Product Description


Why SPRI Xertube?

The workout tool you can use anywhere, anytime! The original SPRI Xertube is created using a "dipped process" rather than the more common and inexpensive "extruded process" - making it one of the most durable and reliable tubes on the market! In fact, SPRI tubing is the professional’s choice and is preferred by instructors, clubs, and health club members. The handle plug, protective sleeve and grommet reinforcement features also contribute to making SPRI the tubing product that is tough and reliable enough for many of the US military training kits. All SPRI rubber resistance products are made using Tuff Tube, a SPRI exclusive. This heavy-duty, high quality material has greater resistance to abrasion and tears to stand up to the rigorous demands of professional use. Laboratory tests have demonstrated the high quality and superior physical properties of SPRI tubing. Perfect for use in strength-conditioning, Pilates, physical rehabilitation as well as today’s hottest workouts including: CrossFit, P90X, P90X2, Slimin6, Insanity, Les Mills, TurboJam, Jillian Michael’s Body Revolution and many others.

Until the early 1980s, rubber resistance products were mainly used for physical rehabilitation purposes. Then SPRI introduced the SPRI Xertube with looped tubing handles for upper-body use and SPRI Xercise Bands for lower-body use. These products allowed instructors to easily and cost-effectively lead large groups in resistance training for health, fitness, and performance applications. The demand for rubber resistance products — and the ever-expanding training needs of instructors — quickly grew in the ’90s. The industry continued to push for more advanced products. SPRI started producing “dipped” tubing, the purest and most resilient form of rubber tubing available (compared to weaker “extruded” tubing). SPRI also added more specialized features to new and existing products. For instance, hard and foam covered handles were added to the Xertube, cuffs were added to increase comfort and keep the Xercuff in place during use, and rings of tubing were made to withstand higher resistance demands. Today, all SPRI rubber resistance products are still put through the most rigorous controlled testing available, including extensive trials in the field. The entire SPRI team, including the advisory committee and instructors, is constantly out there, visiting firsthand with those who use the products the most and staying ahead of the trends in the industry. This allows SPRI to actively explore new ways to continue offering the best, most cutting edge rubber resistance products and applications on the market.

Style Name: Purple - Very Heavy
I wanted to write this review to help others know more about this product because when I was looking around I was kind of in the dark. I ordered 3: the purple extra heavy, blue heavy, and red medium. I've worked out a lot off and on in the past with actual weights, and I'm always moving around, so this was just what I was looking for. Of course, how tall you are will make a difference, as taller people will have more tension in the bands when they are being stretched (if you're standing, of course, which is a lot of exercises). I'm 5'10", and unfortuantely my purpose in working out is to build muscle, as I'm kind of on the skinny side. The purple band isn't for "extremely fit" people, but it does offer a good amount of resistance. Here's a general guideline of what I found, based on my previous experience with weights:

If I double the purple band (grab both handles at once) and do one arm rows on a chair, depending on where you step on it, you can get a good 40-50 lbs resistance.
If you have one foot on the blue heavy band standing up, and doing curls, it's about 15-20 lbs each hand.
If you step on the red medium tube about 6-8 inches from the handle and do one arm extensions over your head, it's about 15 lbs

Again, these bands are very variable. You can increase the amount of tension by stepping closer to the handles, and by holding two bands at once, holding both handles at once, etc.

I would even recommend the green I think or the smaller ones for exercises such as lateral raises and for the rotator cuff, as stepping with one foot on the red tube while standing up, and raising both shoulders outwards provides a good 10-15 lbs.

Style Name: Red - Medium Verified Purchase
This product is amazing. I recently did 5 weeks of bootcamp and we used these resistance tubes every time for biceps, chest, back and shoulders. Its amazing how effective these are and all the time you are just using your body weight. You can make it as easy or as difficult as you want. I had to get them. The green one was a little too light for me and the blue one is a little too tight for a beginner woman. Best part is you can take this lightweight exercise gear anywhere you want and have a good muscle toning workout. Think you can google up the different exercises you can do with these. Plus for the price, it is so cheap, you dont even need to think twice.

SPRI ES501R Xertube Resistance Band with Door Attachment and Exercise Charts (Red, Medium)SPRI ES502R Xertube Resistance Band with Door Attachment and Exercise Charts (Blue, Heavy)SPRI ES503R Xertube Resistance Band with Door Attachment and Exercise Charts (Purple, Very Heavy)

Although I haven't found much wrong with the band itself (beside the fact that the resistance is lighter than I had expected), the term "door attachment" is somewhat misleading. What you're given is a strap; on one side, there is a loop to pull the band through, and one the other, is what I can only really describe as a small nub.

It makes sense that for such a low price, one shouldn't expect something that actually firmly attaches to the door, so I do not fault them for what it is, but, a word of caution: absolutely make sure that the door closes completely, and cannot be pulled open without twisting the handle.

I used my band probably ten times, and when I decided that I needed to move further back to create more resistance while doing pull-up simulation exercises (lateral pull-downs), I was shocked to watch the door open and see the band and door attachment flying toward me.

Yes, the door attachment hit me right below my neck AND square in the kisser; the band hit me in the chest. After crying like a little girl and icing my swollen lips and the definite outline of the band on my chest, I realized it wasn't that bad (I was mostly shocked), but it really could have been, had it hit me in the eye, etc.

I'm sure I sound like an idiot, but heed my warning. I thought my door was securely closed, but boy did I learn the hard way.

Style Name: Purple - Very Heavy Verified Purchase
I got this to replace my wife's p90X blue band I had poached for my own use and was getting frayed and scary. I pulled this new band out, stepped on it, and gave it a solid pull. I hear a "snap" and my foot explodes in pain. The black rubber widened bit had squeezed right through the silver metal grommet and snapped down into my foot. It hurt like hell but amazingly didn't cause any real damage. Luckily, it was my foot, not my face. Suffice it to say it was both very surprising and unpleasant, and has added the fear of band-snappage to my workouts. Why did it happen? The rubber widened bit (the thing in charge of keeping the handle attached to the band)is quite compressible, even between my fingers. Getting it to squeeze through the grommet is only a matter of pulling hard enough to stretch out the rubber bit enough to get through. A proper design would be an anchor (to the handle) that is stronger than the band itself- ie, the band will snap before the handle attachment fails. This is how most products are designed, to make sure that there is no weak link that could fail before the rest of the product. I'd like to think I'm in shape, but I was certainly in zero danger of snapping the band itself when the attachment failed. Contrast this unpleasant experience with the p90x band (the irrationally expensive B-LINES series). I honked the heck out of these on all kinds of nasty surfaces including concrete, and eventually one of the handles started to break apart and the band itself got frayed. Notably, the anchor piece (inserted into the band) is noncompressible hard plastic. I'll be ponying up the ransom for a new B-LINES band, but I'm still a little jittery around bands in general after this incident. I suppose the SPRI's would be fine if you don't plan to pull hard on them...Read more ›
