This set came in the mail about 2 hours ago. I put together the pull up bar (that was missing screws) and pulled out the bands. I did my first day of p90x and these made it anything but a pleasurable experience. On my first few pull ups on the bar, it began to bend (i'm only 160 pounds) and wouldn't stay in place without making and awful creaking noise. I decided to use it for the rest of the workout to see if it improved. Then, the black band, which seemed to have a resistance that would be used by a newborn infant, snapped. I had no choice but to step down to the blue band which snapped after a few reps as well.
Now I have to disassemble the pull up bar and send this entire kit back. Learn from my mistake and pay the extra money to get a name-brand kit, it may actually give you a workout.
