Summary: I've added the Bodylastic bands to my exercise routine for the last 9 months to use as an at home supplement to my normal gym routine so I'll try to sum up the good the bad, and the ugly about these bands. Pros - I have found the bands to be well constructed, and so far they have been very sturdy with limited signs of wear (used about twice per week for 9 months).
Summary: I don't normally leave reviews on products but this one deserves a review. I have a home gym with a few iron weights. It's a hassle to change from one weight to the next so I gave elastics a try.I bought bands at a sports store and snap snap snap. I bought this product on Amazon and I am impressed. Solid handles and bands. I stretch them to their limit and no snapping. The kit comes with a strap that secures it to the door.
Summary: I've been using the bands for a couple of days and I must admit I am pleasantly surprised at the quality of all the components. I looked at other brands but am happy I chose Bodylastics. The bands themselves are made of a stretchy rubber like material and are super sturdy. The lower weight bands are slimmer than the heavier weight ones. The bands are attached to high quality clips that conveniently are labeled with their weight (5, 7, 13, 19 and 23 pounds).
Summary: After reading other reviews on other bands snapping while in use (yikes), I wanted to make sure I bought something that I could depend on. These have not disappointed me yet. Great accerories that come with it, nice bag and I've taken this on a couple of my deployments and no problems at all. Easy to use, strong and sturdy. Great purchase.
Summary: I was looking for a substitute for my local gym. I got really tired of waiting for machines and certain popular dumbbell weights. It really threw me off my rhythm! I did alot of research on different brands of resistance bands. I liked bodylapstics because of the inner nylon core in every band, the warranty, and the simplicity of the whole kit. I really feel my strength building with these bands. Best workout investment I ever made.
Summary: All the components of this package are extremely high quality. The enclosed booklet is chock full of literally dozens and dozens of exercises arranged in multiple ways for easy access and use. I was actually a little surprised at how high quality it was when I received it. That kind of surprise is always good! The bag is a little too small for everything that comes with this package.
Summary: This product is a great value. The only drawback is the length of the handle attachments when doing P90X routines. This can be easily modified by reading the information sent with the bands about how to properly use for P90X. Overall, the bands seem to be of excellent quality.
Summary: The Bodylastics system is complete with everything you need! The bands are easy and quick to put on and take off. These bands are strong too. I love the variety of free Bodylastics routines on Youtube! My workout originally consisted of pushups (using P90X Pro-Grade Powerstands), assisted pullups (using Elitefts bands), and inverted rows (using Lifeline Jungle Gym suspension straps). Now, I am adding back rows (using Bodylastics resistance bands) to my routine.
