A Challenging and Portable Alternative to Heavy Weights.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bodylastics MAX XT Resistance Bands Sets - These top notch Home and Travel Gyms include 6 of our Best Quality ANTI-SNAP exercise tubes, heavy Duty Components: Anchors/Handles/Ankle Straps, and exercise training resources. (Sports)
I've used resistance bands in the past and have never been very impressed. I always felt that they were a poor substitute for heavy weights. Recently, however, I needed to increase the resistance range of my home-gym equipment, but I no longer had the room to accommodate any more large weight plates.
I chose Bodylastics because they have the equivalent weight written on each of the colour-coded bands, and you can easily re-configure the resistance using the carabiners that are attached to end of the bands.
I now incorporate them into my workouts, alongside my traditional weight-lifting equipment. I find that they are particularly useful for warm-ups and isolation exercises.
Many men are wary of resistance bands because they assume that they are only for women or the puny beginner, but I find that they are just as challenging as any cast iron equivalent--and they're also very portable!
