Decorate Vs Design – What’s in a Name Anyway?

It may seem a little confusing, Decorator… Designer… What’s the difference, right? Well there is a difference, but very few people actually know what that is. Most people use these titles interchangeably. Some will tell you that one is better than the other, but it really comes down to what you want to do with your business and what type of designer you want to be? How fast do you want to get started and how much time do you want to invest into this new career of yours?

The basic definition of a designer is someone who has a college degree in interior design from an accredited school, and has passed the NCIDQ exam as a member of ASID, or the American Society of Interior Designers. It’s like passing the bar exam for interior designers, and it’s required if you want to be licensed in your state. You must also work for a number of years for an ASID certified designer before you are even eligible to take the test. Wow, that seems like a ton of work!

That may be why most designers, including myself at times, get very defensive about the title. I thought, «Hey I busted my hump through four years of school, and many years working in the field for another designer. I deserve that title!» Ok, we may have a chip on our shoulder, I’ll admit it. One interesting thing I’ve learned is unless you plan on working for an architectural firm, or strictly in commercial design, you don’t really need to put yourself through all of that time, effort, and money.

I do understand its importance. If you want to advise a client on moving walls, or structural changes, you must be educated on the latest building codes, fire regulations, and structural physics of a building. There is serious liability if you make a suggestion that has dangerous or detrimental consequences. If this is the type of designer that you want to be, then the school route is for you. If you really want to be considered a technical «designer» some day, you can use your working time towards your «apprentice» requirements and go back to school.

I have found that it’s sometimes easier to contract out to your engineer or general contractor and let them handle the technical stuff. It takes so much time to draft the design, have it checked by an engineer, which is required to make sure it passes codes, and have it stamped with a regulation seal or engineering endorsement. I now cut that step out and go right to the source. I will teach you more about building your team in a later issue.

I’m here to tell you, as a residential designer, I have learned far more in the «real world» than in design school. I spent thousands towards ASID dues and four wonderful years in college, but never took the plunge to take the exam. I wouldn’t change going to college, nor will I discourage anyone from going. I’m a firm believer that you should never stop learning, and of course it’s an amazing growing process that everyone should experience. I’m just saying that you don’t have to get a degree to be a designer. Especially if this is a new chapter in your life, or a second career. Many women and men today are reinventing themselves in the current economy. You’ve heard this from me before, «Time is precious». There’s no time like the present! If you keep it simple, and learn from my experience, I can teach you how to have a great career starting now! Only a few clients have asked me if I am licensed or still in ASID, and I explain that for me, it has never been a necessity. That’s usually the end of that. I have had a successful career for almost 20 years now without passing The Test, and I’ve never lost a client because of it. I learned at an early age what really motivates me, is simply making other people happy. I help families create a beautiful home, while making the process painless for them, and profitable for me. I have done commercial design and poured over blueprints, codes, and building requirements, but that isn’t my calling.

If I want to make structural changes, I turn to my team of experts. By delegating and networking, you save tons of time, frustration, and liability. Let the experts do their job, while you do what’s most important to you: Making sure the customer is happy and that your design is coming together as planned. You still make a profit from their work and with all of the time you save, you can build your clientele and spend time doing the things that you want to do.

When you’re first starting out, you will be considered a Decorator, and that’s OK! Four year degree or not, most people will refer to you as their decorator anyway. «A rose by any other name would smell as sweet». Some of the most influential people I have ever worked with, were hugely successful and profitable… Decorators.

Lindsay Rosenwald – His Journey to Biosciences

Paramount Bio Sciences, LLC, a global pharmaceutical development and health care investment company, was founded and managed by Dr. Lindsay A. Rosenwald in 1991. The company facilitates drug development, scientific support and dedicates itself to finding and developing novel therapeutic medicines with large potential. By assessing promising drug candidates worldwide, Paramount has been able to create, nurture, and support more than 40 life sciences companies, academic centers, biotechnology and pharmaceutical firms over the past 19 years, including 20 in the last 48 months. Current Portfolio Companies have over 40 product candidates advancing through clinical trials.

Unique approach to bio tech investment

Business and product development are just two pieces in the Paramount puzzle. An affiliate of Paramount Bio Sciences – Paramount Bio Capital, Inc., is a FINRA registered broker-dealer that, among other activities, raises capital for the Paramount Portfolio Companies. It raised over $1 billion for the Portfolio Companies; several times that amount has been raised for Paramount Companies by other entities. While venture capital and private equity firms tend to be investment-oriented, Paramount’s bias is on the operational side. It establishes companies from the ground up, using its own capital and eventually funds raised from diverse private and institutional investors through Paramount Bio Sciences and other banks and broker-dealers on Wall Street. Surely, Paramount’s experience in finance and business areas helps make the model attractive to potential licensors and chief executive officers.

With Paramount Capital largely handling accounting, financial, market analytical and legal functions, managers of its Portfolio Companies can focus largely on driving drug candidates through the clinic and creating value for shareholders, licensors and the patient community.

Infrastructure and Company Building at Paramount

Paramount includes an extensive support infrastructure with experience in licensing, clinical development, corporate operations, and navigating regulatory pathways. Every new portfolio company at Paramount Bio Sciences is built around intriguing science and commercial potential. The Portfolio Companies are operated by Paramount Capital through a dedicated first-class management at the company level, as well as through business and clinical development and operations specialists working for Paramount in New York. Chelsea Therapeutics, for example, initially was created or founded by Dr. Rosenwald around a novel anti-folate being developed for the treatment of inflammatory conditions that included rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and psoriasis. Chelsea’s compound, CH-1504, has demonstrated superiority in terms of both safety and efficacy over Methotrexate, the current treatment standard for RA, which has been found to elevate liver enzymes in many patients. Paramount Capital licensed this technology from the University of South Alabama and assembled a world-class management team to help optimize its formulation and advance the development of this and other compounds.

Another academic license from Paramount is a portfolio of organic arsenic trioxide compounds licensed from the MD Anderson Cancer Center. This FDA approved compound progressed from IND to NDA in about 30 months and this is the fastest regulatory approval in the FDA history. Trisenox, an inorganic alternative of arsenic trioxide, which can product produces cardiac abnor¬malities at high doses. By contrast with the inorganic version, organic arsenic trioxide does not show evidence of these problems, even when used at doses 20 times higher than Trisenox. To leverage that advantage, Dr. Rosenwald founded Ziopharm Oncology to advance this organic arsenic compound, ZIO-101, to treat cancers, including solid tumors, where mega dosing has proven effective. Ziopharm Oncology, as one of many Paramount’s portfolio companies, subsequently has in-licensed and is developing several other anti-cancer agents.

Another Paramount portfolio company, founded and managed by Lindsay Rosenwald M.D., is Keryx Bio pharmaceuticals. It is developing a compound called Sulonex, which is an oral therapy for diabetic nephropathy. It was licensed from the Alfa Wassermann Group, a privately held pharmaceutical firm in Bologna, Italy. If approved, Sulonex will be marketed to 15 million people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes as well as the 1 to 2 million patients with Type 1 diabetes.

When Is It Legal to Record Telephone Calls?

Recording telephone calls and in-person conversations is a common practice of undercover private investigators as well as aggressive investigative journalists. Such recordings can make or break a case or investigation.

In fact, most private investigators view undercover recording as an indispensable tool in their arsenal. However, others don’t use recordings because of the complex legal risks that it creates.

There are important questions of law that must be fully understood before developing a consistent policy about making and using undercover recordings. Both federal and state statutes govern the use of electronic recording equipment. The unlawful use of such equipment can give rise not only to civil lawsuits brought by the «harmed» parties, but also criminal prosecution is possible.

Accordingly, it is critical that investigators, lawyers and journalists fully understand all the laws that may apply to a given set of circumstances, and appreciate what their rights and responsibilities are when recording and disclosing communications.

Although many of the relevant statutes address wiretapping and eavesdropping (i.e., listening in on conversations of others without their knowledge), these same laws may apply to recording of any conversations, including phone calls and in-person discussions.

Federal law generally allows recording of telephone calls and other electronic communications with the consent of at least one party to the call. A majority of the states and territories have adopted wiretapping statutes based on this federal law, although most also have extended the law to cover in-person conversations.

Thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia permit individuals to record conversations to which they are a party, without expressly informing the other parties that they are doing so. These states are generally referred to as «one-party consent» states, and as long as the investigator (or the person doing the recording) is a party to the conversation, it is legal for him to record it.

Twelve other states require, under most circumstances, the consent of ALL parties to a conversation. Those jurisdictions are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington.

Regardless of the specific jurisdiction involved, it is almost always illegal to record a conversation to which you are NOT a party, do not have consent to tape, and could not naturally overhear in a public place.

Additionally, complex legal concerns can arise when interstate telephone calls are recorded by one of the parties to the call. For example, an investigator located in New York State who records a telephone conversation without the consent of a party located in Illinois would not violate New York State law, but could be civilly and even criminally liable under Illinois law.

A court located in New York State may even apply Illinois’ laws, depending on its «conflict of laws» rules. Therefore, an aggrieved party may choose to file suit or a criminal complaint in either jurisdiction, depending on which law is ultimately more favorable to the party’s claim (and where jurisdiction lies).

Additionally, federal law may apply when the conversation is between parties who are in different states, although it is unsettled whether a court will hold in a given case that federal law preempts state law.

Therefore, in light of the complex laws governing electronic recording of conversations between private parties, private investigators are strongly advised to err on the side of caution when recording or disclosing an interstate telephone call.

Some Exciting Tips to Setup Barbeque at Your Backyard

With summer knocking at the doors, the craze of under sky cooking is hitting as the prime trend among the food addicts. But, a well-designed outdoor kitchen will be equally suitable for a year-round cooking experience. An outdoor cooking substitute is as good as an indoor kitchen. It is the second happening living room of your house. However, Barbeque world is stuffed with pretty serious arguments. Gas or Charcoal? Mop or brush? Memphis or Carolina. With so many varieties in vogue, it sometimes becomes quite confusing for the house owner to set up a flexible and well equipped under sky cooking zone. Here are some expert tips, which will help you to start an esteemed external cooking area.

Initiate from the ground:

Establishing the overall floor layout is the starting block of your external cooking arsenal. Keep in mind the diverse weather conditions along with the average weight of the appliances you are planning to install. Tiles or marble floor will be slippery inviting in a bad fall. If there are small children, running here and there along with senior citizens, then the scenario may become worse. Opt for some porous flooring substance, which renders friction and this prevents slippery fall.

Choose a perfect location:

You cannot place your under sky cooking arsenal anywhere in the open space. Pick a corner, far from your main building, such that, the smoke from the grill does not waft back inside your house. Ascertain the wind pattern in your locality and then hit the first hammer on the inaugural nail. Maintain a safe distance from your neighbour’s barbeque, to avoid the clash of heat (both real heat and mental heat!)

Choose the appliances correctly:

Under-sky cooking zone demands some special cooking tools, striking a sound difference with its indoor counterpart. The appliances are comparatively larger, and any professional barbeque planner or dealer will be the best person to guide you in this section. Leave adequate space on both the side of the grill to fit enough platters and other tools. Never place the appliances too close altogether.

Arrange something for entertainment:

This kind of cooking is itself an entertaining experience, but if it is accompanied by some soothing music then, the overall effect becomes much more pleasing, both to the ears and to the soul. Clad inside the arms of green nature, under the curtain of blue sky, mouth-watering food, and soothing music is the complete definition of a BBQ feel.

Last but not the least, if you are passionate about barbeque then keep every tool within your arms reach and take your food and cooking seriously. It is the taste of the food, which stays in your mind for a long time.

This kind of cooking area magnifies your living area and enables you to cook, eat, and chat without any prior reservation. Apart from fun, it also helps to keep your house cooler. Indoor oven or stove generates excessive heat in the kitchen, escalating your internal temperature and forcing your AC unit to work hard. So it is wise to create an external cooking setup, to experience a fresh new spree of cooking.

The Smart Contact Lens Bubble

New technology is being created faster and faster these days. The rapid pace of development in the tech sector is changing the world around us in fantastic ways, connecting all aspects of our lives through tiny gadgets. In less than ten years we’ve seen the release of the first smart watch, the iPhone, the first smart TV and internet connected cars among many innovations. The internet of things, as it has become to be called, is only in its infancy, but tech companies are trying to find new and imaginative ways to integrate the World Wide Web into our lives. Our clothing, think of the self-drying coat and self-tying shoes from Back to the future 2, our kitchen appliances, refrigerators that tell you what food and when you need to buy it, and even our books, have become internet connected. The newest gizmo in the internet of things that is soon to be released is the smart contact lens.

Sony, Samsung, Google and a few lesser known companies have all filed patents in the last couple of years in a race to be the first to bring the lenses to the market for consumer purchase. Each company seems to have focused on a different issue. Each one encompasses a unique feature, such as taking photos, augmented reality or addressing health concerns, while other features are ubiquitous to all the manufacturers’ lenses.

Sony was recently awarded a patent in April of 2016 for a smart contact lens that will take photos and videos of what the wearer is seeing. The lens can do most of what a camera can do. Just like a camera it is capable of autofocus, exposure adjustment and zooming. The patent lays out the lenses ability to calibrate the camera with a wearer’s blink. Want to take a photo? Just blink three times really fast. Want to take a video? Just squint really hard for three seconds. The contact also uses an electroluminescence display screen to playback recorded content. You can do all this without ever looking at your smartphone, but just by looking straight ahead. All of the registered content can then be wirelessly transferred to your smart phone or computer for later viewing.

Samsung was also given a patent in April 2016 in South Korea for its own smart contact lens. The Samsung lens will take photos and videos just like the Sony lens, however it will also have imbedded augmented reality. With a built in display that projects images directly into the wearers’ eye, the Samsung smart contact lenses will have the ability to superimpose computer generated images onto the real world, all while being less visible when worn. If you are curious what the restaurant across the street serves simply look at the front of the building and the menu will appear across your field of vision. Look down the street to see who has the best gas prices and little speech bubbles will pop out from the curb with the amount per gallon inside. Say you’re on a blind date and want to find out more about the person sitting across from you. You can check their Facebook page without ever having to leave the table or pull out your phone. Imagine having the ability to read a foreign language without ever having taken classes, or being able to navigate a place you’ve never been to effortlessly. The applications for this are endless.

Google’s smart contact lens patent approval arrived a month later than Sony and Samsung in May 2016. Google being Google though, they are taking the smart contact lens road a little less traveled; the contact lenses will have to be surgically implanted in your head. Google has partnered with Novartis, the parent company of Alcon contact lenses, the company that used to be known as Cibavision, to develop a lens with flexible electronics and sensors thinner than a human hair that will help those suffering from diabetes. The embedded lenses will read chemicals in the tear fluid to determine if the wearers’ blood sugar levels have fallen to near fatal levels. Upon diagnosing the patient’s glucose condition the smart contact will then be able to administer the insulin itself, if needed. While it may seem a bit intrusive, this would be a great, pain-free alternative for diabetics who prick their fingers daily or who constantly wear a glucose monitor. This is excellent news for diabetics, but Google’s smart lenses could be used by anyone looking to maintain great energy levels or even stick to a healthy diet. In the long run Google is also looking to implement features that would be capable of correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism as well as presbyopia eye conditions. This would make the need for wearing glasses and traditional contact lenses a thing of the past. The patent states that the smart lenses will either be solar powered or be charged by the movements of your eyes. Now that right there is just amazing!

One last company that is on the forefront of the smart lens bubble is Ocumetrics. While lesser known than the previous three tech giants, Ocumetrics may be the first company to roll out a smart lens for sale to the public. Designed by Dr. Garth Webb to enhance the vision of those that need it, the Ocumetrics Bionic Lens as they’re calling it, will not only give the user 20/20 vision, but could actually enhance that by up to three times – yup that’s right, a zoom lens! These lenses would need to be surgically inserted in an in and out eight minute operation. The result would be immediate vision correction. In addition to overcoming the list of ocular vision ailments, the patient would never have a chance of getting cataracts as the lenses would never wear away and the software could be updated wirelessly as needed. Trials need to be carried out first, but the tech could be ready to go in just a few years.

This is an amazing time we live in.

FC Barcelona – The Cruyff Years

Johan Cruyff is a legendary football player known the world over for his aggressive and intelligent style of play. Though he had success in his earlier years, it is when he joined FC Barcelona in 1973 that his star really began to shine.

Cruyff began his career in his home country of the Netherlands playing for AFC Ajax. There he led the team to many victories and memorable performances, but was eventually sold to FC Barcelona for a hefty sum. Cruyff wasted no time winning over the Barcelona fans, stating to the press that he chose Barcelona over their rivals Real Madrid because he didn’t want to play for a team associated with former Spanish dictator Francisco Franco. He even named his son Jordi, a traditional Catalan (the region of Spain in which Barcelona is found) name.

Cruyff’s years playing for FC Barcelona were truly memorable and made him an icon. In his first year with the team, he helped them win La Liga for the first time in fourteen years (beating Real Madrid on their own turf along the way) and was also named European Footballer of the Year. It was during this time that he also scored one of his most memorable goals, called «The Phantom Goal» or «Le but d’imposible de Cruyff» (The Impossible Goal of Cruyff). In a match against Atlético Madrid, the football was already past the far goal post and was at about neck height when Cruyff leapt into the air, twisting so that he was facing away from the goal and kicked the ball into the goal with his right heel. This move among others propelled him to godlike status in the eyes of football fans.

Cruyff then spent many years away from FC Barcelona as a player and manager, until finally returning to the club as manager in 1988. When he returned to Barcelona, Cruyff brought with him the so-called «Dream Team». This elite squad was composed of Spaniards Jon Andoni Goikoetxea, Jose Mari Bakero, Josep Guardiola, Txiki Beguiristain, along with international stars Romanian Gheorghe Hagi, Bulgarian Hristo Stoichkov, Dane Michael Laudrup, Brazilian Romario, and Dutchman Ronald Koeman.

Under Cruyff’s direction, the Dream Team went on to win four consecutive La Liga titles from 1991 to 1994. They won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1989 and the European Cup in 1992 at Wembley Stadium with a famous free kick goal courtesy of Ronald Koeman. In 1990, the Dream Team won a Copa del Rey, the European Super Cup in ’92, and three Supercopa de Espana.

Cruyff remains FC Barcelona’s most successful manager to date, with eleven trophies to his name. He also has the distinction of being the club’s longest serving manager. He continues to be an advisor for FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta, whom he openly endorsed during the elections. To this day, he is still revered by FC Barcelona fans, who call him «El Salvador» (The Saviour) for his successful run as both player and coach at the club.

English Football League Predictions

The big kick-off is upon us again and those experts in the know from the world of TV and press have been busy telling us how it all ends, even before it has begun! As usual fixed odds in focus have joined in via their e-zine service Tipped at the Post.

In the Premiership, although Liverpool have spent big, they are not quite there yet and consequently are likely to fall short of Man Utd and Chelsea again. The Blues will be keen to regain their crown, but United still appear to have the edge. Arsenal are perhaps, one season away from being genuine challengers again; however, in Van Persie they do have a player capable giving the likes of Rooney, Ronaldo, Gerrard and Drogba a run for their money, with regards to player of the season. Spurs are getting closer to the big 4, but they are still not close enough and are more likely to be battling for the UEFA spots with Portsmouth, Villa, West Ham and Newcastle.

The likes of Reading, Everton, Sunderland and maybe surprisingly Derby can all make mid-table finishes. Most people will have the Rams as certainties to make an instant return to the Championship, but in Billy Davies they have a talented manager capable of keeping their heads above water. At the bottom Blackburn and Man City can stay out of trouble – just; with the rest in a real battle. Wigan have signed a lot of players, but too many of them have a lot to prove and Middlesbrough – with some un-inspiring signings – could join them in the bottom two. Of the remaining 3 teams, Bolton might struggle to cope post Allardyce and slip out at the death, leaving Birmingham and Fulham breathing huge sighs of relief.

Charlton, with a good manager and plenty of cash, are more than capable of jumping straight back up from the Championship and taking Wolves along with them. Last season will have been a good experience for the black country outfit. Sheff U have an impressive forward line, but defence is a worry and the play-off’s look a more likely option together with Watford, Cardiff and one from Norwich, Coventry and Southampton. West Brom may well suffer a Wembley hang over and just miss out. Mid-table is probably the best Sheffield Wednesday, Ipswich and Palace; with Leicester, Hull and QPR improving on last term, but not significantly. Colchester did remarkably well in their first year up, but are likely to find it a great deal tougher second time around and Preston are likely to suffer from the loss of David Nugent. Bristol City and Blackpool are more than capable of consolidating, but the others look vulnerable. Barnsley can just about survive, likewise Plymouth; leaving Stoke Burnley and Scunthorpe fighting the drop.

In League One, Forest are everybody’s tip for promotion, but they look destined to miss out again. They have brought in Neil Lennon, but it’s a very tough division and you have to wonder about his legs. Tipped at the Post’s two for automatic promotion are Doncaster and Millwall. The Yorkshire club are very ambitious and James Hayter is a cracking signing at that level. The Lions young side finished well and Willie Donachie will have them spot on. Huddersfield, Oldham and Luton are taken to fill the play-off places with Forest; just ahead of Carlisle, Swansea, Yeovil and Southend. Bristol Rovers can have a brighter season than many are suggesting, as can Hartlepool and Walsall, all 3 coming up together. Brighton, Tranmere, Crewe and Port Vale seem set for pretty uninspiring seasons; and Gillingham and Leyton Orient look certain to be bottom half material. Leeds need some luck with their appeal against the 15 point penalty, otherwise they could slip straight through. Swindon can stay up at their expense, but Bournemouth, Northampton and Cheltenham look to have it all on to avoid the drop.

In League Two Paul Ince can get one over Fergie – Darren that is! MKD can just pip Peterborough at the top, with Shrewsbury joining them. Notts County, Darlington and Rotherham are taken to make the play-off’s along with surprise packages Bury. Chesterfield, Bradford and Rochdale should all go close; with Hereford, Wycombe and Mansfield not too far behind. Lincoln have probably missed their chances over the past 5 years and Terry Butcher will not find life easy at Brentford. The two newcomers can hold their own, but the rest might struggle with Chester and Accrington Stanley making way for the return of Torquay and Oxford, who are taken to make their League comebacks.

Where to Buy a Machine Vise

Any wood working enthusiast will tell you the perfect addition to his set of tools is the machine vise. This is because these machines are versatile in what they can do, and allow you to press several pieces of wood together without worrying about clamping problems.

In fact, if you know someone in your family who is a miller, a milling machine vice could make a great gift, since a woodworker can never have enough vices for projects, which need to be completed. Any large project, which is undertaken, may require up to three different precision machine vises, depending on the size of what is being clamped and how long it needs to be held.

By purchasing a quality milling machine vise, you can be sure you are getting the right clamp you need for your project. Machine vises, which do not offer precision adjustments, are often bad for delicate work, as you could unknowingly cut into the wood while clamping it to ensure a seal. With precision vises, you will get the perfect clamp without cutting into the wood.

Because machine vises are such a popular item in any tool users’ arsenal, there are a wide variety of uses for them, not to mention the different styles, which are available. There are some types of vises, which can be applied freely in order to offer a firm clamp, and others, which attach to a table in order to ensure the perfect fit.

If you are not sure which type of machine vice you need, you should consider the benefits of both, and perhaps have both available in your tool arsenal. With free standing machine vises, you can complete your project and clamp it anywhere you wish. These are often best for larger projects.

With machine vices, that are large enough to be attached to a work bench or table, it is wise to have a smaller project, since the vise cannot be moved. Because they are anchored, these vises usually offer a superior grip, and can therefore clamp better than free standing varieties.

In addition to these types of machine vises, there are also large and small vices, depending on your needs. If you frequently work with wood, you should probably have several different sizes available at your disposal.

In addition, when shopping around for a machine vice, you will note that there are many manufacturers, which offer different pounds of pressure and precision control. Deciding how much compression power you need beforehand can help you pick the perfect vise.

Resistance Bands Exercises for Men And Why You Need Them

Are resistance band exercises for men any good? Simply put you better believe they are! This article will explain why they are an excellent tool that you can have in your fitness arsenal and will show why resistance bands workouts for men may even be better than the traditional ‘iron bar’ training techniques.

Muscles are dumb:

At the end of the day, our muscles are dumb, end of story, our muscles don’t know whether they are been trained using dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells, plates, bands, ropes or any other piece of equipment. All our muscles can relate to is whether they are actually being stimulated in a workout. This is one reason why your training regime should include resistance bands exercises for men.

Full range of motion:

When you train with bands you can work the muscle in it’s entirety, because of the elastic nature of resistance training you will be training your muscles fully and there will be constant tension in them throughout the positive and negative portion of each rep. This is not the case with traditional training.

Three planes of motion:

Another benefit of resistance bands exercises for men is you can workout in all three planes of motion, the sagital, transverse and the frontal plane. Being able to workout in all three planes of motion is a great way of training because you will be moving and exercising your body in a way in which it wants, and you will be working muscles in tandem.

Transitioning from one exercise to the next exercises is a breeze:

When you incorporate resistance bands exercises for men into your workout you can easily (and safely) transition from one exercise to another. You don’t need to have a tonne of different equipment because with one simple continuous loop band you can do a host of exercises.

You can increase or decrease level of resistance with ease:

Being able to increase or decrease the level of resistance or intensity of the exercise is another top benefit of resistance bands workouts for men. You won’t to have a complete set of dumbbells or plates, a quick change of stance or positioning can easily and safely switch up the resistance to make the resistance band exercise you are doing easier of more difficult.

Resistance bands exercises for men always recruit the trunk muscles:

Working with resistance bands means you can always incorporate your trunk or abs in each and every movement. You will have to stabilise with your core in every exercise because of the elasticity nature of the bands. This is excellent for building core strength without actually having to spend extra time focussing on building up your core muscles separately.

As you can see they are some great benefits of training using resistance bands exercises for men. They are other benefits also and there are tonnes of exercises you can do. Essentially any exercise you can do with other equipment you can do with bands. You really should have these fabulous pieces of kit in your arsenal.
