11 Piece Resistance Bands Review

There are just some times I just don't feel like setting up my Bow Flex machine (letting it down and then putting it back up).  Sometimes I TRY to get a workout in by halfway doing HIIT, the best that I can, but then there are times where I just want a good toning workout...without the big bulky machines, without a tons of equipment.



The 11 Piece Resistance Bands are the perfect accessory or equipment that anyone can have.  There are different colored bands that range in different ranges of resistance or difficulty (easy to hard) and the set also comes with a set of handles, a set of ankle Velcro bands and another attachment that looks to be for triceps.

All of the above comes in it's own storage bag that has a Velcro closure.  The bands come in black, yellow, red, blue and green and each color represents the level of resistance.  Each band also has a metal clip that attaches to the other attachments (handles, ankles bands and tricep band).  

The resistance bands targets all parts of the body - chest, back, shoulders, arms and legs.  Some of the exercises you can do with these bands include: Chest Press, Seated Row, Rear Delt Fly, Lat Pulls, Tricep Extensions, Bicep Curls, Squats, Criss-Cross Outer Thigh and the Butt Blaster.



I've personally have used these bands, mainly for my arms and chest.  I can tell you, these bands, depending on the color and the resistance, can be tough!  I found that I had to go from a red (med-hard) to a blue when doing bicep curls.  I honestly believe you can get a very good toning workout from these bands and I have the sore biceps to prove it!

The 11 Piece Resistance Bands comes with a simple pamphlet, showing you the different exercises as well as instructions on how to perform each one.  It is recommended to start with a 5-10 minute warmup followed by a cool down stretch before and after your workout.  As with any exercise regimen, it's always best to consult with your doctor before attempting any workout.

I love the fact, that these bands and attachments have their own storage bag.  It makes it so much easier to keep up with all the bands and not have to see them thrown back in a corner somewhere.
