Nike resistance bands provide an effective workout for almost every muscle group in your body. Light and portable, you can carry the resistance bands with you to the gym, park or office, for example, and fit a workout in at your convenience. The versatility of the Nike resistance band kit provides you with a challenging workout that can be tailored to your own fitness level.

The Nike Kit

The Nike resistance band kit includes three different resistance bands and an easily portable storage bag. The heaviest band in the set is 62 inches long, the medium band is 18.5 inches long and shaped in a figure-8. A circular band -- 30.5 inches -- is the lightest of the group. All bands contain ergonomically designed foam handles.

Exercises

Each Nike resistance band can be utilized to strengthen and tone your body. The long, 62-inch band is the most versatile of the three. Place your feet on the middle of the band and take a handle in each hand to perform lateral raises, shoulder presses, biceps curls and squats. The figure-8 band allows you to do single-leg raises, hamstring curls, biceps curls and triceps extensions. Shuffle side to side with the circular band around your ankles to train your inner and outer thighs. You can also loop the band on your torso at chest height to perform chest presses.
