Do Resistance Bands Work?
Yes! Resistance Bands work. Because you get tension when both pulling and releasing the band, they tend to build muscle faster and give you a more challenging workout. Unlike weights that change the resistance due to gravity when doing a rep, resistance bands have no gravitational pull. When working out, especially doing HIIT training where you move at a faster pace, weights tend to use gravity and centrifugal force, depending on how fast your rep is. Using Resistance Bands removes that variable giving you a more productive workout.
The bands are of great quality, the selection options are outstanding and it is a US company. The warranty is great, tho I use mine in a commercial setting and can not take advantage, but doubt you would ever need to if only used at home. The useful life of anything in a highly used commercial setting is going to be shortened exponentially, but these do a great job of holding up. The only area I am not the biggest fan of is the handles, which I would prefer something a little thicker/heavier, although this is subjective. Also, a heavier duty handle would also certainly be fatter in overall diameter, which I would not want.
Met high expectations
I have nothing but complements for Fitcord. The quality is second to none, and customer service is awesome; they spent time on the phone with me talking me through the product line, and what would work best for us. The band wad shipped out the same day I ordered it. We have already ordered another band.
Stacy and the crew are most amazing, accommodating a change in my order without difficulty, without complaint, without extra fees. I’ve been recommending FitCord to my classes. You may pay more than what you would at Target or Big 5, but you actually can get personalized service in choosing the appropriate band/equipment for you! AND, their products are very well made. Can’t beat the quality of service or of the products. Lorraine G MPT ret.,CCEEA
Much better quality and more resistance than cheaper band alternatives. I had some concern about grip and sheath irritation from prior reviews, but these are both marked improvements from other resistance bands I have, so I believe those concerns to be about some movements in going from dumbbells or machines to resistance bands (like chest press specifically will put the band along your arms, but the sheath is actually smooth against my skin whereas my cheaper tube bands will pull on arm hairs). Therefore have had no issues and only seen marked improvements over my other two cheap band sets. Love that it’s made in USA and is a superior product, very happy with purchase. Safety design is a big bonus and is what got me interested to begin with, since I have toddlers around while exercising and could not trust my other bands to not randomly snap under some of the harder workout days.
Bought the 7lb and 12lb set thinking the 3lb would be too light for me. Actually just bought the 3lb for my father who is now 88 years old. Now I use them more than the 7lb and 12lb bands because they are the perfect resistance for warming up. The 7lb and 12lb are great for other things though like Pallof presses and bicep burn outs. They are actually the bands I used to fix my shoulder injuries before the 3lb bands got here.
Anyways, back to the 3lb bands. I use them daily. Before any workout and before bed. Have had all my bands since about April when I jacked up my shoulder on some weighted pull ups. Was waking up with horrible pain. Now that I think of it my shoulders have always been stiff from never properly warming them up before getting the bands. So after 4-5 months of daily use my shoulders feel better than they ever have. Pain is completely gone. Another bonus is that it somehow fixed my tennis elbow too.
Also wanted to add that after 4-5 months of daily use from 4 people the bands are showing no wear. These things feel like they are built to last a lifetime. I really do love that they are made in the USA. Thanks again to everyone at fit cord.
I am recuperating from a serious industry, and these bands are perfect for that. The quality is right there. I am very pleased.
Good quality and supports the use of the bands well.
I love the ease of use with these bands! Very well made.
Hubby is 6’4” and loves how this band fits him better than any of mine. Great purchase!
Very well made (and in the USA!). A good addition to my workout gear.
Very well made
Bands are everything I expected made well and performed well
Best bands out there period! Quality is unmatched. Support made in USA and small buisness. Definitely will be adding more to my home gym!
