With those, and pushing and crunches, I cover most muscle groups. And since the tool is lightweight, I travel with it. When traveling, keeping healthy is very important, and this helps a lot.

I also noticed that it is, in fact, possible to reach muscle failure with these, if I’m actively fighting against laziness for a week or so. It takes more than an hour to do a good workout, at home or otherwise. But it feels great to reach that point, the exhaustion. I imagine being able to imagine not being able to live without it.
