Resistance Strong

About the author

I started training with weights as a teen, over 40 years ago. My start was with isometrics and dumbbells, later on I joined a gym. The lockdown forced me back to home training with dumbbells and my bodyweight.

I had preconceived notions about resistance bands (e.g. the resistance curve), but decided to give them a try during a Christmas holiday in the mountains. The set of bands came with a book, but I was not impressed by the suggested exercises. Using an external anchor did not work in the small studio we rented. I figured out a set of self-anchored exercises instead.

Back home I could have masked up and returned to the gym, but continued my experiments with resistance bands as my body responded very favorably. The invention of the Band Box and the book "Resistance Strong" soon followed.
