At home workout equipment is popular right now, so I thought what better time to discuss a few of the workouts that social media has convinced me to try over the years. Starting with the DB Method.
While I was living in Montana, I was short on time to go to the gym. So when I spotted the DB Method advertisement on Facebook, I decided to give it a try. The machine is designed to make body-weight exercises like squats more effective by introducing resistance and correcting form. It’s designed primarily for squats, but there are exercises for cardio, core and arms as well.
Small enough to fit in most apartments, the machine disassembles to store flat. Though, the disassembling and reassembling takes a bit of effort to master.
The DB machine is also designed to reduce strain on your knees and joints. It also made it easier to do squats without the low back pain that sometimes plagues me.
So does it work?
The first few times I used it, I didn’t experience the soreness that functions as proof of efficacy. My form wasn’t quite right, and it took watching the accompanying videos a few times to correct it. Once I had mastered the form, I found the workouts (which run six to 10-minutes) very effective.
Cosmopolitan has a lengthier review with before and after photos. My results weren’t quite as impressive as hers, but they were noticeable. I found the DB Method was an effective, quick workout that helped me trim a few inches from my hips.
Bottom Line: Like all workout equipment, it can’t work if you don’t use it. At $229, it’s not an inexpensive thing. But when you can’t go to the gym, if you’re willing to put in the time, it is a very effective at home workout. I give this Saw It On Social 🍑🍑🍑🍑🍑 out of five emojis.
Like all Saw It On Social reviews, no money or gifts changed hands in exchange for this review. I purchased the DB Method machine myself and used it for a few months before writing this review.
