Rated 2 out of 5 by Scott poor durability, but great workout tool
The Brazilian Butt Lift video "High and Tight" uses the Strength Band. This tool really enhances the workout by multiple levels. The bands supplied a great workout. The free Strength Band that came with my kit developed rips after the first workout with it and broke during my second workout! This product greatly enhances your workout, but breaks too easily.
In the video, the subjects have placed the band between their shoe soles and the floor. I would never do this again because I feel that stepping on the band causes the rips that makes it tear apart.
You might want to order more than one at a time if they keep breaking so quickly.

I have been working out with the yellow strenght band and when it snapped I continued to work out but I did notice I feel the workout being more intense with the band. I would like it to be in thicker material though, so that it lasts longer. I will definitely recommend using it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sue The bands are ok
I have been doing the Butt Lift for about 30 days now!! I love it. I lost 6 pounds in the first three weeks. I've already lost two inches off my waist too. Leandro is adorable and so encouraging. Anyway, I do the High Tight with these bands too in the color yellow. My bands have been working so far and offering amazing results as I expected. They haven't snapped, but I can see why others may have experienced that. The material of the bands is very thin. Also, what I THINK would make the resistance bands more durable is if the material were a little thicker and if the bands were wider. These bands listed here are 2 inches as well as the bands we receive in the Butt Lift package. I think if Beach body were to sell bands that are about 4 inches wide they would last longer? I think they may hold up better. So far so good with my bands, hopefully they'll last long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fielies LOVE the DVD's
I love the workouts, but my bands snapped during the 3rd week into the program. Now I am trying to do the high and tight with the ankle weights instead... Hope I still get the same results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Love BBL, bands could be better Care of bands
I've had a bit more luck with my bands. I powder my bands prior to each use and my bands have lasted for several months. I think that was recommended in the packet somewhere. Just recently my daughter broke a band so I will try the green level.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GranAstur Poor quality
I use them for asylum. They tore and ripped apart 3 weeks into the program. I was looking to order a new set but after reading all these bad reviews about them I'm not going to. I will look for a better and more durable set elsewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gina Strength Bands
I love the Brazil Butt Lift, especially High and Tight, but the strength bands are very very low quality. Try to do the workout without them and it's not the same. I was only able to complete 4 workouts with them and that included tying knots in them before they fell apart!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ssk525 Love the video - but band was poor quality
The videos are good. Unfortunately, the band broke the very first time I used it and at the beginning of the video. I am not a large woman so the strain on the band was not tremendous. If it was designed to be used during vigerous exercise, it should be able to make it through the warm up. It is of very poor quality to be included with a video that is marketed as a superior product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LisaRNinSD work, but not strong enough
Love love love the brazil butt lift dvds, and especially love the one with the booty bands. Unfortunately, just like most of the other reviews, the band is poor quality. Same exact material as cheap balloons. The band twists on itself, sticks and then is almost impossible to undo. After 3 or 4 times using mine, it ripped. So I've been using ankle weights instead. I am going to find some nice durable ones like they use in the videos.
