I bought these bands to use with Tony Horton’s 10-Minute Trainer. For the most part these are great until you have to do a military press or an overhead tricep curl. These exercises require you to stand on the middle of the band and push all the way up until your arms are fully extended. For these exercises, the bands are too short for me and I worry how long they’ll last if I keep stretching them that far. I’m 6’0″ tall, so someone shorter might not have any problem. If you’re 6′ or taller, I would find something longer because these will disappoint. The B-Line bands used by Tony Horton for P90x and his other videos appear to be roughly twice as long as these.
These are good quality bands though. The grommets are strong and the clips are metal and thus, less prone to breaking. The door attachment and ankle accessory work fine. The “instruction manual” is a little sparse and simplistic but you can’t expect too much there. Suspiciously, I noticed that none of the exercises show the bands being lifted any higher than shoulder length.
EDIT: I increased my review to a 4 star after using the bands a while longer and speaking to their customer service. I also got a free orange band for my call. According to customer service the bands can actually stretch safely up to 5 times their original size (their max stretch is about 40 ft. although this makes them unusable). After 3 weeks of overhead use they still show no signs of wear or tear.
EDIT: Still on the fence about these. After 6 weeks of use I had to get the red band replaced after seeing several tears appear. Now I’m seeing tears in the black band and one tear in the new red band already. As far as I know I’m not using them inappropriately but I may have to go ahead and return the whole set.
