Common Questions and Answers
- Question : Should I go for the 3” or the 4”?
The 4" is the standard yoga block size. It's also the one that's used in the yoga classes. The 3" version is ideal for the ones with smaller hands and the ones who don't need that extra one-inch lift of 4". But mostly it's the size of your hands and grips that decide which size you should go for.
- Question : Can the block absorb water or is it closed cell?
The material used in this yoga block doesn't absorb water or liquids of any sort. It just simply makes the water slip through the surface. This makes it easier to clean the block, and there's no chance of any remaining odor on the block.
- Question : Can it support both feet on them?
It’s not supposed to support the entire body weight. However, if you don’t weigh that much and want to use the block for a lift, you can get support from it. But put one foot at first and see what happens to the block. If it squishes too much, you shouldn’t pursue doing it.
We've meant to test the REEHUT Yoga Block for quite some time. Finally, we bought the blocks and got around to exercise with it. This is what we've found about the product.
The product arrived very nicely with great wrapping and packaging. We ordered the 2 pcs 9" X 6" X 4". With its price range, it was expected that they would reek of chemicals. They had a chemical overtone when we opened the package, but we got the air out of it, and it was alright thereafter. We were very impressed with its density in the first place. It was neither too hard nor soft.
We're only new to the yoga exercises. We were doing it for therapy for posture aligning. But since our muscles aren't that flexible yet, we couldn't do a lot of exercises that require too much flexing. When we got the REEHUT Yoga Blocks, we could do our exercises with ease. The stretching, especially, has never been easier. Even the chiropractic exercises work well with the blocks. Due to its surface material, it was very easy to clean off anything that might cause slip. However, we don't recommend doing too much heavy exercise on it since it tends to sink in with heavy exercises. Also, check out this great yoga pant review to add it to your exercise prop like us.
2. Ease of use
Its portability adds to its brilliance. We can just simply put it in our gym bags and go out to use them on the gym. The days of using gym blocks are over. Also, the REEHUT Yoga Blocks are supposed to make exercises easier, and they excel at that. You don't have to go through any sort of hassle in using them. Simply put the block under the place of your body that needs support. You'll feel more relaxed, and yet you'll be doing more exercises than before.
The price of such a wonderful thing is really interesting. It costs even less than a budget pillow. A product at this price is always a win.
