Default Power Balance Bands

Has anyone tried out these bands and do they really work?

I had to google this to see what it was............

You cannot be serious man. Why would you even consider buying something like this? I thought that people were stupid enough to be going out and buying "natural male enhancement products" but damn this is almost unbelieveable. It's actually disturbing to me that I live in a world with people that are gullible and stupid enough to buy such a thing.

I have a friend that swears by them and noticed Antonio Margarito wearing one around his ankle in the latest 24/7 series. Just curious.

Yes I wear one and I feel it works for me. I am lifting 7kgs more then I could 2 months ago which is a mammouth gain for a snatch and a push press.

This link offers some analysis.. I call bullshit.

Brown Bomber, what weight program are you using and how long have you been using it?

A guy did the demonstration on me and it worked and I'm an incredibly sceptacle person. What is the science behind them. There has to be more to it.

ALOT of people believe in them though.

It's sceptical. There is no science, it's a placebo effect. Save your money and put a lucky cornflake in your sock or something.

Exactly what I was going to say. A placebo can be a very powerful thing.

You guys honestly believe wearing a band around your wrist is going to make you stronger, faster and increase flexibility? Come on.

That's a completely different word mate, as in 'hey that was an amazing spectacle'. I'm pretty sure the word you were looking for was sceptical. As in a sceptic, reluctant to believe in something without proof
