Towards the beginning, you may find it frustrating as you try to figure out how to position the bands and yourself in a way that is both comfortable and provides the right amount of resistance. Don’t get frustrated, with experience comes the ease of resistance maneuverability. There are several ways to adjust the resistance in order to meet your personal needs:
Distance from the Anchor Point
As a rule of thumb, the farther you position yourself from the anchor point, the more resistance you will impose on the bands. The closer you position yourself, the less resistance you will impose on the bands.
Interlock at Midpoint
If you find that your post is too thick or high for your intended use, you can easily link two bands together by crossing them at their midpoints, so that you are left with a new anchor point and a lower overall resistance.
Another option to raise the band’s resistance is to reduce the band´s length. Try looping the band around your foot, bar, or post to shorten the length of the band.
If using one band provides you with a comfortable range of motion but is obviously too easy, add another band.
You always have different alternatives to choose from in how you perform each exercise. Grip attachments will change the feel of each lift. Inserting a bar will balance the resistance on both hands and looping the band around the bar will increase the resistance of the lift. Handgrips and ankle straps will alleviate tension on your hands and feet while lengthening your distance from the anchor point, effectively lowering the overall resistance. The door strap can be used to perform virtually any workout with most doors.
- Start with a low resistance to acquaint yourself with the exercise and allow for adequate adaptation.
- Begin each set with the bands lightly stretched, providing minimal resistance. In order to maintain constant resistance for an optimal workout, do not release any repetition past this point of minimal resistance until your set is complete.
- Don’t completely lock out your joints to prevent unnecessary strain or pressure.
- Try to keep your body still with your abdominal muscles and restrict all movement to the target muscle group during an exercise.
- Keep your wrists straight to avoid placing tension in the wrong areas.
- To verify that your wrists remain straight, you shouldn’t see any wrinkles on your wrists from bending your hand.
- Keep your weight centered over your feet and your head centered over your shoulders. Monitor yourself to verify that you are never leaning too far over your feet.
- Adjusting the anchor point height will shift the resistance.
- Always try to add at least one more repetition (with good form) or a little more resistance to continually challenge yourself. Prove to yourself that you are getting stronger!
- Pay close attention to your tempo to control your workout time and encourage proper form. Your tempo will greatly affect your rep count and your workout intensity.
- If at any point during your workout you begin to feel fatigued, dizzy, or have physical discomfort, you should stop immediately and consult a physician. Individuals
Your satisfaction is so important to us that we decided to put our bands where our mouth is:
If any band breaks within a year, we’ll send you a new one for free. Note: the bands will peel a little with use so don’t worry if one of the strips starts to unravel. The bands are made through a layering process for added durability so the layers may begin to separate over time but should never break.
If you are unhappy with the bands, you have two months to send them back for a refund – no questions asked. Returned packages must be postmarked within 60 days of the confirmed date of delivery and must include the original order number. There is a 15% restocking fee for all returned items that are opened since we can’t resell them.

Please also include a note explaining what action you would like us to take and a proof of purchase (confirmation email is fine).
This depends on several variables:
- How often you use the bands
- how hard you use them
- how far you regularly stretch them
- which size band you are talking about.
Under normal conditions, which we estimate as an hour workout three times a week with medium intensity, the lighter bands (Light, Medium, Heavy) should last around a 1-2 years. Our wider bands (Robust, Power, Strong, Monster) should last at least 2-3 years under the same conditions. With that said we have several demo bands that are over three years old and are still in great shape.

Almost nothing! Just keep them out of direct sunlight for extended periods of time; don’t stretch them more than 2.5 times their original length, and don’t let them come in contact with rough surfaces (i.e. asphalt, sharp posts, children with scissors)
They can safely be stretched up to 2.5 times their original length without causing any harm on the band. Though they will stretch further, we don’t recommend you do this as a safety and durability precaution.
