    How Do I Offset Load Exercise Bands?

    Hi Everyone,

    Question: How do I offset load exercise bands? This is easy with dumbbells or barbells, but how do I do it with non-loop, no-handle exercise bands?

    Someone told me to use two resistance bands on one side and one on the other, but I'm not following how that's supposed to work unless I tie the free half band on one side to something, which would be cumbersome for the different exercises that I do.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Utilize something like a dog leash or a dog collar to make a unilateral device to use the motions one handed.

    Is there a way to do this for two handed resistance band exercises?

    I believe there was some database migration issue that wiped out my old posts when I went fairly inactive after college in 2012 :|

    You'd probably have to alter the attachment point of the bands on your arms. For example, with band pull aparts, hold one band in your left hand and loop the other band around your right forearm, then it will be harder with your left arm.

    - Interesting, I'll give that a try. I will probably just switch to dumbbells' as well. Thanks!
