How to buy Resistance Bands for Home Gym Workout?

by fitness journalist
Resistance bands are one of the best ways to exercise if you are into light-weight exercises.

As too many of us have learned, it’s surprisingly easy to end up with […]

Here’s what we started with… Talk about unfinished, right? We had 9.5′ ceilings though and a great space to work with. As you can see, we already […]
