Strenth Bands are not just for powerlifting and weightlifting. They can be used for:
- Speed and agility training
- Flexibility exercises
- General conditioning
General Usage Guidelines
Below are some very general guidelines for band usage. Trial and error may be necessary to find the band best suited to your particular fitness level and usage.
- Mini and Super-mini Bands (#1 & #2) are best
for general conditioning, rehabilitation, stretching, jumping,
speed training, aerobics, and for lifters as assistance for the
upper body to increase the resistance for biceps and triceps. Either
band is great for beginners and light weightlifters. Both can
be used to safely increase the intensity of a workout without
adding additional weights to a bar. For the stronger lifter,
they will add considerable resistance to bicep and tricep exercises.
- Small and Medium Bands (#3 & #4) can be used
by stronger benchers, and with exercises involving the lower
body, calves, quads, hamstring and glutes.
- Large, X-Large, & Monster Bands ( #5, 6 & 7) are
usually used for obtaining maximum resistance with squats, deadlifts,
leg presses and shrugs.
Fitness Band Precautions
Therehas been a recent increase in people doing some incredibly ill-advisedand reckless activities using our and other manufacturers’ bands. Just because you see someone doing something on a YouTube video does not make it safe, or that you should attempt it. We have absolutely no control over what people do with our bands after the purchase, so we offer the following information and disclaimer.
CFF Strength Bands are made from latex rubber. Since latex is an
organic material, it will degrade over time, and that is a fact. In
simple words everyone can understand, all bands (whether our bands or
someone else’s) will eventually wear out and break.
It is just a matter of how and when. If anyone one tells you that
their bands don’t break, they are lying. (Think of it as someone
telling you that the tires on your car will never wear out or need to
be replaced.) That being said:
inspect your bands carefully EACH
TIME BEFORE USE for any tears,
wear or damage. Strength Bands (like any rubber band, large or small)
will eventually wear out and/or break over time.
use a damaged band, don't over-stress them, and don't
use them for something that they are not intended
- Always wear eye
- Use common sense.
purchasing bands, you agree to use them responsibly,
and at your own risk. Bands are not toys. CFF
assumes no responsibility for injuries caused by
wear, breakage or misuse.
The Resistance Sprinting Exercise
There is a popular exercise making the rounds where a band is attached to a fixed anchor (door, pole, etc.) and you run with the band around you until it stops your progress. In essence, the band is being stretched to its maximum resistance and travel capacity. Most video examples ofthis exercise usually show one band being utilized. The problem is that because of the stress, one band may quickly break, usually at the connection point. So please read the following carefully:
- If you are going
to attempt this exercise (or any other), you do so at your own risk.
- At least four
bands of equal size should be linked together in order to dissipate the energy
being transferred to the bands. We will
not warranty the bands if less than four bands are used.
- Loop the bands together to connect them. Don't knot them together.
- Undo the loops after each use to prevent excessive wear at the contact points.
do not recommend that a door be used as an anchor point. Doors are
notorious for flying open at the wrong time, and may not be strong
enough for the stress you are applying to them. So don’t use a door as
a connection point, and make sure that whatever you are anchoring to is
strong enough to withstand the stress.
