I’m all about exercise and staying active, cardio and weight resistance, but I also love using resistance bands to help strengthen my ankles. About 6 years ago I sustained a bad injury to my left ankle, resulting in a class 3 sprain. Now, I would have rather my ankle break completely so that it would heal properly, but due to the fact that it did not, my injury is a burden constantly. Having had several physical therapy appointments over the years, resistance bands has become a part of my lifestyle. I have tried several different types and brands and found that the PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands have become a favorite of mine to use.
The PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands ($12.99) is an affordable way to get in your exercises without all the strain of weights. The sets include a total of four bands and one nylon carrying bag. The bands included are:
- 1 Blue “Light” Band
- 1 Red “Medium” Band
- 1 Green “Heavy” Band
- 1 Black “X-Heavy” Band
After injuring my ankle, I have been using resistance bands to strengthen my ankle. While most bands do work well, I like the fact that the PhantomFit bands come in four different strengths, allowing me to start my exercises with a light band and when I’m comfortable, work my way up to the X-Heavy band (black). I also like that my husband and sons can use the bands as well. My husband, who can easily use the Black band, enjoys using the bands to strengthen his shoulder (which he had surgery on about 6 years ago). As a family, we also love using the bands as a form of exercise in place of our weights. Using the bands work well form arm, leg and ankle work outs and I love that they are durable, light weight and portable. If we are traveling, this can easily be tucked into our luggage or overnight bag without taking up any room.
PhantomFit also offers a 100% lifetime no-hassle free replacement guarantee. If it breaks, they will replace it. Overall, I am impressed with these bands and my family and I have enjoyed them over the last month. We incorporate them in our daily work out routines as well as use them to strengthen the parts of our body that need Physical Therapy. This will definitely become a brand we will use moving forward in the future.
