Resistance Bands – Type 2 Diabetes Management

Strength Training and Diabetes Guidelines
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that people with type 2 diabetes start a strength training program to help with blood sugar control. The program can begin with a moderate schedule (one set of 10-15 repetitions with weights up to three times a week). Once you become accustomed to the moderate schedule, you can move on up to a more aggressive schedule of three sets of 20-25 repetitions with weights up to three times a week for 20-30 minutes a session. Strength training doesn’t mean that you have to lift large heavy weights to get results. Resistance bands or Workout band exercises can be a critical part of your strength training program and can help you build, tone muscle, and boost your metabolism.

All Resistance bands are not the same. The Classic Ambiance resistance bands are the preferred latex therapy band because they accurately duplicate the elasticity of human muscles. While other therapy bands are too weak or too strong, the bands come in 3 levels of resistance (light, medium, and heavy). Classic Ambiance workout bands are lightweight, professional grade, and can deliver the precise amount of resistance the client requires. The resistance bands also include video access to licensed personal training videos that can demonstrate an effective way to shape your body safely. I always recommend to my clients that they warm up prior to using the resistance band, such as walking for a few minutes and light stretching.

Before You Start Strength Training
Talk to your doctor before you start any exercise program. Your doctor may want to examine you to make sure you are able to do the exercise program without injuring yourself.
As with any type of exercise, with resistance training always warm up before exercising and then take time to cool down afterward.
