As a personal trainer, it's crucial for me to have a reliable set of the best resistance bands I can chuck into my gym bag. One brand I can't get enough of is the Whatafit resistance band set — and these bands are currently on sale during Prime Day.
When using bands for myself or with clients, I always look for enough challenging resistance and durability so that I'm not constantly restocking my gym kit. And these bands tick the boxes on both. There are five bands included, along with a super handy door anchor, two handles and anke straps and a carry bag.
What more do you need? If you're looking for an on-the-go workout without lugging weights around, these exercise bands are a saviour, and they're currently on sale ahead of Amazon's October Prime Day sales event, discounted by 50% in this Prime Day sale!
Whatafit resistance bands offer convenience and value without breaking the bank, which is crucial these days. What I love about these bands is that you can stack them for 150lbs of challenging resistance, allowing you to work your upper and lower body and core muscles hard.
I appreciate that you can clip the handles into the bands (which range from 10-50lbs in resistance) and hook them around a squat rack or lamppost to perform exercises like chest flyes, curls and kickbacks. The ankle straps can also be clipped in and looped around in the same way, which is perfect when performing exercises like single-leg abductions and crab walks.
I use the door jamb for pulling movements like upright rows as the bands can be positioned high to low or low to high for variations on pulls. You can also mimic a cable machine for side-to-side or twisting core movements like the woodchop or Pallof presses.
We've put together some of our top resistance bands legs workouts if you'd like to know how to integrate the Whatafit resistance bands into your workout. But hurry, we can't guarantee this deal will last during the best Prime Day deals.
