CHOOSE THE RESISTANCE THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU

Theraband/dynaband equivalents

2 or more flat bands are recommended since smaller muscles (arms, shoulders) require less resistance while larger muscles (chest, back, legs) require more resistance. Also, as you get stronger you'll need more resistance. However, if you decide to get only 1 band, keep in mind you cannot adjust the resistance to make it easier, but you can adjust it somewhat to make it harder.
