Gorilla Strength Combat Gear
PRODUCT REVIEW "BEAST KIT"
by Blog Author MAXIMUS AURELIUS
I recently tested the Beast kit by Gorilla Strength Gear,
because it was simply the biggest bang for the buck. I needed the
Most resistance available, The Beast Kit offers a Whopping
716 lbs of total resistance. This really piqued my interest at first.
2nd thing I noticed was its rugged construction. It looked tough
enough to handle my intense training routines. I have been involved
in Wrestling, Football, Baseball, Soccer, Tae Kwon Do, BJJ,
Weight Training, Strength Training etc since I was in
Kindergarten. I have used mainly Free weights with a rack,
dumbells, barbells, Commercial Gym Equipment, Hammer Strength
machines, Body weight training in the Military, Home Gyms i.e.
Bowflex, TRX Suspension body weight system, Pull up bars, Dip
bars, Explosive Fitness (Static Contraction Machine) . Over 3
decades as an "Iron Game" student.
I am Certified Fitness Trainer with 2 certifications , and worked as
a trainer in Major Commercial Gym.
I feel this qualifies me to give an adequate review of any kind of
strength training or workout device.
There are SO many Terrible , even Laughable fitness products out
there on infomercials!!! It gets worse every year!
My first concern with strength training with resistance bands was
" Can I get a Gym quality Workout?"
I have never used resistance bands before, and was initially
interested because they fit into my budget!
I have been working out with them for about 2 years now, putting
them through every conceivable test,
position, durability, feel, and effectiveness. I am very impressed
with this system or I wouldnt be featuring
them on my site. I can say that they deliver a High Quality Workout
The bands get stronger the further they are stretched . They can be used in conjunction with dumbells to increase the resistance to greater angles, although that type of movement is rather cumbersome.
The reason I say High Quality is because of the very nature of the
bands during use they allow you to use
Explosive Force,which activates more explosive muscle fibers. There is no
Momentum, or Gravity that you get with free
weight movements, which can decrease their effectiveness. I am
not saying Free weights are bad, they are still
very effective, if you dont have the space and the $$ required for a home
gym with 700lbs of weights, and an extra bedroom or garage.
Then the Gorilla Strength Bands are for you.
My workouts have been extremely productive with these Gorilla
bands.With 716 lbs of total resistance , its more than adequate for
any level of MMA fitness enthusiast, It takes a little creativity to get
them into position for working different muscle groups, I plan on
making some demonstration videos to show their effectiveness, and
versatility. I train using many techniques, drop sets, partial reps,
explosive reps, Static Contraction Reps, Pyramid sets, Upper Body:
Arms,Chest, Back, Legs, Squats, Resisted Punches: Uppercuts,
Hook Punches, Straight Punch, and even Resisted Ground and
Leg Press, Resisted Front Kicks, Side Kicks,
Roundhouse, Muy Thai Knees, Elbows etc. Pretty much every
major Mixed Martial Arts Movement I was easily able to perform
WITH resistance with no problem whatsoever.
The only cons I had with these bands were the handles, they
are relatively small and I have small hands, although I believe a
larger handle is now available. Also when I first got these they stunk like plastic and rubber and I had to let them air out in the back yard for a few days. The overall craftsmanship was ok, I'd say medium duty, some of the stitching is coming loose from heavy use but nothing has broken other than 2 of the handles. For the price they do the job.
Get The Best Self Defense Course Ever
Over time (2 years) with heavy use these handles begin to crack,
but the company offers a replacement for $4.95 each.
You just cant do these types of resisted movements with free
weights. So again the Beast System provided another advantage for
my Strength Training and Martial Arts Movements.
Highly Recommended 716 lbs of resistance "The Beast"
Resistance Band Strength Training System, they
do everything they are advertised to do....
