When used regularly, resistance bands can help improve your flexibility and mobility. Great for yoga class, post-cardio stretching and even physical therapy, they’re often available at a range of resistance levels to help you build strength as you advance your training or workouts. The ideal option should be sturdy and just the right length for stretching your arms and legs without compromising your desired resistance. If you’re allergic to latex, you’ll also want to opt for a style that’s completely free of the material. Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the best options on the market for shopping made easy.
