Whats the deal with these black bracelets?

So I know this has to be a scam, but I can't find any legitimate criticism on how these black energy armor wristbands work.
I'd post the link, but I don't want to perpetuate the hoax. Long story short its a black rubber wristband that gives you strength
They show you strength tests (like hold one leg up, and one arm out and i'll push your arm down and you fall, now do the same thing but hold this bracelet and I can't push your arm down without a lot of struggle)
I tried the tests, and the band seemed to work. I tried the same tests while holding a similar wrist band (but non energy armor) but it didn't work. My only guess is maybe the person administering the strength test believes in the bracelet so they subconsciously shift their strength. Kinda like a Ouiji board maybe?
