But can you truly achieve muscle growth with resistance bands?
Extensive research has conclusively demonstrated that, with the right approach, elastic bands are just as effective as free weights in stimulating muscle growth. The key lies in experiencing tension right from the initial movement and using appropriate resistance levels to maximize mechanical stress. However, to fully harness this phenomenon and optimize muscle gains, a top-quality resistance band set is essential. This is precisely where SmartWorkout Elite shines.
Boasting a resistance bar, innovative manufacturing techniques, and a total resistance of 120 kg, SmartWorkout Elite is meticulously engineered to ignite your muscles and unlock unprecedented gains. Train with confidence, no matter where you are, and witness your physique undergo a remarkable transformation.

THE SMARTWORKOUT DIFFERENCE
ADJUSTABLE RESISTANCE FROM 5 TO 160 KG
SmartWorkout difference : Standard resistance bands sets are sold with 70 kg of resistance equivalent and can not handle a heavier load.
ULTRA RESISTANT BANDS MADE OF NATURAL LATEX
SmartWorkout difference : Most bands out there are made of plastic (TPE) – rough to the touch, weak and which can snap easily when enough force is applied to it.
THE SMARTWORKOUT BAR
SmartWorkout difference: SmartWorkout Elite has been designed to be used easily and safely with the training bar, which is not typically included in standard resistance bands set.
Each band has two unbreakable, non-deformable steel rings that clip to the accessories with strong carabiners. Not only is this system unbreakable and safer, it is also more convenient and faster to clip and unclip the bands.
SmartWorkout difference : Standard elastic bands sets have individual carabiners at the edge of each band, which are usually fragile and break quickly.
SmartWorkout difference : Standard bobybuilding elastic sets have foam handles, ankle straps are thin and not padded with soft neoprene, while door anchor doesn’t have a fabric that protects bands.
Absolutely, it's entirely possible to build muscle with resistance bands when using the right equipment.
Let's keep in mind that increasing muscle size requires applying resistance to the muscles with sufficient intensity to create micro-tears in the muscle fibers. This process stimulates the body to adapt by rebuilding stronger and larger muscle fibers, better equipped for future demands.
Numerous studies have confirmed that muscles respond similarly to resistance from free weights and resistance from elastic bands when the tension is equivalent. To achieve this similar tension, it's important to:
- Use high resistance and progressively increase it (known as progressive overload).
- Ensure that you feel the resistance throughout the entire range of motion, thus increasing the time under tension.
Thanks to its unique technical features and progressive resistance felt right from the beginning of each movement, SmartWorkout Elite meets both of these essential criteria perfectly. However, using the equipment correctly is vital for optimizing muscle gains. Rest assured, we provide detailed guidance in our resistance bands workout routine and instructional videos.
When it comes to building muscle mass, nutrition plays a crucial role, just as it does with traditional dumbbell training!
Progressive resistance refers to the changing level of resistance experienced during a movement. It's often associated with resistance bands, where the resistance increases as the band is stretched, unlike the consistent resistance provided by free weights. Progressive resistance is a significant advantage of resistance bands because it aligns perfectly with the strength curve of the exercise.
Let's take the Biceps Curl, for example. At the start of the movement, where your strength is at its lowest, you'll feel less resistance. As you reach the end of the motion, where your strength is at its peak, the resistance increases. This ingenious mechanism enables you to apply substantial resistance while protecting your joints.
However, there's a potential drawback to progressive resistance. If the resistance is too low or your form is incorrect, the muscle may not remain fully engaged throughout the entire range of motion, limiting its potential for muscle growth.
To overcome this limitation, it's crucial to start stretching the elastic bands right from the beginning of the movement, ensuring continuous tension throughout the exercise. That's why our resistance bands are carefully designed to provide approximately 60% of their maximum intensity right from the start of the exercise. We've considered resistance, composition, and size to create training bands that facilitate optimal tension.
Moreover, SmartWorkout offers comprehensive tutorials for each exercise, guiding you on proper band placement and ensuring you feel the tension right from the outset.
In conclusion, progressive resistance is not a hindrance to muscle building, as long as the muscle remains under tension throughout the entire exercise.
Absolutely! Resistance bands are effective tools for weight loss and can help you sculpt your physique if that's your goal.
Successful weight loss requires achieving a calorie deficit, which means burning more calories than you consume. To accomplish this, you can manipulate two key factors: reducing calorie intake through a balanced and nutritious diet and increasing calorie expenditure through regular physical exercise.
In terms of exercise, SmartWorkout Elite offers a diverse range of resistance band workouts that engage your muscles, boost your metabolism, and increase calorie burn.
However, it's important to approach weight loss in a sustainable and healthy way. Instead of relying on quick-fix diets or rigorous workout regimens, focus on adopting long-term lifestyle changes that promote gradual and lasting results. With this in mind, we recommend following our "Strong & Beautiful" resistance band workout plan, specifically designed to support your fat loss journey.
Absolutely! Resistance bands are an excellent choice for beginners because they offer progressive resistance, helping you build strength, stability, and coordination—essential foundations for more advanced strength exercises. Moreover, they are gentle on the joints, reducing stress on tendons and ligaments compared to free weights.
Starting with low-resistance bands and mastering the fundamental movements is essential before progressing to higher resistance levels or more advanced exercises.
Our resistance band set is perfectly suited for beginners. It features adjustable resistance, ranging from 5 KG to 120 KG, allowing for progressive overload as you develop your strength. Our tutorials and instructional videos will guide you through the basic exercises, and our three resistance band workout plans incorporate effective strength training principles to maximize your results.
As an added bonus, our Express training program is ideal for beginners. It emphasizes fundamental compound exercises and has a 20-minute format, making it a gradual and manageable way to start without feeling overwhelmed. The best part? It's completely FREE on the SmartWorkout app.
Sure things! Even if you're an experienced fitness enthusiast, integrating resistance bands into your training regimen can offer significant benefits.
Resistance bands provide the necessary load to stimulate muscle growth and enhance strength while also prioritizing joint safety. They offer a wide range of exercises and various angles of work, allowing you to effectively target and engage all muscle groups in a balanced way. Additionally, incorporating resistance bands adds diversity to your workout routine, which can be a valuable factor for accelerating your progress.
However, it's crucial to choose resistance bands that align with your fitness level and to progressively increase the intensity of your workouts through the concept of progressive overload. Our resistance band bar, capable of withstanding up to 200 KG of resistance for specific exercises, is perfectly suited to meet this requirement!
Absolutely! We've meticulously designed our resistance band set to accommodate a wide range of individuals, regardless of their body shape or size.
When it comes to height, SmartWorkout Elite is optimized for individuals ranging from 1.55m to 2.10m.
- For individuals on the shorter side, particularly in exercises where foot support is crucial, such as Biceps Curls, Squats, and Lunges, you might notice a slightly lower resistance compared to taller individuals using the same band tension. This occurs because the elastic bands are less stretched for shorter individuals. To fully experience the resistance, you can adjust your foot positioning accordingly.
- If you're taller than 1.90m, there are a couple of exercises where you should exercise caution to avoid excessive strain on the bands:
- Overhead Press: It's advisable to block the resistance band with a single foot instead of both feet to minimize band stretching.
- Squats: We recommend substituting Squats with Lunges (with one foot on the bands) to limit excessive stretching.
The height factor doesn't significantly affect exercises that rely on supports other than the feet, such as door anchors.
Regardless of your height, it's crucial to avoid stretching the elastic bands more than four times their initial length to prevent weakening. Proper band positioning plays a significant role in their stretching, and it's not solely dependent on your height.
In terms of body shape, the equipment's effectiveness remains consistent regardless of weight. Our resistance band set caters to individuals of all sizes and accommodates various fitness goals, including muscle gain and weight loss.
If you're overweight, SmartWorkout Elite is an excellent choice for engaging in physical activity. However, we do recommend consulting a qualified healthcare professional before starting any intense physical routines.
Regarding age, SmartWorkout Elite is suitable for a broad audience thanks to its wide resistance range (from 5kg to 120kg). While there's no specific minimum age for beginning resistance training, it's generally advisable to wait until adolescence (around 14 years old) before embarking on a serious and structured gym routine. This precaution ensures the safety of bone and muscle growth.
Resistance bands are an exceptional option for older individuals looking to maintain their health and mobility. These bands provide joint-friendly exercise and support low-impact strength training routines, making them a versatile choice for various age group
Total Weight & Dimension: Our resistance band set weighs approximately 2.5 KG without packaging and 3.0 KG with packaging. On delivery, the Elite pack is packaged in a carton of 58 x 9,5 x 11,5 cm.
Resistance Bar Dimensions: The resistance bar measures 106 cm in total length. It can be conveniently detached into two parts, each measuring 53 cm. The bar has a diameter of 3.3 cm and weighs approximately 1.2 KG. It's constructed from iron and features a comfortable foam covering for enhanced grip and comfort during workouts.
Resistance Bands Features: SmartWorkout Elite includes 7 elastic bands, each measuring 120 cm in length. These bands are designed to stretch up to 4 times their initial size without sustaining any damage. They are crafted from 100% natural latex, known for its exceptional durability and flexibility. The band attachments are made of high-quality stainless steel for secure and reliable connections.
