At Iron Edge we are consistently looking to push the boundaries of how effective our equipment can be, just as any athlete or therapist aims to improve their own performance or trade.
Micro Bands are essentially Power Bands which are smaller in diameter thickness. Because of their size, shape and resistance they are well-suited to rehabilitation, prehab and activation drills.
Our Micro Band Pro’s are made of woven fabric & rubber, resulting in a band that is more gentle on the skin and hair and making them virtually unbreakable.
Prehab exercises like hands on the clock are an excellent way to warm up the whole shoulder musculature. Placing both hands through the Micro Band so it sits on the wrists, put both hands on the wall and point the fingers in different directions to one another, as the hands of the clock do to indicate the time.
Monster walks, where the band is looped around the ankles and you crab-walk sideways, are an excellent activation exercise for the gluteal muscles.
Finally, Micro Band Pro’s are an excellent way to teach formal cues, especially for an exercise like squatting. A common error when squatting is valgus collapse, or the knees coming together as the person descends. By looping a Micro Band Pro around the legs just above the knees, it forces the squatter to keep the Band under tension by pushing the knees out forcing the correct muscle to fire.
Virtually unbreakable and resistant to tearing
Won’t roll up
Longer lasting than current Rubber Bands
5 different resistances from- Light-Medium-Heavy-X Heavy-XX Heavy
Note: Micro Band Pro’s are only made to be stretched 2.5 times their resting length. Any further stretch may cause the bands to deteriorate at a faster rate. If you are able to stretch a Micro Band Pro past 2.5 times resting length it means you are ready to move up in resistance, please select a heavier band
