Woody Bands™ are not just for powerlifting and weightlifting. Each band is 41" long. They can be used for:
- Speed and agility training
- Flexibility exercises
- General conditioning
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 (Purple) & #2 (Red)
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 (Blue) & #4 (Green)
can be used by stronger benchers, and with exercises involving the lower body, calves, quads, hamstring and glutes.
- Large, X-Large, & Monster Bands #5 (Black), #6 (Orange) & #7 (Red)
are usually used for obtaining maximum resistance with squats, deadlifts, leg presses and shrugs. The bands are 41 inches in length.
