You might’ve heard that Tom Brady primarily uses resistance bands in his approach to functional strength & conditioning.

“At TB12, around 90 percent of what we do —and I do — involves working out with resistance bands,” he says. “A lot of athletes show up at the TB12 Center with a fixed idea about how resistance bands work, and some even associate them with rehab. Many are surprised to find that resistance bands work their bodies functionally better than weights do in terms of resistance, versatility, and maximizing efficiency.”

You may appreciate how beneficial resistance bands are for rehab. What you might not know is that resistance bands can completely replace weights; bands offer an effective functional strength & conditioning approach that limits the inflammation and overload that comes with heavy weights.
