I purchased the gorilla bow a few of months ago. I waited to write a review because I wanted to make sure I thoroughly tested it out before giving my honest opinion.
First and foremost, for those skeptical about resistance bands being able to build muscle mass — let your skepticism end here. I’ve only been using the gorilla Bow and resistance bands (no weights whatsoever) for the past few months. Needless to say, I’ve gained noticeable muscle mass.
Now on to the review.
I love the gorilla bow. With it, you can do most of the important weight lifts that you would perform in the gym. From preacher curls, to tricep push downs, to squats… you can do it all. The gorilla bow eliminates the hassle of having to drive to a gym, pay a monthly or yearly membership fee, etc.
And yes, the bands offer plenty of resistance. So whether your fitness is at a beginner level or advanced, the gorilla bow can and will challenge you.
Another thing I like is that you can use the resistance bands by themselves to do single arm bicep curls, tricep extensions and much more.
So here’s a quick breakdown of the pros and cons.
– Eliminates the need for a gym (convenience)
-The price is amazing in my opinion (there are other products that cost much more, but offer the same thing or less).
-Workouts are fun and challenging
-You CAN gain muscle mass with this easily (as well as tone up, lose weight, etc — whatever your fitness goal is the gorilla bow will help you achieve it)
-It’s easy to use
-There’s only one con that I can think of. The bar is somewhat long (which is amazing for doing squats, preacher curls and other workouts). The only downfall to the length is that you can’t really take it with you on a plane trip. You can take it with you to the beach, park, etc easily. But if you’re traveling by plane, it’s pretty much a no-go.
HOWEVER, as I stated before, the bands that it comes with can be used by themselves to do a variety of effective workouts. So if you do travel somewhere, you can just bring the bands and workout out with those alone.
Other than that, the product is amazing. I personally purchased the heavy resistance bands set as well to further challenge myself. I love them.
If you’re thinking of purchasing the gorilla bow, I highly recommend you do so. You won’t regret it!
