The use of resistance bands for your stomach exercises routine can be of significant help to get the six packs you want, and to add up to that benefit, there are varied resistance bands exercises to choose from. These resistance bands are made of different intensity levels, and this is determined by their color. (Green being the softest level and red the most difficult level).

Choosing a high intensity resistance band to start can easily lead to injury, so please avoid that and also before starting your routine consult with a professional to see if you can perform these type of exercises.
