This band has great resistance. It is so much better than the rubber bands because there is no roll up or pinching. I feel a huge difference when doing my exercises. It not only adds resistance, but it helps you keep the correct form. This isn’t just for legs and glutes, you can workout your arms, shoulders, chest and just about anything. The workout guide is very helpful and has plenty of exercises that are easy and fun. Put this in your suitcase when traveling or your purse to get a few exercises in while sitting at your desk at work.
