Power Bands: Power to You!

Updated: May 20, 2023

When learning our key pole moves, it’s common for us to want to master our tricks yesterday! So if you’re finding it a struggle to nail a trick, power bands (thick resistance bands) can help you!

How do they work?

Resistance bands are super charged strong bands that help take a portion of your body weight away from the trick, making it easier to nail!

For anyone looking to grab a power band, check out Rubberbanditz and enter the discount code THEPOLEPHYSIO10 for 10% off your purchase.

Using a power band for the first time - the rules:

  1. Always keep it safe, never try a new trick without your instructor's guidance

  2. The greater the stretch of the band (i.e higher up the pole), the more resistance provided and the easing the trick

  3. The thicker the band, the more resistance provided

  4. If you need more assistance/support from the band, then consider using two bands instead of one

Take a look at our favourite band assisted pole tricks below that you can do! Don't forget to tag us on socials too!
