Manufactured in the USA from USA-sourced materials. Why is The Band Beast your best choice for resistance band training? A resistance band training system must support at least the following. The ability to provide resistance across a wide vertical range, such as for single arm shrugs where the maximum resistance is at thigh level, and for overhead presses where the resistance is overhead. The ability to adjust to different users. The ability to provide variation in resistance such as created by different routing options for the bands. The ability to work with traditional barbells (such as is pictured) and a variety of bars and handles. The ability to simultaneously use multiple bands on different attachment points.
The Band Beast provides all of these to a degree unlike any other training accessory. The major problem when training with resistance bands is that the resistance is often too little or too great at the beginning or end of the range of motion.
Achieving a variety of angles can also be a challenge. The Band Beast addresses both of these by allowing numerous attachment points and band routings to enable you to customize the resistance your bands provide. How will The Band Beast take your strength training to a new level? In addition to supporting typical floor-based anchor points for resistance bands, The Band Beast enables advanced movements and numerous adjustment options to give the best range of band-based strength training available, as verified by user reviews.

Planks are the ultimate for abdominal development (in addition to minimizing the spine damage that sit-ups and crunches can cause), but piling weights on your back and trying to keep them from falling off is totally uncivilized. Using The Band Beast to apply weight via resistance bands is comfortable, easy for one person to adjust to your level of strength, and will let you truly realize the potential of weighted planks. They're our new favorite here at Band Beast World Headquarters and one workout using them will quickly show you their potential, not to mention they make plank workouts much shorter. Even devoted users of free-weights and/or body-weight training may find this movement alone justifies adding resistance bands to their training arsenal. And, of course, added resistance can make push-ups more effective too.Doing deadlifts with a loaded bar and adding resistance above the knee (for example) is a great way to improve the efficiency of your workouts by combining rack-pulls and full-range deadlifts, something that is awkward or impossible with other resistance band products. Have a Trap (Hex) Bar? The Band Beast is the perfect size to fit between the plates and add resistance to the upper (strong) range. If you've tried single-arm shrugs with a heavy dumbbell you know they are one of the best ways to build trapezius strength. The Band Beast lets you do these with resistance bands using a variety of attachment points to position the bands for your strength level and height. You can use bands alone or attach them to a dumbbell or handle of your choosing. These are rarely used by most people but can be a great strength-builder. The Band Beast lets you adjust your bands to increase tension such that you can have an isometric portion of each repetition before you reach lock-out.
For example, adding an isometric push to Front-squats by adjusting the bands to limit your range of motion to about the ¾ point is a great variation to stimulate leg and hip development. Great for leg/glute development using resistance bands attached to various points on The Band Beast to vary the resistance as you would using dumbbells. Simply place your preferred step on the Band Beast and attach resistance bands. Unlike dumbbells however, using bands for this movement provides greater resistance as you move into a stronger range of motion for better upper range leg development.
Split-squats are a great option as well. Do Trap-bar (Hex-bar) deadlifts without the Trap-bar using bands. The Design of the Band Beast lets you do the deadlift motion with a mid-body hand grip.
Your discs will thank you and you will get the combination squat and deadlift muscle activation that Trap-bar deadlifts are known for. In short, it allows you to simulate more exercises typically requiring commercial gym equipment than any other resistance band accessory. What do our users say?
