Every fitness beginner needs a resistance bands set for big gains at a tiny cost

The best cheap piece of fitness gear I've ever bought from Amazon, for myself or someone else, wasn't one of the best fitness trackers. It wasn't a yoga mat, or a set of weights, or even a massive discount on one of the best treadmills or other cardio machines. It cost less than $30 (around £25 in the UK or AU$45 in Australia), it's easy to use, weighs practically nothing, and essentially acted like a home gym for beginners. If you're just starting out on your fitness journey and you're interested in building even a small amount of muscle, the best advice I can give you is to buy a full set of resistance bands or tubes. They're great. Really, really great, and I couldn't recommend them enough. If you were to limit me to only one kind of fitness kit for the rest of my life – apart from ...
