If you are in the market for a home gym and are considering checking out some Cando resistance bands reviews, then take a moment to read this entire writeup because it may well save you some big bucks.
It seems that everyone today wants to get leaner, stronger and of course ripped six pack abs. However, there are many different types of exercise products available to us today. In this article, we will explore some of the advantages and disadvantages of the Cando resistance bands, what they come with, and what their competitors offer.
Let’s take a look at what this product offers us.
First, they are available in 7 different colors, each color signifies a certain amount of resistance. Unfortunately, they don’t indicate on their website exactly what each color means in terms of tension levels. This is a serious disadvantage when compared to other fitness tubes and home gyms on the market today because, you never have the ability to determine your true strength in each exercise.
While this product at first glance appears very inexpensive (since you can purchase them for under $20) when you take into consideration that you will have to purchase additional tubing, handles, door anchor, ankle straps etc. the product is not expensive at all. In essence, you have to build your own exercise product. Furthermore, one of the major disadvantages of this particular elastic tubing is that the manufacture does not offer any kind of replacement warranty. You see, after a while all elastic tubes will lose their elasticity just like a rubber band. Therefore, a company that offers a replacement warranty has greater value than one that does not. Later on in this article you read about the top three competitors and what type of warrantee’s they offer.
Now that you have an understanding of what you get when you purchase the Cando bands, let’s explore some of the other manufacturers and what they offer you.
3. P90X bands or B lines resistance bands (as they are also advertised on this name.)
Of all the manufacturers that we have researched these three are considered the best available online today.
Bodylastics bands are priced out from just under $49 and of course depending on how much resistance you need can run you as much as $129.95 for their mega resistance system. Their basic tension XT system starts out at $45.95 and offers approximately 88 lbs. of tension. The system is fine for most people however, they do offer other systems like the Max tension 134 pounds, super strong man 254 pounds, and mega resistance 388 pounds of tension. So whether you’re a beginner or advanced bodybuilder they have a product to fill your needs. Furthermore, one of the best advantages that this product provides is the ability to attach up to 7 tubes to one exercise handle. This allows you to perform more than 140 gym type exercises. All their systems come with a lifetime replacement warranty, so if the tubes should ever bend or break, you can replace them for only a small shipping charge. With their system you also receive a illustrated exercise manual, access to their online video site, and if you decide to purchase it you can get an exercise DVD.
Ripcords exercise bands also offer a replacement warranty, and they have different systems of different tension levels. Unfortunately, you cannot attach multiple bands to one handle. It comes with a money back guarantee, lifetime defects warranty and a workout booklet.
Let’s move on to the P90X resistance bands. Perhaps, you have seen them on the P90 X infomercial and these tubes can be used without purchasing the power 90 extreme DVDs. These tubes are very similar to the Ripcords in that you cannot attach multiple tubes to one handle. They can provide you up to 82 pounds of tension, are priced similarly to the Ripcords and Bodylastics systems however, they do not provide any kind of defects or replacement warranty.
Now that you have read this Cando resistance bands review you have the information you need about the product and their competitors to be able to make effective decision about what type of home gym you should purchase.
