If you compare alphabands with dumbbells or dumbbells, two differences are noticeable. First, dumbbells are always used to train against gravity, i.e. roughly from bottom to top. Resistance bands also allow horizontal movements, where the resistance arises in the direction of pull or push. Secondly, the resistance of the fitness bands increases in relation to the stretch. This makes the workout especially joint-gentle. For example when bench pressing with fitness bands, the resistance is highest when the arms are completely stretched (lock-out). In the starting position, when the shoulders are in the weakest position, the resistance is also lowest. With the fitness bands you can do a strength training with moves from bottom to top, moves in the horizontal and from top to bottom.
The brand new alphabands are our logical further development of the first generation alphabands. They are also made of polyurethane but are even more compact – making them even easier to transport and combine. We now manufacture each band strength individually and can therefore not only produce rounded edges but also a permanently velvety surface. The new alphabands simply feel good and have now been significantly reduced in terms of initial resistance. At the same time, we have been able to increase the elasticity from 100 to 150% and thus maintain a high maximum performance. Last but not least, we have now coloured our bands differently so that they can be distinguished more easily. Of course, we have only used our well-known discreet colour scheme, so that it does not look like a circus. We now offer the following variants:
Our alphaband Trainer consists of five resistance bands in different strengths, a double handle that you can grip with one or both hands and an anchor sling with integrated door anchor. This complete package allows you the optimal training with resistance bands. With the anchor sling the trainer can be attached to doors, hooks, trees and allows you to use the fitness set sensibly at any place. The individual alphabands are easily connected via the carabiners with the anchor sling as well as the handle and allow not only a strength training in every direction but also a resistance setting from easy to extremely difficult. Simply hook on the desired fitness bands and off you go. The double handle of the alphaband trainer is extra long, so that you can train not only with one hand, but also with both hands at the same time when needed. The aluminium handle is coated with softgrip plastic and has a very good grip. This makes the alphaband Trainer the ultimate mobile strength training device.
Elastic resistance bands are versatile training tools: they offer strength training, support, and mobility training in one.
… on the alphabands. Sure, they might be a little more expensive then ordinary power bands on the market. But the quality and optics are (like with all aerobis products) exceptional. Especially the fast and easy change of different resistance levels in combination with of the grip and carabiner allow a truly “fluid” training experience. Only through the grip handle users can fully develop enough force without having pressure points or friction on the hands. But even without the grip handle the bands are very comfortable. In my courses the bands have received raving praise several times: “How cool is that? I have never seen this before. This way strength training becomes a lot more fun.”
