When I was in the hospital, my doctor recommended that I begin working out. I had seen these bands before but wasn't sure if they really worked. I needed something low impact and could easily use. So I ordered them. It has been a few weeks and I have been pleasantly surprised. I can feel the difference. My arms and shoulders are getting stronger. I'm beginning to show some improvement that my wife is noticing. So much so that she is using them while I'm at work. This is a good product. Cheaper than weights and I believe more versatile. I can simulate exercises that I used to do while in the Corps. I wanted something low impact because of surgeries that I've had and these work great. Started with the lowest possible just to get used to them. Now working with the next higher resistance. After this quick workout, I feel like I've done something good for my health. Highly recommend
I got these for 80 Day obsession in 5'2 130 lbs and they are constantly rolling never had them not roll. So sad, just buy the beach body ones and save your money. It is very uncomfortable when they roll and I would rather focus on my workout instead of the rolling band.
Garbage. While they haven't broken yet (which is why they get 1 star), these roll up and stick together so that they're practically unusable during a workout. I spend more time trying to unroll/un-stick than I do actually working out.
All of the bands have broken. They all break at the spot where they join the band to make a loop.
In general the bands have a good amount of resistance and the 5 included are a good mix from lowest to highest resistance. I have been using them for IT Band rehab for the past few months, starting with the lowest resistance. But after a few weeks of use they stretch at the joint and then break. I just move up to the next higher resistance and, however they are all broken now.
If you do buy these don't expect them to last long.
I have had these bands for several weeks, I use them daily, and thus far they have been perfect. I had never really integrated resistance band exercises into my routine but I am glad i did. These bands are great for a bunch of very effective workouts on your upper and lower body. I wasn’t sure how best to use them but luckily they come with a very straightforward pamphlet that covers a bunch of great excercises. The carrying case is also a nice plus because without it they would add clutter for sure. I definitely recommend! Edit: unfortunately after a month or so my heavy has ripped...so not quite as durable as I had hoped.
They roll something terrible! I have tried to double the bands, and they still roll. Then they stick to themselves and it take a while to get them back to normal. An hour workout will turn into 2 with these bands.
I used them for the first time today and I am already returning them. They rolled for nearly every exercise, but thats not even my main reason for the return. I am returning because I cant stand the smell!! It has been on my body all day even after showering and washing my hands several times. Its making me sick to my stomach. I am going to order from a brand that is non-latex and hope I don't have the same issue. Though I am returning, I gave 2 stars since they still felt pretty strong and the resistance was good when they weren't rolling.
I got these to use for beach body’s 80 Day Obsession workout. I spend more time trying to get them to lay flat than I actually do working out. They not only roll but get stuck together. It’s horrible. Save your money and buy a thicker band.
I bought these as I wanted more variety in my fitness bands. However, these bands do not fit my needs at all. The lightest band is TOO light so I'll never use it. The black band, which is the heaviest, is not heavy enough. Also, I wear shorts 99% of the time when I'm working out. When these are on my legs or thighs, they constantly are rolling up and do not stay in place well at all. I can double loop the bands for more resistance, but I was looking for bands that had less stretch than these do. I honestly will not repurchase and most likely end up tossing them in the trash.
