If you like the look of the excellent Mirafit Resistance Band Set, but don’t fancy spending around £40 on buying two individual high-strength ones, the Myprotein resistance bands two-piece set is an excellent shout, especially for anyone who wants to amp up their lower-body training. Taught and tough, the bands are also great pull-up aids and can help you lock into larger muscle groups like glutes and lower back.
Build muscle and strength with this resistance band full-body workout
There’s absolutely nothing fancy about these bands beyond the fact they’re great quality. There are no instructions, tips or workouts – just a barebones set of two identical bands. Unlike the 11-piece set, though, these two tough cookies won’t be too light for low rep ranges. In fact, if you’re looking for bands to exercise your arms or upper body, these will probably be too high-resistance.

So what are the bands good for? Anyone lucky enough to have a pull-up bar at home, or who wants bands to take to the gym, loop either one or both Myprotein 24-54kg bands through the pull-up bar, and they’ll give you the leg up you need to hit a whole new level of lat and bicep fatigue. Shift focus to your lower body by looping one or both bands around your shoulder on one end, while threading your foot through the other end for some single-leg presses.
With 208cm of material, if you’re using both bands simultaneously for a squat, you’ll need to be pretty tall to create resistance in the full range of motion. That said, you can loop just one band under your feet and over your shoulders to toughen up a single-band squat, and if you find that too easy, switch that to a single-leg lunge for some extra burn.
