Resistance Bands Review

I'm not a big gym membership kind of guy, but I enjoy working out at home. My wife is a gym rat, even as she nears the end of her pregnancy. She belongs to two gyms and she sometimes works out at home with me. I got her a different set of bands, because she wanted to use those for stretching and light work outs. I knew I wouldn't like those bands. I do have some free weights, but I only have one dumbell from 15-25 lbs and none any higher. That limits my exercises. I wanted something that I could add extend the weights, but without taking up a ton of room and taking a dent out of my wallet. That's when I found these bands.

These come with 7 straps from 5 to 35 lbs of resistance. It has 4 handles and straps (also includes ankle straps and door straps). Basically, this set has everything you need, plain and simple.

My wife didn't know I had ordered these until they arrived at home. She told me there were some fitness bands and they "actually look really nice". This coming from her got my attention, because she belongs to two gyms with all sorts of equipment, pools, etc. I took them out of the included bag, and she was right. These are very nicely made. I was expecting a set of bands that I could "get by" using, but I can do more than that with these. They have anything and everything you could need included. The bag is a nice touch too for keeping everything neat and organized.

I like that you can double up on the bands if you need more weight. There are hundreds of exercises that you can do with these bands. You can check YouTube for proof. I made a short video of some exercises that you might find helpful in getting you started (or at least give you an idea of how the bands work

As I mentioned earlier, I am very impressed with this set. I like the versatility of these bands, they pack up neatly and compactly, and they are a very reasonable retail price too. I intend to pick up a set of these for my dad who just quit the gym and is eyeing retirement in 2 short months. I think he will like these as well.
