These are nice bands. I have pretty thick thighs, and I am not sure if this causes the bands to constantly roll up. I have noticed others doing exercises on IG, and do not appear to have this issue, thick thighs or not. These are okay if you are doing exercises that do not require a lot of movement, such as squats. I tried these on the stair climber, and they kept getting twisted and they became ineffective at that point. Actually cutting off circulation. Very annoying. I ended up just taking these off. I do not think the lightest band is even necessary, it has no resistance at all. I will keep giving these a try, but if I could find some that stay in "band form" while doing complex exercises, I would not use these again.
These were my first bands ever and I bought them to do my 8 day obsession work outs but we're very disappointed. I did day one and felt with them rolling I figured it was because I wasn't used to them ad probably had them in wrong but day two which was leg day they were a major pain in the a**. I put them on and instant rolling happened no matter which band and where I put it. I'm 5'4 227lbs my thighs are thick. I figure they would roll when I had them above my knees but even at my calves they just rolled. I have a tight schedule to work with and I wasted half of my time fixing the dang things. If your a bigger God don't get them. Now if you have smaller thighs then go for it. They haven't broken yet though I have been fighting with them so that's good I just wish they didn't roll. I will strictly use them for arm exercises.
These were great at first, but they have started to warp after a few weeks of use. Especially the black one, which is getting narrow/thin spots and looks like it might not last much longer. The logo is peeling off of them also, and little tiny bits of white paint are getting everywhere when I use them. I'm not using them in any extreme way, either, just normal use on an almost daily basis.
They work. But I only use them an hour a day and after less than a month they are stretched enough that only the black one offers any useful amount of resistance and they roll up and pinch even if you wear gym pants while using them. They are a pain to unstick and unroll between types of exercise. I think if they were thicker length wise, as in wider, they would roll less. Not sure of a solution for they losing resistance so quickly.
Three months into using these bands, they just get worse. They roll and ride up. I try to double band them and they stick together, making it difficult to keep up with my workout. Once they roll up, I have to pause my workout because it takes so much time to get them flat again. Not to mention, getting them into that little bag is quiet the feat. There isn't an easy way to slide them in since the suction together upon touching.
I was very excited to try these out after reading all the great reviews. Especially from people who were using them for the 80 Day Obsession workouts because that's what I needed them for. The packaging is really nice and I love the variety of resistance. The first couple of times using them I was in love! That love faded though once the powdery coating on them faded too. No matter if I wore pants or shorts, no matter where I placed them on my legs or even how careful I was with my movements the bands would roll in on itself CONSTANTLY. It was annoying to say the least. And when it did it stuck to itself (if that makes sense). So much so that it wasn't something as simple as just unrolling it real quick to get back into the workout. Maybe it's me or maybe it's the bands but ended up a little disappointed with them.
Make sure you read that these Are latex!!! I didn’t and paid for it dearly. They are full of the powdery latex residue as well. Says in the description that they don’t smell like rubber but they do. It’s my fault for not reading what they were made from but I’m currently suffering from an allergic reaction to latex in my eyes after using these for the first time. I was working out. Sweating. Wiped my eyes and they instantly started burning.
