Summary: The product arrived as promised - everything is in, helpful instructions and accompanying media. Haven't tried everything yet - some exercises seem to be "too much trouble" to perform when compared to gym equipment. But overall, if you stick to certain routines as described and chose the ones that are less time consuming, it would work.
Summary: I bought this to work out with P90x and Power 90. It works great for both of us. It has enough weight to keep us using this product for a long time. I have not had any issues with the bands breaking.
Summary: These resistance bands are great! I purchased the 24 piece set for myself, and then ordered a smaller set for my dad so that he can get in better shape. The quick clip system makes it really easy to change the bands. I have used some of the other resistance bands out there, and it is a real pain to change handles for different weights. The bag for the 24 piece set is the perfect size to hold all of the bands.
Summary: I must say I recently purchased these bands with some reluntance and doubts. While I am by no means a pro bodybuilder, I do weight train and have done concrete construction for 35 years so I am used to hard work. I really didn't think there would be much to these things but............WOW! was I wrong.The safety factor was a real concern for me (read reviews on other bands) but after receiving my order that fear was alleviated.

Summary: Strength and muscle size come from subjecting the muscle to resistance. If the resistance is greater than the muscle can handle, the muscle fibers tear and then rebuild STRONGER than before. This is the body's natural way of adapting to the workload. Milo, the Greek who invented resistance training, started lifting a calf. As the calf grew heavier, Milo's strength and muscle size increased. The muscle doesn't recognize free weight from resistance tube from cow.
Summary: Let me preface this review by saying I am very happy with this product. It is high quality and it improves my work outs. OK, now that I got that out of the way.... I really can't see replacing free weights, a dip station, and a pull up bar with bodylastics. In addition I don't see the value in most of what comes with this set. Most people won't get value out of using 2 orange bands or 2 black bands, etc, free weights is much better.
Summary: Bought these so the wife and I could each have a set of bands for use with P90X. They exceeded our expectations. We had been using some cheap bands picked up at department stores. While they did work, the overall build quality seemed lacking. We also didn't like the fact they are usually just labeled "light", "medium", "heavy". What does that mean really?
Summary: These bands are excellent quality. I purchased these to help rehab a rotator cuff issue as well as to incorporate into my Bowflex workout. As stated, these bands are excellent quality; much better than the G*ld's Gym brand that I had a few of. If you break these bands, you must have cut them with a knife as they are really sturdy and strong and live up to their reputation.
Summary: It should be known that I am a workout partner at [...] and by using workouts exclusive to bodylastics resistance bands I have gone from 200lbs and a 42 inch waist to 200lbs and a 35 inch waist. I'm extremely loyal to this product because it works. By using it nearly daily since last August and some before my wedding a couple years ago. I've seen tremenedous muscle growth and fitness improvement. I've also seen the improvements my fellow workout partners at [...
