With my first fights coming up soon, I needed every edge I could get with propelling my training back to high performance level.
I’ve never used any type of body worn equipment as training aides, but decided to give these power bands a try, and after researching the various options available on the market, I ordered a set from INNSTAR.
They arrived in the mail 2 days ago. I’ve only tried them out twice so far, first time at home to see how they are and the second time in my Tae Kwon Do training session with my coach yesterday (which is the attached video).
My thoughts so far:
On the negative:
1. While putting the set on at home to try it out, the plastic clip that the foot strap weaves through on one of the ankle braces snapped off. While putting the set on at my training session the next day, the same plastic clip on the other brace snapped off.
These clips need to be metal not plastic.
2. The foot straps tend to slip off the foot during training. Maybe the foot strap should be designed as more of a foot harness/sock.
On the positive:
These things are AWESOME! One of the best workouts I’ve ever had. In one hour and half long session I can feel and see my speed and strength increasing.
This product is a great way to quickly develop various attributes for all athletic activities including speed, strength, balance, agility, muscular and cardiovascular conditioning.
I highly recommend the INNSTAR MMA power bands!
