A sturdy resistance band suited to strength training of larger muscles
on 6 August 2014
I've been using this resistance band for strength training and I'm very happy with it. In particular I've used it for seated row exercises, standing twists (with the band anchored to a chin-up bar), lying leg curls (again anchored to a bar; great way to feel the hamstrings work hard) and just as importantly for stretches, especially for the large muscles of the quadriceps.
To reduce the risk of injury caused by a band suddenly snapping, I do check all the way around the band for any sign of nicks or tears. I've been using the band a couple of times a week for several months and so far I've seen no sign of wear or tear.
The only downside I can offer is that the latex material of the band does leave a strong odour on the hands for a few hours, even after washing a couple of times. However, it's not an unpleasant odour (though you might find that normally placid cats suddenly want to bite your hands).
