Cooking, Eating, and Enjoying Healthy Food!
Even though I’m still feeling under the weather today, I wanted to try out some new “toys” I got in the mail before I left for Thanksgiving vacation. These were not a huge investment (see links for pricing), and I wanted to spice up our exercise room.
Initial thoughts: These bands are TOUGH! I used the lowest level band (purple – 25-30 lbs), and I could barely do any of the exercises in the book. It just felt like I couldn’t even stretch the bands over my head with it looped under both feet. I could if it was looped under just one foot. So, I didn’t really follow the guidebook. Maybe they need to stretch out a bit? I’m definitely going to have to play around with these a bit to figure out a workable routine and find some exercises that I really like and feel like they give me a good workout. Next stop – YouTube.
Initial thoughts: These are pretty good. The side leg lifts were great with these – really burned. When I tried the ab crunch with rotation, I did have an issue with the band rolling up on me (ladies- think control top panty hose). But, once I got it all straight, it was a pretty good little tool to add to a workout. These are easily packable, and would be great to take with me while traveling.
