DaHeng Portable Exercise Band Set

resistance bands

Combinable Intensity. The bands are color-coded by weight intensity, with a number of combinations that can accommodate a maximum 150 lbs. That means you have a lot of personal control over how intense your workout gets, more than with some other brands.

Low Price Point. The DaHeng Set is a little bit more expensive than the DHSO set, despite the fact that it comes with basically the same equipment. Whether you like the design of the DeHeng bands more than the DHSO bands is up to you, but we personally prefer the DHSO.

Two Ankle Straps Included. Ankle straps allow you to maximize the potential of the bands and do basically any kind of exercise with them. Some packs only come with one, so it’s a huge plus that the DaHeng set comes with two.

Price: $15.99
