My bands are AMAZING for adding resistance to the bodyweight exercises and even for replacing some others such as the abductor or hamstring curl machines; trust me, these bands will kick your ASS literally!
If you're following FitGurl Meand Hot Body at Home on the Fitgurlmel App these are an absolute must. You may also use them with a la carte exercises from my APP.
Put simply, my bands allow to cover certain basic + high level functions and, unlike rubber bands, these won't burn or catch you skin + they'll outlast rubber/latex bands by 500% more time:
WARM UP + MOBILIZE: muscles are meant to be flexible, and they work best at a certain (warm) temperature. These bands allow you to put a little extra oomph before you train and during your rest + mobility days so that your muscles can function at their healthiest capacity, because stiff muscles are brittle rather than strong.
ASSES NEUROMUSCULAR DEVELOPMENT: Allowing your body to move without the impact generated by excessive plyo or weight training before reaching their optimal temperature allows you to asses where you're at before or after a training session. Stiff hips, clicking knees, pinchy shoulders, etc. are not just annoying, but a clear sign that something is not right and will only get worse. By properly activating and assessing your movement patterns using my bands, you can reduce injury rate and have improved training capacity. Remember, an injured athlete is a potential couch potato, so let's stay healthy and mobile.
BUILD AESTHETIC MUSCLES THAT CAN MOVE: You put in the work with the fundamentals, now it's time to put the finishing touches on those sculpted muscles and set your booty on fire. Ever did 100 banded drop squats after 5 sets of 10 hip thrusts? If you did, you know what's coming your way (FIRE FIRE FIRE). You haven't? Babe, it's time you get this done!

***Sold as a set of four resistance bands. Machine washable, just skip fabric softener and dryer since they destroy the elastic fibers over time. Do not leave them exposed to the elements/weather since heating and cooling will destroy the elastic fibers much faster than under regular use. Store in a dry, cool place.
