Since the coronavirus pandemic, many people have decided to bring the gym to their private home, where it has been shown that, despite everything, it is possible to do an adequate workout. In that sense, in the Showroom we focus – with the permission of the stationary bike and the treadmill – on one of the most popular things for exercising at home: elastic bands.
These fitness tapes that we present below are available on Amazon in five sets of different colors. Each unit also has a different tone and resistance level written on it. Ideal for all types of training, rubber bands are made of natural latex and will not change despite use. The article, one of the best sellers in the online store, has an average rating of 4.3 out of 5 and has accumulated almost 100,000 user ratings.
ELASTIC RUBBERS FOR EXERCISE AT HOME
This set of elastic fitness bands from the Gritin brand is composed of five resistance bands, perfect for use in any type of training or exercise: aerobic, cardiovascular, strength training, yoga, Pilates, CrossFit… More, and for greater comfort and speed to start playing sports, each rubber is a different color and includes an indication about the level of resistance they offer. “By having these five possibilities, you can combine exercises that require more strength with slower exercises,” explains Daniel Mig, user of Amazon. “They are very well staggered (…) They help me, not only to stretch, but also to strengthen. My knee hurt from running and, thanks to the exercises I did, I strengthened it a lot,” explains Marcel Arnó, a customer of the online store.
Each elastic band is made of high quality natural latex, safe, recyclable and non-allergic to the skin. This, the manufacturer points out, improves the comfort and performance provided by the bands without losing flexibility. Unlike other conventional rubber bands, it does not cause a burning or burning sensation in the wrists or ankles during training. “Very good quality. They have a good touch and a good ratio of hardness. “A good complement to the home gym,” celebrated Pedro N., a buyer of the same virtual platform. “They are resistant and, like others I have seen in stores, joining or cutting marks are not noticeable. They come together perfectly,” agreed F. Javier Martín, who gave these elastic bands a score of five stars.
EXERCISE WITH ELASTIC ROPES
Regarding durability, Gritin pointed out that after performing “tens of thousands of tests” the bands showed “superior elasticity.” Therefore, after stretching each tape to double its length, they can easily return to their original state without damage or breakage. Many Amazon users confirm this: “The quality of the material is good. I have other rubbers that, at a higher price, are not as resistant. Good for isolated work and / or specific rehabilitation of muscles,” says Antonio Mtpc, who has already tried it. “The bands have very good quality. You stretch them and they don’t change, like a lot of other rubbers,” added Danny, who also gave these tires the highest rating.
The game includes an exercise guide with pictures so that users – experts and beginners – can start training immediately. In addition, the purchase includes a portable storage bag that, besides making it easier to carry the elastic bands everywhere, also prevents them from being lost or left scattered around the house or the gym. “They come with a little guide where they recommend some exercises, and the truth is that they are not bad at all for the price they have. They are basic, but useful and at a very good price,” wrote Bejota, another user.
