How to choose the elastic band?
- The strength of each band will dictate their intended use.
- If you want to train large muscles, such as the buttocks or leg muscles, you must use a high resistance.
- If you want to work arms it can be very low resistance.
- In everyday life, you can change resistance to a higher strength band on the scale when you feel you can do the repetitions without working the muscle.
Tips for caring for and prolonging the life of elastic bands
1) After use, store in a bag or box always looking for a cool and ventilated space.
2) To prevent sticking, put on talcum from time to time, so the elastic properties will be conserved and last longer.
3) During training, hold the band between the thumb and index finger or wrap in the palm of the hand, avoiding pressing with the nails, not to tear it.
4) Accessories like rings, watch or earrings, which can tear the sash.
5) Wash the band with mild soap and water to wipe off the sweat, dry with a towel and then add talcum powder. Once a month.
In this way the service life of the elastic band will be extended much longer.
