Get yourself into shape, without having to leave your home!
Elastic bands have been used in sport medicine, physiotherapy and rehabilitation training for more than 20 years. Today, these colourful tubes are considered as the more effective alternative to free weights. Resistance is exceptionally important for optimal muscle growth because it is much more effective to keep the maximum tension for the maximum possible time than lifting a constant weight (e.g. dumbbells) over the entire motion sequence.
The Athleum Sports 16 Piece Resistance Band Kit is the perfect tool to allow you to experience this resistance training for all your muscle groups from the ease of your own home, on the road or at the gym.

Complete Exercise Guide
We have included an exercise guide to give you an overview of the countless training possibilities of your resistance bands; just an idea of how varied the full-body workouts can target different muscle groups.
Variety of resistance levels
The 5 colorful, 125cm long tubes made of 100% two-layer natural latex of different thicknesses allow you up to 64 resistance levels as these tubes can be combined to increase the load even more.
How do the loop bands work?
Each band is the same length but varies in thickness, which determines the resistance. Purple is the easiest; black is the hardest.
• Purple (X-Light) 4.5kg tensile value (thickness is 0.30 mm)
• Green (Light) 6.8kg tensile value (thickness is 0.50 mm)
• Blue (Medium) 9.0kg tensile value (thickness is 0.70 mm)
• Red (Heavy) 13.6kg tensile value (thickness is 0.90 mm)
• Black (X-Heavy) 18.2kg tensile value (thickness is 1.2 mm)
Will the bands break?
No, they won’t. Made from natural latex, these exercise bands feel soft and smooth, and are tested to be snap- stretch- and sweat-resistant, making them a good, reliable product to add to your fitness regime.
Ok so it’s a personal home gym, but what else can it do?
Used in rehabilitation post-injury or post-surgery, in Pilates, and for increasing flexibility and/or mobility.
They’re an excellent method of resistance training for the development of specific muscles and tendons.
Resistance training not only has beneficial effects on reducing body fat but also increases muscle size and strength.
Research shows that engaging in elastic band resistance training improves balance, gait function and flexibility, and may induce greater neuromuscular fatigue than exercises with isometric contractions.
