Verified Purchase(What is this?)

I bought these on the recommendation of a colleague after the birth of my young son meant I no longer had the space for a free weights bench. Luckily I had not sold my dumbbells on Gumtree before I tried them! The weights claimed for each band bear no resemblance to reality: after thinking they seemed much easier than the claimed weights (10-50 lbs in 10 lbs increments) I tested them with a luggage scale. They are approximately yellow:5 lbs, green:9 lbs, red and blue:7 lbs and black, 11 lbs. Thus, not even in the order stated. Some need to be doubled to be of any use at all, such as the yellow one: you can get it (almost) to the claimed 10 lbs but it is about 5 metres long by then. Not useful to a normal-sized human.
The "guide" that comes with the bands is utter rubbish; it could have been made better if the writer had simply spent 10 minutes plagiarising Wikipedia prior to writing it.
Shorter version: Go elsewhere.
