XrossFit Resistance Bands
Resistance bands are a practical athletic training tool that can be applied to any sport and used to dramatically increase your power and speed in all planes of motion.
My resistance bands are made from pure, liquid, 100% natural latex imported from Malaysia and made using a unique dip method. There are no added plasticizers, coagulants, or fillers to migrate and contaminate the stream or cause hardening.

RED 208cm x 1.3cm x 0.45cm Resistance:15-25lbs (6.8-11.3kg) This light resistance band can be used for a complete range of low- to medium-level resistance exercises. The red bands light weight and low tension makes it ideal for core conditioning, rehabilitation, speed training, jumping, stretching, aerobics, yoga, Pilates and as assistance for body weight exercises. Widely used as aerobic bands, this band is good for those looking for lightweight resistance.
BLACK 208cm x 2.2cm x 0.45cm Resistance:25-50lbs (11.3-22.6kg) This light to medium resistance band can be used for a complete range of low to medium-level resistance exercises. A versatile band widely used for general strength training, Pilates, CrossFit and explosive training. Also useful for squat and pull up assist.
PURPLE 208cm x 3.2cm 0.45cm Resistance:50-75lbs (22.6-34kg) A medium resistance band is excellent when used as lightly assisted pull up bands. A multi-purpose band for many functional training, strengthening and stretching exercise, particularly for larger muscle groups. Also effective when used as plyometric bands and agility training bands.
GREEN 208cm x 4.4cm x 0.45cm Resistance:75-120lbs (34-54.4kg) This versatile medium-heavy resistance band is useful for dynamic workouts with our without weights. A popular band both for pull up training, and for adding resistances to bench press, squats, and Olympic lifts
BLUE 208cm x 6.5cm x 0.45cm Resistance:120-175lbs (54.4-79.3kg) A heavy duty band are often used in conjunction with free weights to offer ascending resistances levels; attach to weight bars, benches or squat racks for added resistance during lifts and explosive exercises. Also useful for training for CrossFit pull-ups.
RESISTANCE BANDS ARE:
Lighter and safer than free-weights.
Easy to use for everybody.
Economical, costing much less than a month at the gym.
Maneuverable, so you can easily control the resistance.
Portable, allowing you to workout anytime and anywhere.
Effective, increase muscle strength and decrease body fat.
Bands are safer and more effective than free weights
Resistance band training is designed to increase and tone muscle mass and unlike free weights, resistance bands do not create momentum which is the cause of many injuries when the weight keeps moving, but the ligaments and tendons do not. Free weights are bound by the law of gravity and therefore only supply a downward force; over time this takes a toll on your joints.
The resistance created by the bands comes from their elasticity, generating a force from an infinite variety of angles that strengthens and tones much better than gravity driven free weight exercises
Resistance bands operate in a similar manner to your muscles. As you contract your muscles, they become shorter and more powerful. The bands operate much in the same way; the tension increases the more you stretch them, offering a continuum of resistance. As the band is stretched your muscles are contracted.
Resistance bands provide variable isotonic exercises, meaning the resistance gradually changes throughout the range of motion. This is much safer and easier on your joints than traditional weights.
Resistance band exercises are geared towards functional training using complex movements of several muscle groups, instead of isolating one muscle at a time.
