Bodylastics Resistance Bands Review

#1 Top Pick – Bodylastics

Bodylastics Max Tension Resistance Bands SetOur #1 top pick for excellent all around quality construction for both beginner and power users.  The padded handles reduce friction on the palms.  We especially like the large foam door stop on the end of the door anchor.  There is no way for this anchor to slip through cracks of aging or sloppily hung doors.  Unlike other systems, this door anchor does not get placed into the hinge-side crack of the door, therefore it won’t put stress on the hinges.

At the end of 2009, heavier D-rings were added to the handles and ankle straps.  Soft padding was added to the inside of the nylon webbing ankle straps and the trouble-prone clips where replaced with sturdy and smoothly polished heavy-duty aluminum clips.

In March of 2011, D.G.S. (Distance Governor Safety) Anti-Snap Technology was engineered into the center core of each tube to act as a governor which prevents the bands from being over-stretched, all without interferring with the execution of the exercises.  These are the safest bands you can buy.

In addition to the included workout manual, Bodylastics also offers free online workouts for its resistance bands owners.

Bodylastics maintains a superior A+ Better Business Bureau rating.
