LEVEL OF PRACTICE
Unlike dumbbells, elastic bands give you variable, gradual resistance. This lets you work on your strength, speed and power while reducing the stress you place on your joints.

Each colour corresponds to a level of resistance: Green: 15 kg // Yellow: 25 kg // Orange: 35 kg // Red: 45 kg // Black: 60 kg If you use the band for strengthening, start with a lower resistance and then gradually increase it. However, if you are using it to assist you during exercises such as pull-ups, a more resistant Training Band is best for beginners.
Check that it is secured in place so that it doesn't come unhooked as you are exercising (if you are using it to assist you with exercises such as pull-ups for example). Check for wear (breaks or white areas) to avoid your band breaking during an exercise.
