You can probably find bands at your local sporting goods store.

Other options are to use a bicycle inner tube or surgical tubing that can usually be purchased at a store that provides supplies for people with physical disabilities.

I bought a set of mini, light, average, and strong from www.elitefts.com. They are the Jumpstretch brand.

Jack,
Try http://www.mcmaster.com/ page 1426. The 3/4"x1/16"x56" work great. Cheap, too.

We got the iron woody brand. Great product. I want to grab a couple of different styles now for a comparative, but IW works great.

Take Tony's advice. Months ago I bought a pair of McMaster Carr bands, part number 8848T32. $12 for the pair. I didn't pay shipping because I located a distribution center 30 minutes away. You'll pay more for the others because they are marketed for a purpose which can command a higher price in the marketplace. Best $12 you'll ever spend on gear.

This might help, at the link Anthony posted they are having a sale on the mini, light and strong bands. I'm thinking of getting some for myself. Does everyone get 2 of each? or would one of each type be sufficient?

I have Iron Woody bands for my students who cannot do pull ups or dips. They work great!

could someone explain how the Jumpstretch bands are used? Is it just for the pullups or are there other uses? The site Tony supplied suggests using them for benchpress, etc. Why would you add a band to a benchpress?

How do you use them for pullups? Not sure where they would attach.

Thanks for helping me out on this.
