AbX, Speed Rope and Cables from HumanX by Harbinger
I recently had the opportunity to try out some new HumanX gear – a new brand by Harbinger. I’ve written about home gym equipment before here on Fit & Awesome and I’m always keeping a lookout for new gear that comes to the market. I was initially drawn to try the HumanX products is they are made by Harbinger. Because Harbinger is such a trusted brand in the fitness space, I had immediate confidence in HumanX products.
HumanX products were designed specifically for high intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts. This is a lot like crossfit so I suspect their target market will be crossfit enthusiasts who are looking to build out a collection of home workout equipment. Or people like myself who believe in the crossfit workout principles but don’t belong to a crossfit gym and practice crossfit style workouts at home or on their own. I received the following three products by Human X for review:
Here’s what I thought of the HumanX Gear I received:
This is pretty similar to the AbMat (which I also own). It is made for building up your ab and core strength and in my opinion makes doing sit ups a whole lot easier because you are making sure your form is good and your body is supported properly by using a product like this while doing ab exercises.
I opted for the 20 lb cables (the blue band). It ended up being a good choice. The resistance comes at a couple different levels so there should be something for everyone. It’s even got a little attachment that you can hang to the door which I found to come in handy for squat rows. I also like the handles because they aren’t bulky like some other resistance band products I have used in the past.
X4 Speed Rope:
This speed rope got me super excited when I saw it in the packaging. I had to be very careful when opening it because I didn’t want to cut the rope itself! Eeee! This speed rope is really well made and I loved the handles. Unfortunately the 10 ft size is too long for me. I wish it came in a smaller size or could be adjustable in some way. Then I’d be super stoked about it. I’m 5’8” and tend to like a shorter jump rope.
Overall I was pretty impressed with the quality of the HumanX Gear I received. It’s also priced competitively with similar products I’ve seen on the market. I am definitely excited to add the AbX, FlexCables, and Speed Rope into my home gym gear collection and have my eye on trying out their Balance Disc next.
I am also excited to announce the opportunity for my readers to win a chance at receiving the same gear pack that I received in this review. Enter for a chance to win a sweet pack of HumanX Gear including the AbX, FlexFast Cables (in whichever resistance level you choose), and the X4 Speed Rope. You can enter below. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

I LOVE gear that makes working out at home possible! As a mom with three toddlers, home workouts are the kind I tend to lean towards!

I’d really like all the gear to use at home and I’d take the jump rope to the gym and use it before or after a run.
Jeremy Pepper says
I don’t skip-rope well. So I’d give that away.

So awesome! I have been wanting to start jump roping again. I really want to get back into shape. I just ordered p90x3 to get me going but I find they never offer me enough cardio. So this would be awesome to use with it
So far I’ve got my health right with going paleo at the beginning of the year, I started the gym but it’s been a huge expense and I need to let go, this win would allow me to keep up my working out at home.
That’s great. Congrats on going paleo. How do you like it so far? Good luck to you!

Alona Y says
I’m pretty much confined to home for workouts right now, would love some gear that’s easy to use in the house.
Good luck! What other types of home workouts do you do?
Coleman Myron says
The AbX mat captures my attention the most. The design of it from the picture looks as if it supports the lower back for when doing floor crunches and other exercises. As my son has been taking my jump rope lately, another one would be a welcomed addition. As to the bands, these ones impress me. Based on your review, the bands sound as if they would provide a solid workout.
Yes, the bands are my favorite of all three pieces of gear. Have you ever used a mat like this for your abs before? It really helps support your lower back and give you proper form. Best of luck to you!
Coleman Myron says
Never have used a mat like this one before. I typically roll up an old towel and place it under the small of my back when doing sit ups or some of the other exercises like the cycling….
I love resistance bands and these look like a step up from them! They would really improve my workout!
Julia Tock says
This is an awesome collection of gear. I’d love to win to have a core exercise at home that gives me no excuse 🙂 And the cables would be great for stretching my hips!
