Editor's Notes

October 08, 2019:

The multifunctional nature of mobility bands means that customers looking to buy a set may have widely varied needs. They're often used for rehabilitating an injury, enhancing flexibility, activating and fortifying one's core, providing aid during CrossFit exercises, strengthening stabilizer muscles (especially in the elderly), and improving agility. There are plenty of other common applications, too. Therefore, the particular bands you opt for should reflect your individual goals.

Those looking to rehabilitate an injury will find solace in sets like the Synergee Mini (#7), which offers strong elasticity with low-grade resistance that'll help you work through kinks, knots, and tense spots with patience.

Powerlifters and others hoping to promote quicker recovery after a workout should look to the Viking Strong Floss (#6), which provides muscular compression with the intention of stimulating bloodflow to the area(s).

Athletes hoping to enhance their agility might check out Kbands Training (#9), which can be clipped into a loop that you fit around your hips during agility exercises for a bit of added resistance. This, in time, strengthens the hip flexors and the core, theoretically improving your balance, explosiveness, and speed.

Those interested in the use of mobility bands for CrossFit and general strength and core work have numerous options. In descending order, we recommend Starwood Sports SS1013 (#10), Garage Fit Assist (#5), 4Kor Warrior Pull Up Assist (#4), and Serious Steel (#2).

The standalone EliteFTS Pro Mini (#3) and TheraBand CLX (#1) are fantastic all-around choices, well-suited for a wide array of applications. They're expensive (especially the latter one), but they're touted by famous athletes and professional physical therapists alike for good reason.

Finally, it's worth nothing that mobility bands also make it much easier to stay toned and flexible while you're traveling. They'll easily fit in your travel luggage, and because they're so versatile, you can find creative ways to use them wherever you end up. While the workout will lack the conveniences offered by your gym back home, early morning workouts on the beach with a set of bands as your companion doesn't sound so bad.

Special Honors

Many professional bodybuilders and athletes use them in their training regimens, and if you can afford it, you might want to, also. Still, some argue that other competitors offer products of nearly the same quality for much a much more reasonable cost. Rogue's mobility bands range in size and resistance level, and can be purchased as single bands or in bundled packages.
