  1. Strength Band Accident - anchor broke


    So this happened to me this morning.

    If you ever wanted to know what it felt like to get caned, then just have a strength band hit you at 100 mph. That will take your breath away. The pic of my back does not do my welt justice. Now I know why people have their bare back slapped before doing a set. That sh!t will wake your a$$ up!

    So I was doing standing bench press with the anchor in a door. First set and a few reps in, SNAP, SLAP, I hit the floor in a ton of pain. I was only using 30 lb and 19 lb bands but I was really putting a lot of body weight into it. I've replaced a few bands over the years but never an anchor. I wasn't sure whether to start this thread here or in Injury, lol.

    So just an FYI, be careful!

    It just got worn down over time. The edges were definitely frayed but I thought the reinforced stitching was still in tact. Like I said, I was really leaning into the exercise. I'm sure that had a lot to do with it.

  6. Too bad you weren't recording it when it happened.. I could've uploaded it to imgur and made the front page with a gif of it..

  7. email the company or post on their facebook page. At the very least you may get some new free ones

    Thanks for the recommendation. I emailed them and they quickly responded within in couple hours saying they'd sending me TWO new anchors. They advised using two at the same time in case one broke. Pretty good customer service for Bodylastics.
