King Athletic Resistance Band Set Review

Last year of January, I wrote a resolution of losing weight. Ever since January 2014, I've now lost 18.6 lbs and I've been trying to lose at least 5 lbs. more. Visit my blog post HERE to read about my resolution. :)

So, I've made modifications on my diet and I'm now working out regulary (Insanity, yes!). I've also started strength training but since we have limited space at home, I look for other ways to do strength training which doesn't require too much space as well as storage space. Exercise equipments wouldn't fit in our home and our apartment's gym has limited equipments, and usually, somebody else is using the equipments. I can't commit to going to a gym because I wouldn't be able to commit in driving to and from the gym regularly. So, when I learned about resistance bands, I was excited because I can start strength training at the comfort of my own home.
 The King Athletic Resistance Resistance Bands arrived in a drawstring bag. The bag contains the following:
- 5 Resistance Bands in the following color and resistance:
         - Yellow: 6 lbs
         - Blue: 10 lbs
         - Red: 15 lbs
         - Green: 18 lbs
         - Black: 20lbs.
- 2 Foam Handles
- 2 Ankle Straps
- 1 Door Anchor

The bag of resistance bands with all the accessories only weighs 762 grams. I like that it doesn't weigh much because I can bring it on the go as well. The drawstring bag included can be used as a storage bag or a carrying bag for the bands.

The different resistance in each band is nice as well because I can start off with the lowest resistance and work my way up until I can do the one with the highest resistance. During the first few reps, I felt like the bands aren't working but as I do more reps, I felt the resistance and I like how my muscles get a bit sore after doing a series of set.

The foam handles are soft and comfortable to use. I also like the ankle straps as well as the door anchor because I can also work my legs, thighs and other muscle groups. The bands are soft and smooth and are very stretchy. When unstretched, the bands measure approximately 39 inches.

Each resistance band has a metal clip on each side and I like how easy this is to attach and detach from the foam handles. There are illustrations on the drawstring bag, which are ways on how to use the resistance bands, for those who's just starting on resistance bands which I think is nice.

I like that these haven't snapped or broke yet and I like how I only need little space when doing the exercises using these bands. I also like how effective they are and that I only need a small space when storing them.
