TravelIn a continuing collaboration with Scott over at Straight to the Bar, we will be writing about training and travel throughout the month of September. This week, Scott discusses traveling with bands. What is a band?

Although there are several types of bands, here I’m referring to the heavier variety that can be used with barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells or just on their own. If you’ve never seen them, think of an incredibly large (several feet across) rubber band.

Scott explains what bands are, why you should travel with them, and provides some sample exercises that you can do with them. He also includes a video of doing band sprints, which are as effective as they are humorous to watch! You can check out his article at Straight to the Bar.
