OUR VERDICT

Coresteady CrossFit Exercise Workout Band is less versatile than every other entry on the list but that is as much the product's strength as it is its weakness. Using the band, you'll be able to nail pull-ups, dips, muscle-ups, deadlifts, squats, and upright rows.

FitBeast Exercise

Train Every Muscle

FitBeast Exercise Resistance Bands Set is the biggest, most complete package we've looked at. Inside the package, you'll find five door resistance bands, four soft cushioned handles, two soft ankle straps, a door anchor, and a waterproof tote bag. As you would imagine, the set will definitely meet your training needs, doesn't matter the muscle group(s) you're currently focusing on/targeting.

As far as construction is concerned, the reinforced buckles incorporating these reverse design connection are more convenient to disassemble than standard buckles.

The high-quality natural latex that these bands are made from is eco-friendly, durable, and especially elastic. The latex prevents the bands from snapping and/or deforming, even after you stretch them over 30000 times.

The ankle strap is equally durable but, at the same time, surprisingly comfortable.

The solid metal rings on the bands' sides make these things versatile and easy to use. The cushioned non-slip handles are equally comfortable and practical. The door anchor protects the door frame. It is somewhat tricky though, so we would recommend carefully following the instruction guide that comes supplied with the package.

Again, FitBeast Exercise Resistance Bands Set is the most complete package on the list. You'll be able to workout/target/recruit every major muscle group. You'll be able to train at home as well as on the road. The set is equally suitable for commercial and home use.

OMERIL Skin-Friendly

Suitable for any and all Training

OMERIL Resistance Bands Set is an excellent set for people who prefer to stay in shape but don't go too hard when it comes to working out. Since the most high-resistant band here offers 11.5-kilogram resistance, we wouldn't recommend this set to experienced athletes.

Other than that, we don't have any issues with these bands. They're equally suitable for stretch training, weight loss workouts, yoga, pilates, physical therapy and recovery, as well as for increasing your body's flexibility.

The 6.8-kilogram yellow band and the 9-kilogram resistance red band are there as well, so you'll be able to apply different resistance and exercise pretty much any muscle group.

As far as the bands' composition goes, the natural latex is non-toxic, eco-friendly, long-lasting, highly stretchable, and pleasant to the touch. The bands offer a natural, convenient grip that is equally firm and comfortable. They're less than 1 millimetre thick and 15 centimetres wide, so you'll be able to bend and twist these elastic bands however you want.

In short, OMERIL Resistance Bands Set is the best set for beginners and intermediate users. The tote bag that comes supplied with the set will let you carry these bags with you to the gym and back home.

Hybrid Sport PREMIUM

Choose Your Resistance Level

Hybrid Sport PREMIUM Set does not discriminate. The five bands included in the set couldn't be any more different (resistance-wise).

The easiest, green band offers just 4.5 kilograms of resistance, while the hardest, black band brings that resistance number to 18 kilograms. Between these bands, there are the 6.8-kilogram blue band, 9-kilogram yellow band, and 13.6-kilogram red band. Needless to say, the variety makes the set equally suitable for experienced athletes and beginners alike.

These loop bands will let you exercise all body muscles. They can be used for fat burning exercise as well as bodybuilding. Exercising with these bands, you'll be able to strengthen your chest and shoulders, biceps and triceps, thighs and glutes, and more. You can use them for pilates and yoga as well as during strengthening workouts like weightlifting and endurance training.

The recyclable professional-grade latex that these bands are constructed from stays flat even after excessive use. You won't have to worry about snapping. The bands don't leave marks on your clothes.

In other words, you could recommend the Hybrid Sport PREMIUM Set to pretty much anyone. The set is versatile and affordable. The tote bag that comes supplied with the bands is pretty nice too.

BESTOPE Non Slip

The Cotton Approach

BESTOPE Booty Builder Resistance Bands Set are very much suitable for booty exercises but it's not like these bands can't be used for other exercises too. These are nice bands, but we do have two issues with them.

First, the light fabric is easily soiled. Second, the people behind these bands don't mention the exact resistance. All we can tell you is that the green is the lowest-resistance band, the purple one is harder/heavier than green but less so than pink and that the grey band is the highest-resistance band in the set.

We've no issues with the bands' composition though. Incorporating soft, skin-friendly cotton, these bands don't entail the usual issues with slipping and curling that plague rubber and latex bands. In other words, the bands never slip up or down or roll during legs exercises. You won't have to re-adjust the hip band during weighted squats either.

At the same time, the thick, high-quality, and surprisingly elastic cotton won't stretch out or break during use. The smooth material is especially comfortable and you won't have to worry about these bands wearing your skin out.

Summing up, BESTOPE Booty Builder Resistance Bands Set is pretty much ideal for booty exercises and alright for other exercises. You'll be able to improve your hip curve, modify the leg line, strengthen overall body ability, and nail rehabilitation training.

Coresteady CrossFit

Mobility and Core Strength

Dissimilar to every other entry within this lineup, Coresteady CrossFit Exercise Workout Band includes but one band. It is a pretty good band though. Sure, some tote bag to go with the band wouldn't hurt. But that's about the only problem we have with the product.

Using the band, you'll be able to improve your strength and motion range across all major muscle groups.

The highly stretchable material allows for controlled muscle tension in multiple directions, making the band equally suitable for resistance training, stretching, and flexibility exercises that always lead to positive health effects like improved posture, core strength, and mobility.

The band is especially suitable for performing assisted pull-ups, dips, and/or muscle-ups.

The bands' length/circumference measures 208 centimetres (one continuous loop). It is 3.1-centimetre wide and 4-millimetre thick, meaning you would not have been able to tear the band even if you wanted to. Though the package doesn't include anything that even remotely resembles a tote bag, you do get these 2 loops that help with transportation.

All in all, Coresteady CrossFit Exercise Workout Band is less versatile than every other entry on the list but that is as much the product's strength as it is its weakness. Using the band, you'll be able to nail pull-ups, dips, muscle-ups, deadlifts, squats, and upright rows.

What Is a Resistance Band?

A resistance band is a piece of exercise equipment made of elastic material that is used for various types of strength training and rehabilitation. The soft and flat resistance bands are intended for physical therapy, yoga, and pilates, whilst thick bands are designed for home fitness to add extra resistance to a regular workout routine. The heavy-resistance bands are used to isolate or recruit targeted muscle groups during basic exercises (pull-ups, push-ups, squats, etc.). Adding weight resistance, these bands make these exercises even more challenging.

Apart from that, you can use these resistance bands for physical therapy and recovery as well as for increasing your body's flexibility. Provided you execute the exercises right, these things can also lead to improved posture and mobility.

A jump rope is a highly effective way to warm up muscles before your resistance training. If you need to target specific muscle groups, then the ankle/wrist weights, barbells, or dumbbells can be a good addition to your training routine.
