Bands

ok seriously i REALLY wanna buy some of Loui Simmons bands...
they look like seriously good times. yes i know be careful etc, i plan on it

anyways
just wish there was a way to know how much "weight" they added rather than just "light" "average" and "strong" because im pretty sure what THEY consider "light" is probably heavy or at least moderate for me

so anyone here know how much "weight" per kind of band is added?

Re: Bands

Google either Jump stretch (I've used them and are good) or Iron Woody (just order some, heard great stuff about them). They have a "guesimate" on the poundage

Re: Bands

Check out the Muscle Driver site as well they have some nice bands that are comparable to the Woody bands.

probably going with iron woody. im cool with guesstimates cuz they have a semblance of a measurableness to them .
and they are WAY cheaper than the ones on Simmon's site (what i a surprise i know)
cant wait till i get paid

I bought a MD Medium (2.5" Blue). Has held up well to Pullup assistance duties.

What I like about MD is they let you buy single bands. Many other CF vendors sell in pairs.

Re: Bands

McMaster Carr catalog. Pallet bands. Cheap and durable, have used mine for almost 2 years, no problems.

Re: Bands

+1 to McMaster Carr bands. They're lighter on resistance than Iron Woody or Muscle Driver, but they cost ten dollars each and have free overnight shipping.

Re: Bands

+2 on McMaster pallet bands. They have served me well for pull-up assist and for a great price, though I hope not to have to use them at some point this year for that but I'm sure I'll need them when I get my rings hooked up. ; )
