Why use Resitance bands for calisthenics?
If you’re having trouble progressing a specific exercise, a resistence band may help you overcome a plateau. The bands take away some of your body weight so you’re able to do more reps while maintaining good form which is essential for proper muscle development and avoiding injuries.
They’re also great to master advanced calisthenics movements like the planche, the muscle up, front lever or the human flag.
But they can also be used as the exact opposite: As an additional resistance (for exercises such as push-ups, dips, squats, etc) if some exercises are already too easy for you.
Resistance Bands are also a perfect calisthenics equipment for warming up as well as for stretching and for mobility exercises.
