Aylio offers the premium heavy-duty resistance bands. All bands use ultra-durable latex rubber, giving them a great stretch without allowing them to snap. All connectors are double stitched for added safety and the premium heavy-duty metal clips are used to withstand very large levels of tension for our advanced users.
When it comes to choosing a set of resistance bands, you can not go wrong will the Aylio home exercise system. It includes a door attachment (very important) and storage pouch but most importantly, it features a unique clipping system, giving users the advantage of choosing to work with one, two, three, or four bands simultaneously. This is crucial because different muscle groups require various levels of resistance and the clipping system allows for easy adjustment to accommodate all exercises and fitness levels. Everyone from beginners to professional athletes and bodybuilders can enjoy and benefit from these bands. Aylio resistance bands are also the most durable and comfortable bands I have ever tried and for these reasons I highly recommend the set.
Once you have your Aylio set, the fun can begin. First thing you must do is assess exactly what your workout goals are. Those trying to build muscle mass will need to perform workouts with heavy resistance and low repetitions. Choose the heaviest resistance level that will allow you to pump out 3 sets of 8–12 repetitions for each exercise without sacrificing form. Take a 60–90 second breather between sets. Make it your goal to add more resistance to your workouts each week. Also, make sure to performing your reps very slowly to take advantage of hypertrophy, which is the term for increasing the density of muscle fibers. Hypertrophy occurs when a set is performed for between 30 seconds to one minute so make sure you spend at least 5 seconds per repetition or else you will be increasing strength but not muscle size. Ideally, you will do two to three different exercises per muscle group. With the door attachment, you can create over 100 different exercises targeting all muscle groups.
For those looking to lower body fat, get rid of that gut, loose those love handles, or tone their bodies will need to perform workouts with low resistance and high reps. I recommend my clients to choose a resistance levels that allow them to perform 3 sets of 40 repetitions for each exercise. If it is too easy for you to do 40 reps, you will need to up your resistance. Weight loss is a simple formula: more calories expended than consumed. That means your daily goal should be to break a sweat and get your heart rate up. High rep workouts will get your heart pumping but make sure not to rest for more than 20 seconds between exercises!! Throwing in a few crunches, pushups or jumping jacks would improve your workout. The routine we recommend for both muscle mass and weight loss is as follows:
Mondays – Chest & Triceps
Tuesdays – Back & Biceps
Wednesdays – For toning, run for 45–60 minutes. If you’re only looking for mass, take a rest day and give your muscles time to recover.
Thursdays – Shoulders & Legs
Fridays – Abs (Yes, you can work your abs with resistance bands)
Saturdays – Rest
Sundays – Rest
Use the Aylio instructional book or instructional DVD to choose exercises from over 100 possibilities. Also try incorporating cardio, pushups, crunches or dumbbells, into your resistance training regimen for further difficulty and greater results.
Customers who take advantage of resistance training usually begin seeing significant improvements in their physique within just two to three weeks and also report higher levels of energy and explosiveness throughout the day. As with any exercises, do not forget to warm up and stretch for 5–10 minutes before workouts. It is important to take precaution by loosening up joints and muscles to avoid injury. Lastly, never forget that dieting is a crucial part of exercise. If you’re looking for muscle mass, stay on a high protein/low carb diet. If you’re looking to lose weight, stick to a low fat low calorie diet. Good luck and thanks for choosing Aylio resistance bands!
