I bought this since i am trying to build out a home gym type of setup. I think this is a great addition since i can do warm up for biceps triceps and squats. i am looking forward to using this regularly.
Loved this pilates bar. At first when I took the product out of the box my thoughts were, I'm returning this. I didnt think of the many banded workouts you can perform with this pilates bar. It's so easy to use and if you want more resistance just wrap the band around 1x or 2xs in your palm and itll give you the resistance want. I'm glad I added this to my home gym.
This is perfect pilates equipment you can do at home, with many different moves you can follow from little guide illustration! Works great, they are very strong. Highly recommend
I am pleasantly surprised by this product. I've been looking for pieces to add to my home gym, and added this last minute to an order. The video gives good suggestions for using the bar. I personally like the addition of exercises for bi- and tri-ceps. The bar itself, and the handles, are more sturdy than I expected. The cords give great resistance. My at home workouts have been enhanced by adding this equipment to my regimen.
WOW..I just received this pilates contraption today (Wednesday) and boy does this thing work for my injury. I have VERY tight hip flexors and within 5-10 minutes of using this thing i felt my hips and thighs opening up. I haven't even looked at the dvd yet. I just strapped my right leg on and started doing circular motions, fast and slow, left to right and i felt such a relief. A relief i have not felt in months. I tried doing stretches i found on youtube but i found it difficult to do by myself especially since my hips are weak and i am in so much pain but this device made it easy to lift the problem leg.
I am looking forward to seeing the dvd and doing different workouts with this device. I HIGHLY recommend this pilates device you wont regret it.
P.S. I am not affiliated in any way with this company or paid to write a review. Im just very happy i found something that works and i usually don't leave reviews but i felt i had to share for anyone out there with tight hip flexors. ENJOY.
These bands are great for working out indoors. It is a great alternative to free weights such as barbells and dumbbells without the heavy stress on your joints. Studies has shown that using tension bands such as these are more healthier for your muscles and bones than traditional weights. Personally I use these bands mainly for squats and curls. My back pain from lifting has definitely improved ever since I made the switch.
I was hoping to ease my back pain, strengthen my arms as well as back and abs, stall my late-onset scoliosis, and make exercise more fun. This cheap but sturdy gadget hit all the goals. As a bonus it got rid of a pesky shoulder pain on day one. And don't think I'm following instructions (I lost them) or exercising more than five or ten minutes a day (you should probably follow instructions to avoid injury). It's true that the tension may be insufficient for somebody my height (5'3") for some exercises, but you can easily put a twist or two in the cords. I use a cheap thick camping mat that handily rolls into a cylinder to stash the bar (see picture). Instead of sneakers I put on slippers with thick soles. Even for someone as lazy as I am this provides a very easy and fun routine with instant gratification. Boring Pilates moves are now both easier to endure and more effective. Imagine what you can do if you bother to read the instructions and watch the videos!
This was my first time trying this kind of bar and I was impressed. It seemed silly at first but with the instructions I got a couple of examples of what to do with it. I used it to help me stretching and leg lifts. It came separate so you need to attach the bar together. It’s very sturdy and the elastics Are good quality!
it is actually very durable especially for the stated prices. Im even able to do shoulder press intensity workouts with these which goes to show how extensive of an extension these bands can handle. Highly recommend getting these if you are stuck at home and on a budget!
I purchased this since gyms are closed now and I need a good workout for my whole body. This is a good light workout. I use it for upper body and lower body. There is some resistance but not for someone like a body builder. It still gives you a nice workout that works out different muscle groups.
I ordered this because all gyms are closed lol, I needed something to help me exercise in my house in a small area, and this tool is great, I followed the excesses on the manual and it gives a great workout.
Excellent product. I have ordered one for myself and subsequently three more for friends. The DVD is easy to follow along with. You can set your own pace and do one, two, three, or four of the sessions The results are very satisfying. I can wear pencil skirts again, and I feel much more strong and stable overall. Great confidence booster that makes you carry yourself proudly. I alternate this with light weight lifting. A great addition to any one's exercise routine.
I bought this to add to my workouts. Boy the cords are strong and gives you a good workout. I think I am a weakling. I am going slow due to a knee injury. But I am glad I bought this. I have been looking at similar items, but this one stuck out. good pricing! Over all I am happy I got it over three months of thinking should I get it....thanks
I love this thing. I'm 42, out of shape, and in the last 2 years, I had 4 surgeries on my cervical, lumbar and sacral spine to straighten it from 50 degrees to less than 10 degrees. The last 2 surgeries (lumbar and sacral) were 7 mos ago. This keeps me from ever again doing hard-core cardio or weights (I never enjoyed that anyway). My spine is mostly titanium and it doesn't really bend or lift like a normal body. Throughout my physical therapy, my PT subtly introduced me to Pilates, eventually putting me on the reformer. This little bar/band setup wonderfully replicates most of the things I did in PT, from the stretches to the mat work to the reformer. I love it. I've always hated yoga, but this is a great way to do pilates in my own home, taking up very little space.
It's just like the picture. I'll leave more comments when I try
