Section II: Kinetic Band Comparison
I did a kinetic bands review of three different types of kinetic bands . I tested probably will be the most purchased speed bands which are Kbandstraining , Myosource , and kinetic bands from Amazon . I wanted to do a leg resistance band comparison and see which ones were the best resistance bands for speed training . I broke it down into what i thought were needed categories , which were , use packaging, price , and overall.
When it comes to use the kinetic bands from Amazon could get the job done but they definitely weren't the best of the bunch. So the Myosource kinetic bands and the Kbandstraining bands were miles ahead of the amazon resistance bands in this area because they don't stay on your legs sometimes . This little thing its it main job , to stay on your legs and provide resistance. So it can get kind of annoying . The other kinetic bands seem to be made of something different , that actually sticks to your legs when not in use and wont slide or pull off leg hair. The ones from amazon are basically the same cable that goes to the front and back of your leg .
The Myosource and Kbandstraining one actually have different cables designed for the front and back of the leg to put more resistance in the places needed . One is shorter for the back and longer for the front . Also if you look at the hooks on the end of the bands on the Amazon bands they actually can unscrew sometimes and have to be screwed back on .
So for the packaging I wanted to go over what came in the package as far a accessories instructions , and extra thing that you might need .
So ill start with the kinetic bands from amazon . They pretty much come with just the stuff to get started . The come the the leg wraps , the leg resistance bands , and the net bag to keep it in .
So for these you have to know what you are doing and how to use them because you don't get any help , when it comes to these .
Next up are the Kbandstraing and Myosource kinetic bands . I put these two together because basically they are exactly the same . The come with cables that are different sizes for the front and the back . Both have high quality net bags to keep the sets in when not in use . They both come with instruction for use and possible different uses , such as speed agility , or cheer leading workouts .
There are a few differences though . The kbandstraining speed bands come with a sheet to go to their website to download free workouts and videos . The kbandstraining brand also give the option the upgrade to stronger cables . The blue ones in the picture do not come with the standard set .
The Myosource kinetic bands came with an extra band to help you stretch and warm up , but i felt like it wouldn't be something that i would get much use out of .
So in the case of packaging it one again in a tie with Myosource and kbandstraining . They are basically the same products .
So now were gonna go over price . So when it comes to this we are going to go with which is just cheapest .
This hands down goes to the Amazon kinetic bands . They are by far the lowest priced but , you also get what you pay for , which means the least amount of support and accessories .
The other two , Myosouce and Kbandstraing are around the same price , but you're paying for workouts , more accessories and higher quality .
So I would say if you have an idea of how you want to train and what you want to train for , then the Amazon ones will get what you need to get done . If you need a little help and guidance as far as workouts and getting started I would say go with one of the other two brands .
Section III: Best Speed Bands
So now I want to give you what would be the best choice if your need is the same a mine which is speed training . For speed training I would have to give it to the Kbandstraining leg resistance bands . Its in front of the Myosurce kinetic bands , but not by far . I had to give it to the kbandstraining because of the workouts and training videos . They also have the ability to expand to stronger bands . For sprinting and speed work they seemed to be the best for my use .
