You set yourself a goal and you are totally motivated to go for it. For the first weeks it´s not a big deal to stay focused and to work out for two to three times a week. But faster than intended your daily routine influenced by family and work stress is back. Your initial motivation goes down and your regular workout routine slides into the background. Is that a known cycle for you?
We often see people warming up on a bike trying to increase their body temperature. But does this seem to be an appropriate way to warmup? The biggest amount of our population works in a sitting position for about 8 hours every day. So why would you choose a warmup in a sitting position? Wouldn’t it be a way more efficient to prepend a functional warmup which prepares you for your upcoming strength or interval trainings session? There is just this one right answer, “of course”. However, we expect a warm-up to do a lot more.

Originally a proven alternative to free weights and machines for the elderly and injured, powerbands have been confirmed to boost muscle strength and functional performance in healthy folks too. But that's not the only reason. Let us count the ways...
Most things you do with a dumbbell or barbell can be done with a powerband. Will a resistance band deadlift give you exactly the same strength stimulus as a loaded barbell on the platform? Of course not. But that's not necessarily a downside. In fact, I would argue that the main benefit of powerbands is the way they provide a different stimulus to your muscles throughout your range of motion.
