Bodylastics Resistance Bands

You may be asking yourself what is Bodylastics resistance bands? however, everyone is familiar with the Bowflex. After all they spend millions of dollars in television advertising to convince you that you can have a fitness model body.

Check out this review of: Bodylastics Home Gym .

Sadly, many people cannot afford a Bowflex or don’t have a spare room in their home or apartment. Therefore, when I saw that Bodylastics resistance bands was promoting itself as the $50 alternative to Bowflex and other home gyms I decided to investigate.

Afterall, how can a set of resistance bands measure itself to the Bowflex? Well, if you really look at the Bowflex system it is really just a cable machine. Instead of resistance bands it uses power rods. (Which are made of a rubber polymer.) Pretty much the same thing as latex tubing if you think about it.

The question then is… can I do as many exercises with the Bodylastics resistance bands as I can with the Bowflex system?

For example the Bowflex Xtreme SE 2 will allow you to perform 70 muscle building exercises. Price tag — only $1599.00

The Bowflex Ultimate 2, offers over 95 strength building movements. Price tag — only $2499.00.

The Bodylastics resistance bands offers more than 140 muscle building movements. Cost — less than $50.00.

The beautiful part is it doesn’t take up as much area as a Bowflex. You don’t need a lat bar, leg extension attachment, or even a bench. Just grab the door anchor that comes with a set and attach it to your door, a tree or a fence and you are ready to go. Just, by varying your body’s position you will be able to perform lat pull downs, chest presses and other exercises that you would probably need a lat bar or a bench to perform.

Bowflex offers a lifetime warranty on their power rods and so does Bodylastics, so there is not much of a difference there. The Bodylastics resistance bands allow you to perform more than 140 movements and you can attach up to 7 resistance bands to each handle. So in essence what you have is a set of Dumbbells. With the ankle straps you can easily perform all the leg exercises that you could do on a Bowflex. The door anchor allows you to perform the exercises that you would normally need a Lat Bar or a bench to do.

So my opinion the Bodylastics resistance bands are definitely the $50 alternative to Bowflex.
