But can you truly build muscle with resistance bands?
Extensive research has shown that, with the right approach, elastic bands are just as effective as free weights in stimulating muscle growth. It all comes down to feeling the tension from the very first movement and using adequate resistance to maximize mechanical stress. However, a high-quality resistance bands set is essential to fully harness this phenomenon and promotes muscle gain, and this is where SmartWorkout Elite shines.
Featuring a resistance bar, innovative manufacturing techniques, and a total resistance of 260 lbs (120 kg), SmartWorkout Elite is engineered to ignite your muscles and unlock unparalleled gains. Train with confidence, wherever you go, and watch your physique transform.

CABLE SEATED ROW
Experience the SmartWorkout Differences
ADJUSTABLE RESISTANCE FROM 10 TO 360 LBS
The SmartWorkout Edge: While other fitness band sets settle for a meager 150 lbs of resistance, our commitment to performance ensures that you can push beyond limits and achieve extraordinary results.
ULTRA-RESILIENT NATURAL LATEX BANDS
The SmartWorkout Difference: While most elastic bands are made from rough and fragile plastic (TPE), prone to tearing with the slightest display of force, our training bands are crafted from high-grade natural latex and have an extended lifespan of 5 years minimum.
THE SMARTWORKOUT BAR
The SmartWorkout Advantage: Our resistance band set is specifically designed to seamlessly integrate with the resistance bar, which is not included in traditional rubber band sets.
UNBREAKABLE ANTI-SNAP MECHANISM
The SmartWorkout Edge: Unlike traditional rubber band sets with small individual carabiners that can be fragile or made of plastic, our innovative design ensures durability and are specifically tailored for use with our resistance bar.
The SmartWorkout Difference: Traditional gym band sets have foam handles that are fragile, and deteriorate over time. Non-padded ankle straps scratch and are uncomfortable to wear. Standard anchors have half the volume of ours, making them dangerous to use with heavy loads.
Yes, it is entirely possible to build muscle with resistance bands when using the appropriate equipment.
Let's remember that in order to increase muscle size, it is necessary to apply resistance to the muscle, with enough intensity to create micro-tears in the muscle fibres. This allows the body to adapt by rebuilding stronger and larger muscle fibers, better prepared for the next exertion.
Several studies have confirmed that muscles hardly differentiate between resistance from free weights and resistance from elastic bands when the tension is the same.
To replicate a similar tension, it is important to:
- Use high resistance and gradually increase it (progressive overload).
- Feel the resistance throughout the entire movement to increase time under tension.
Thanks to its unique technical features and progressive resistance felt from the very beginning of the movement, SmartWorkout Elite perfectly meets these two conditions. However, it is essential to use the equipment correctly to optimize muscle gains. Rest assured, everything is explained in our resistance bands workout routine as well as in our instructional videos.
When it comes to building muscle mass, it's exactly the same as with dumbbells: it also depends on what's on your plate!
Progressive resistance refers to the varying resistance experienced throughout a movement. It is often associated with resistance bands: the more a band is stretched, the greater the resistance felt, unlike the constant resistance of free weights.
Progressive resistance is a significant advantage of resistance bands as it allows for perfect alignment with the strength curve of the exercise. Take the Biceps Curl for instance: you'll notice less resistance at the initial stage of the movement - where your strength is at its lowest - and increased resistance as you reach the end of the motion - where your strength is at its peak. This ingenious mechanism enables you to apply substantial resistance while safeguarding your joints.
Nevertheless, there is a potential drawback to progressive resistance: if the resistance is too low or your form is incorrect, the muscle may not remain fully engaged throughout the entire range of motion, limiting its hypertrophic potential.
To overcome this limitation, it is vital to stretch the elastic bands from the very start of the movement, ensuring continuous tension throughout the exercise.
That's precisely why our resistance bands are meticulously designed to provide approximately 60% of their maximum intensity right from the beginning of the exercise. Through careful consideration of resistance, composition, and size, we have created training bands that facilitate optimal tension. Additionally, SmartWorkout offers comprehensive tutorials for each exercise, guiding you on proper band placement and ensuring you feel the tension right from the outset.
In conclusion, progressive resistance is not a hindrance to muscle building, provided that the muscle remains under tension throughout the entire exercise.
Absolutely! Resistance bands promote weight loss and will help you sculpt your physique if that is your goal.
Effective weight loss requires a calorie deficit, meaning you need to burn more calories than you consume.
To achieve this, you can manipulate two key factors: reducing calorie intake through a balanced and nutritious diet, and increasing calorie expenditure through regular physical exercise.
When it comes to exercise, SmartWorkout Elite offers a wide range of resistance band workouts that engage your muscles, rev up your metabolism, and boost your calorie burn.
However, it's important to approach weight loss in a sustainable and healthy manner. Instead of quick-fix diets or grueling workout regimens, focus on adopting long-term lifestyle changes that promote gradual and lasting results. With this in mind, we recommend following our Strong & Beautiful resistance band workout plan, designed specifically to support your fat loss journey.
Sure thing! Fitness bands can be an excellent choice for beginners as they offer progressive resistance and help develop the strength, stability, and coordination required for more advanced strength exercises. Additionally, they are gentler on the joints compared to free weights, reducing stress on tendons and ligaments.
It is important to begin with low-resistance bands and master the fundamental movements before progressing to higher levels of resistance or more advanced exercises.
Our resistance band set is hence perfectly suited for beginners: the adjustable resistance, ranging from 10 lbs (5 kg) to 260 lbs (120 kg), allows for progressive overload as you build strength. Our tutorials and instructional videos will guide you through the basic exercises, and our three bands workout plans will provide you with the most effective strength training principles to optimize your results.
As an added bonus, our Express training program is ideal for beginners as it focuses on fundamental compound exercises. Its 20-minutes format allows for a gradual start without getting discouraged over time. The best part? It's completely FREE on the SmartWorkout app.
Certainly! Even if you are a seasoned practitioner, incorporating elastic bands into your training can be highly advantageous.
Resistance bands provide enough load to stimulate muscle growth and enhance strength, all while safeguarding your joints. Moreover, they offer a wide array of exercises and varying angles of work to effectively target and engage all muscles in a balanced manner. Additionally, training with resistance bands adds diversity to your workout routine and surprises your muscles, a key variable for accelerating progress.
However, it is important to select resistance bands that are suitable for your level and to continue to increase the intensity of your workouts with progressive overload. Our resistance band bar can withstand up to 440 lbs (200 kg) of resistance for certain exercises, perfectly catering to this requirement!
Yes! We have designed our resistance band set to cater to a diverse range of individuals, regardless of their body shape or size.
When it comes to height, SmartWorkout Elite is optimized for individuals measuring between 1.55m and 2.10m (approximately 5'1" to 6'11").
- If you're on the shorter side, it's worth noting that for band exercises that rely on foot support like Biceps Curl, Squats, and Lunges, you may perceive a slightly lower resistance compared to taller individuals with the same band tension. This occurs because the elastic bands are less stretched. To fully experience the resistance, you can adjust your foot positioning accordingly.
- If you're taller than 1.90m (6'3"), there are a couple of exercises where you'll need to exercise caution to prevent excessive strain on the bands:
- Overhead Press: Block the resistance band with a single foot instead of both feet to minimize band stretching.
- Squats: We recommend substituting it with Lunges (with one foot on the bands) to limit excessive stretching.
The height factor doesn't affect exercises where supports other than the feet are used, such as door anchors. Regardless of your height, it's essential to avoid stretching the elastic bands more than four times their initial length to prevent weakening. Proper band positioning plays a significant role in their stretching, rather than just your height!
In terms of body shape, the effectiveness of the equipment isn't impacted by weight. Our resistance band set is suitable for individuals of all sizes and accommodates various goals, including muscle gain and weight loss.
If you're overweight, SmartWorkout Elite is an excellent choice for engaging in physical activity. However, we do recommend consulting a qualified healthcare professional before starting any intense physical routines.
Regarding age, SmartWorkout Elite caters to a broad audience thanks to its wide resistance range (from 5kg to 120kg).
There's no specific minimum age for starting resistance training, but it's generally recommended to wait until adolescence (around 14 years old) before embarking on a serious and structured gym routine. This precaution ensures the safety of bone and muscle growth.
Fitness bands are an exceptional option for older individuals aiming to maintain their health and mobility. The bands provide joint-friendly exercise and support low-impact strength training routines.
The total weight of our resistance band set is approximately 5.5 lbs (2.5 kg) without packaging, and 6.6 lbs with (3 kg).
The resistance bar measures 42 inches (106 cm) and can be detached into two parts, each measuring 21 inches (53 cm). It has a diameter of 1.3 inches (3.3 cm) and weighs approximately 2.6 lbs (1.2 kg). The band bar is made of iron and is covered with foam for added comfort.
The 7 elastic bands are 47 inches (120 cm) in length and can stretch up to 4 times their initial size without sustaining damage. They are made of 100% natural latex, and their attachments are made of stainless steel.
SmartWorkout Elite is easily portable in a gym bag that is longer than 21 inches (53 cm), such as our SmartWorkout bag. The equipment fits into a cabin suitcase; however, please note that the resistance bar is not allowed as cabin baggage due to safety regulations.
