Why pull ups? Pull ups are a great way to strengthen your entire upper body. This multi-purpose exercise is composed of complex movements that allow you to engage multiple muscle groups. This offers a few distinct advantages such as a more efficient workout and decreased risk of injury.
Want to add pull ups into your workout routine but haven't yet gained the muscles to do more than two or three pull ups on your own? Our bands will allow you to maximize your time at the pull up bar and capitalize on all the great benefits pull ups have to offer.
Why Bands? Our resistance bands offer pull up assistance, but unlike machines the bands allow you a full range of motion. You can also easily adjust the resistance. If you want to increase the resistance from medium to maximum, simply stretch the circular band up to 2.5 times its original length or combine with lighter bands for extra tension.
Which band is right for me? We get asked this all the time. We typically suggest that a person start out lifting about half of their body weight over the bar. For some people we might suggest a single band, but since the bands are all the same length, you can combine some bands to equal the same assistance as others. Why would you do this? Well, as you get stronger you can lower the assistance to account for your new strength by using different bands. For example, a 200 lb person might typically need a green band, but a purple combined with a black band offers roughly the same amount of resistance while giving you three different levels of assistance (one with the heavy band, one with robust, and one with both bands). Check out the list below to figure out your correct combination:
I was comparing resistance bands principally for use in assisting me on my chin up bar. Rubberbanditz has a premium price over these but appear identical. Same colors for the listed resistance range.
So, I order these from Functional Fitness (FF) and when they arrive lo and behold I receive Rubberbanditz brand not FF. Kinda weird.
Next, I see the #4 purple band from FF is selling as an Amazon Prime item (free shipping) whereas I just bought mine from them less than a week ago and shipping was an additional cost...not a Prime item.
Anyway, compare to the Rubberbanditz brand, watch the evolving shipping costs and purchase your best deal.
They work fine as intended. I am getting back in shape after winter and need a little help on the pull up bar. After securing band to your bar, loop your knee or foot (for more assistance) and ride the band to the bottom of your set, using it to help lift your body weight as you complete your chin or pull up...
I have been a Personal Trainer for more than 10 years using resistance bands for my clients and myself. This band looked well made as many others I owned before, but unfortunately it broked from normal use in about a month, when they usaually last for a couple of years. Im pretty sure it was a manufacture defect or something. I hope this company is 'customer service oriented', that they read this reviews and do something about them (like replacing their products when they malfunction), because other wise I really discourage any reader to buy from them.
If you see the pictures you can easily appreciate that the band broke in a straight cut, probably because the rubber was dried for being too much time in storage.
Still using it on assisting me with my pull ups. I have been worried about it breaking but it is still holding strong. I followed the chart to get the correct band for what it suggested and it was a great suggestion. I am now up to 8 pull ups unassisted and hope to get more. :)
