexibility is one of my least favorite things to work on. So in my quest to become more flexible in the least amount of time possible, I’ve really fallen in love with band-assisted stretching.

Using a band along with your regular stretches can help you get the extra boost that you’d get with partner-assisted stretching, but without having to have another person there. It helps you get the most flexibility boost in the shortest amount of time, which as you know tends to be what we aim for here.

Although most resistance bands will work for these stretches, I’ve been super impressed with Rubberbanditz bands for both stretching and helping to build up strength for different exercises (for stretching, I like the red and orange bands the best).

Not only are these bands super versatile and nearly impossible to break, they’re just a really cool company overall and play a big part in the calisthenics community that I love. Check them out if you haven’t already!

Of course, if you don’t have a band, you can also do most of these stretches with a towel—don’t let excuses hold you back from reaching your goals!

Here are 6 resistance band stretches to help increase your flexibility:
