Product Review: Resistance Bands Barbells

As most of you know, on June 10th of this year I fell and broke my Humerus in my right arm in 3 places. While I'm almost 100% better I still can't move my arm behind my back like I used to before the fall. I'm still doing the PT exercises and still trying to get back the strength I once had in my right hand and arm. So when I was given the opportunity to test out this exercise kit at home, I jumped at the chance because I've been using household items such as cans of vegetables as weights and doing stretching exercises without any equipment. 

Using these resistance bands has been interesting and hard at the same time. Hard because I used to be able to pick up a gallon of milk with my right hand and now I just can't do that, but I'm hoping now that I have this exercise set, I'll be able to strengthen my hand and arm up again and be able to get back to normal. 

This kit was really easy to get started with with easy clear instructions and everything is included that you would need to start out. Even for a total beginner, this was easy for me. It comes with a DVD which was really helpful so after watching it, I started with just one arm exercise a day because my arm is still stiff and if I over do it, it hurts a lot. But after 4 days of working my arms, I could tell a slight difference in the amount of weight I can hold with my right arm, and my shoulder seems not as stiff as it was. I plan on working with this for a few weeks and seeing if this will help strengthen my injured arm, but so far so good.
