Beauty But Beast Product Review

As a personal trainer and avid fitness enthusiast I go through Mini loop bands like crazy. Sometimes the bands lose their stretch after a few uses, they snap from over use, etc.  So recently I found these bands and they caught my attention  Not only because they’re pink and pink is my favorite color, but because they carry the breast cancer symbol.

Being curious, I wandered if it was just for show, or if they actually donate a percentage of proceeds to the cause.  They actually do!  10% of proceeds are donated to the breast cancer  foundation.

So not only are the beauty but beast bands a woman owned company, not only are the bands pink, not only are they very durable, but they support a beautiful cause!

5 Bizarre Sounding Fitness Facts That Are Actually True

  1. Want to fit into a smaller pant size? Lift heavier weight.  If you are overweight, shift your focus to gaining muscle and losing fat by spending more time with dumbbells and barbless and a little less time on the elliptical.  Muscle takes up less space than fat, but is more dense than fat so weight loss may not always reflect on the scale, but yes on the pant sizes!
  2. Want to lose weight? Eat More:  Consuming 1200 calories in donuts and empty calories will yield different results compared to 1400 calories rich in whole food, fruits, and vegetables.  (hint: you will lose more consuming 1400 calories in whole foods)
  3. Want to lose the bloat?  Drink more water!  You’d think that more water would mean more water weight.  But not always!  Water can stimulate the release of excess water retention and can also help alleviate any bloating by helping your body actually use the restroom (water stimulates bowel movement).
  4. Exercise if you are tired:  If you are exhausted it may be a good idea to bring down intensity, but it is still important as exercise energizes.
  5. Not drinking diet soda will help you lose weight:  Research has actually shown that individuals who consume diet soda end up eating more calories daily!  Swap your diet sodas, regular sodas, and sugar filled juices for water

Resistance Band Training

Resistance bands are one of the oldest exercising tools used in both fitness and rehab that recently have also been gaining more and more popularity.

Similarly to their free weight counterparts (i.e. Dumbbells & Barbells) resistance bands provide some degree of resistance, they allow for free range of motion, and variable movement speed. Also like free weights, they provide progressive resistance (meaning resistance can be added).

Unlike free weights, resistance bands do not rely on gravity to provide resistance, they provide continuous tension, and it also become more difficult to cheat the exercises with resistance bands as momentum can to always be used to your advantage.  Another great benefit to using resistance bands is that they provide linear variable resistance meaning that as the range of motion on the bands increases, so does the level of resistance.

Aside from the aforementioned resistance bands are great because they are

  1. Cost Effective
  2. provide great total body workouts
  3. Travel Friendly
  4. Easy Storage
  5. Provide variable training
  6. No training partners needed (i.e. spotters)
  7. Can be combined with other equipment during the workout (i.e. Dumbbells and barbells for added resistance.

My favorite resistance bands on the market right now are the ones sold by bforebands because their bands are incredibly variable.  you can interchange the bands to be attached to any anchors, the doors, ankle wraps, and regular handles.  They also have lateral bands which are great for resistance leg and glute exercises!
