Using your Resistance Bands
Resistance bands are excellent tools for getting in shape, but as with any exercise tool, proper care is needed to ensure safe use. All resistance bands will wear down over time, and you should inspect your bands prior to every use. Here are a few pointers for getting the most out of your purchase.
Always Inspect your Bands
Before each use, check the band, connectors, and ends. If your band shows any signs of wear, you should not use them and they should be discarded.
Anchor them Correctly
Our included Door Anchor should be used any time you wish to connect your band to an anchor point. Wrapping your band around or through a bar, hinge, chair, metal ring, or other hard surface will accelerate wear.
Do Not Overstretch
All of our resistance bands are designed with a specific maximum weight in mind. Bands should NEVER be stretched beyond 200% of their resting length, or you risk breakage and possible injury.
You should consult your physician or other health care practitioner before starting any exercise program. This is particularly true if you (or your family) have a history of high blood pressure or heart disease, or if you have ever experienced discomfort in your chest while exercising or have experienced chest pain in the past month when not engaged in physical activity. Do not begin any exercise program without consulting your doctor if you smoke, have high cholesterol, are obese, or have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by a change in physical activity. Do not start any fitness program if your physician or health care provider advises against it. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.
