Rubberbanditz fitness resistance bands are versatile, easy to use, and travel well.

They are designed to be used with or without weights and are complimentary for dynamic workouts. They work great for pull ups, calistenics, weightlifting, powerlifting, CrossFit, speed and agility, pole work, aerial routines, pilates, yoga, and much more. The bands intensify strengthening and stretching while creating stamina, flexibility, and toning.

Product Description

These exercise bands are 41" (104 cm) in length and come in three sizes with varying resistances and colors. The bands are made out of natural rubber latex that is over 99.998% free of soluble proteins (latex allergens). This product not recommended to be used by people with latex sensitivity.

 

Rubberbanditz latex bands are made through a layering process to help prevent breakage.

The bands create wide ranges of varying tension levels and can be stretched up to 2½ times their original length.

 

Rubberbanditz fitness resistance bands are extremely durable and travel well. There was only a slight coloration change noticed if the bands were left for a prolonged period in outside elements of sunlight and rain.

Athlete Evaluation

Rubberbanditz fitness resistance bands where used over a period of six weeks, and were used when doing various bodyweight and yoga exercises. My personal favorite exercises with the band are the bicycle core work and assisted quad-lity stretching.

 

The bicycle core work helped me to activate my core and place my hips in proper position to gain the most out of this exercise.

 

Assisted quad-lity stretching worked well on my psoas. Sitting at a computer shortens them, and I am always fighting to find gain length. Each evening, I did 30 second and 60 second holds, alternating legs while practicing muscle activation then release methods of stretching.

Rubberbandiz Are Worth It

Rubberbanditz fitness resistance bands are durable, easy to use, and are an excellent tool to have in your gym tool box. The bands are tough on muscles and, as a result, create new pathways for strength, yet are safe on joints so that you can continue your fitness for many years to come. I would highly recommend this product.
