So whats the secret product you might ask? Well, its actually pretty simple and you have probably used a similar product before... Even if its cold right now, we must all re-evaluate where our goals are and where we want to be by the time summer rolls through (sooner than later hopefully!).

The secret is out: Resistance bands

And NO, not the cute tube resistance bands that you find in the big shopping centers with the "convenient" little handles that will break in a month, we are talking about the HEAVY DUTY, fat shredding, muscle toning, full body workout resistance bands. 

**Side note, the resistance tubing that you can find in your big shopping marts are extremely UNSAFE. Please, do not use these in your workout routine. They have been known to snap without warning because the main wear point is covered and hidden to the user, so you will never know exactly how much wear and tear is on the band. 

We here at RAW Built Technologies have found a way to bring back the potential of resistance bands as a workout tool and create a better, longer lasting product that will withstand years of your abuse and dedication. 

Now you may ask, what is so special about these RAW Built bands that I can't find elsewhere? Besides the cool colors, our product has some very exciting new improvements.

1.) We start by using 7 layers of latex rubber to prevent snapping and increase durability. Even though all 7 pieces are fused together, they still provide individual resistance per layer which increases the efficiency of your workout.

2.) Next, we completed the circle. Unlike the resistance tubing and other resistance bands, our bands complete a full circle and therefore eliminate any weak points that could cause the user any harm. This also makes it easier to mount for your workout routine.

3.) Lastly, we proudly placed our RAW Built name on the bands to let you know that the bands come with our RAW Built LIFETIME Satisfaction Guarantee to eliminate the fear of buying online. If for any reason these bands are not what you are looking for, please return them so you can spend your money on more junk food or a more comfy couch!

Each band is either sold separately or as a set; catering to the needs of YOU, the proud new owner. We have dropped the price of all of our resistance bands to help make sure everyone has the same opportunity in 2017 to get their life in shape (and maybe their abs too)! You can check out the bands on our featured sale page

Still unsure? We have composed a list of some basic resistance band exercises that will show you the versatility of the bands.

1.) Resistance Band Squats

  1. Start by stepping on the resistance band with both feet shoulder width apart.
  2. Hold the resistance band at shoulder level with both hands. Start into a full squat while holding the band at shoulder height.
  3. Return to the starting position and repeat.

2.) Resistance Band Bent Over Rows

  1. Start by placing the band under one foot and stepping backwards with the other foot.
  2. Bend over keeping your back flat and stop at a 45 degree angle.
  3. Pull the bands up towards your waist keeping your elbows in close together.
  4. Squeeze your shoulder blades together when performing rowing motion.

3.) Alternate Lying Chest Presses

  1. Lie on your back with the resistance band under your back and in front of your chest. Hold the band in front of your chest with both hands shoulder length apart.(as if you are going to do a weighted press)
  2. Start by pressing one arm up towards the ceiling and then return to the starting position. Repeat with the other arm.

4.) Diagonal Woodchoppers

Starting Position: Loop the band under your left foot and grasp the other end. Keep hands together and extend arms down towards left foot.

  1. Bring band up and away in a wood chopping motion.
  2. During this motion your feet stay stationary and you rotate at your trunk. Repeat this motion for the desired repetitions and then repeat in the opposite direction.

5.) Triceps Extension 

  1. Start by holding the band in one hand and placing that hand behind your back.
  2. Now grab the other end of the band with the arm that is over your head.
  3. Extend the top elbow until your arm is fully extended.
  4. Return to the starting position and repeat for the prescribed repetitions.

6.) Biceps Curls 

  1. Stand with feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent, and at a staggered stance.
  2. Step onto middle of the band with back foot or both feet.
  3. Start position: Grasp ends with underhand grip (palms facing forward) with arms hanging down at sides. Elbows should be close to sides.
  4. Flex at the elbows and curl band up to approximately shoulder level. Keep elbows close to sides throughout movement.
  5. Return to start position.
    Remember to keep back and head straight in a neutral position throughout movement. Shoulders should be stabilized by squeezing shoulder blades together slightly - only the elbow joint should be moving.

If you need help deciding which band is right for you, please contact us. We would love to break down the resistance level and what each band is best used for! (Either the black band or the purple band will be best for the exercises listed above).


May your day be filled with laughter and protein,
