    Quick note: for your safety regularly check the bands for wear and cracking, a guy came into the emergency room last week after a band broke and tore his upper lip into the cartridge of his nose, ugly mess. play safe.

    Great point Mike.

    Lee, what is your honest opinion on these band setups? I have a home gym setup (even though i prefer the gym) as it allows for saved time. I feel the bands can’t give the same results as weight resistance does…what do you think?

    I’ve had this bands for about four years. They are surprisingly well made, I don’t think anyone has to worry about ending up in the emergency room (much better than the shitty versions you’ll find at Walmart). They can provide a great workout too as the band’s strengths go from super easy to too hard. If all you want to do is to get fitter, then this is all you ever need. To get very big maybe you’ll need the whole gym, but even then they’re good for the occasional alternative workout at home or the internship far away from society, etc.

  • Excellent explanation in easy to understand terms. Thnks for presenting the options for using the lastic bands

    Obviously they are not the same as free weights. But these bands can replace a lot of machine exercises at a fraction of the cost. If you don’t have a cable cross over type pulley machine with your home gym then you may want to consider getting a set of bands to replace those exercises.

    I workout at home and use Bands for Cross-overs. I wrap it around a pole on my Power Cage and do 3–4 sets of 30-40 reps. I can really feel this in my Pecs. I hit different angles from low to high to hit all regions of the chest. I do not use them for any other exercises.

  • That looks pretty tough! Good one to try out!

  • Jackson

    That was a great video especially with that awesome dog. Thank you Lee for all the info you always provide, freakin amazing! Also, great info Mike with regards to the (check for wear and tear on the equipment) very good idea! Especially since a person might be wearing street shoes while standing on the bands.

    Again Lee thank you for having me on your auto responder because ALL the info I receive from you is 100% worth reading.

    I’m a senior citizen and have used the Body Lastic bands in the past. One of their selling points is they are easy on the shoulder and elbow joints.

  • simone cooper

    Hi Lee your band exersises are awesome thanks for the fun different ways of using them and thanks for all your knowledge information it’s helped alot thanks again regards Simone .

  • Jim Dooley

    This was a great idea, the 12 week program you gave me is also great, however I never go to a gym so many things did not apply.

    I noticed you just did a video on pullups. I really believe you’re onto something there. Bite sized bits that are affordable for even younger lifters. At a price that anyone can afford.

    This marketing scheme is used by many music instruction sites with great success.

    You might consider doing an entire series along that same line. ie, How to do a proper squat, deadlift or whatever. Good luck Lee and thanks for the help along the way.

    Hey Lee I tried the link for the cables, and the link is not active where else can you recommend to get them at?
