The loop design of the PTP MicroBand allows to perform exercises that benefit muscles with a small range of motion, which makes it ideal to target glutes, hips and shoulders. At 14.2 kg worth of tension, the MicroBand Ultimate has been created to challenge the strongest individuals. It can be used by regular fitness enthusiasts, athletes and bodybuilders, who want to strengthen the muscles in their buttocks, hips and shoulders. Because the hips are responsible for all the leg movements and the shoulders enable all arm movements, using the MicroBand can represent a key piece of equipment to promote overall body mobility and joint stabilisation. Using the MicroBand to condition your rotator cuff muscles (the four muscles that make up your shoulder) before a workout involving calistenics or heavy weight lifting can also prevent the dreaded shoulder injury. The smooth latex provides progressive resistance, giving you control over the level of stretch and making it more gentle on your joints.
