Choosing your Resistance Band

Fitstream resistance bands are available in seven different resistance levels ranging from 2-150 lbs.  

ImageBandWidthLengthResistanceCommonly used for
micro band Micro Resistance Band (orange) 1/4 inch 41 inches 2-15 lbs

Our lightest band, the micro is perfect for general warm-ups, stretching and for anyone new to resistance training, children or pilates. 

mini band Mini Resistance Band (purple) 1/2 inch 41 inches 5-35 lbs

The mini and super-mini bands are best for general fitness training, rehabilitation, stretching, jumping, speed training, aerobics and for adding progressive resistance to weight training exercises.

They're an excellent choice for relatively light weightlifters who want to add intensity to their workouts without adding additional weight, or for advanced lifters to add considerable resistance to bicep and triceps exercises.

These bands are also commonly used for pull-up assistance training.

Super mini Super-Mini Resistance Band (Red) 13/16 inch 41 inches 10-50 lbs
Small band Small Resistance Band (Blue) 1 1/8 inches 41 inches 25-80 lbs The small and medium band options are the choice for larger weight training exercises, stronger bench pressers and movements involving the lower body, calves, quads, hamstrings and glutes.
Medium Band Medium Resistance Band (Green) 1 3/4 inches 41 inches 50-120 lbs
Large band Large Resistance Band (Black) 2 1/2 inches 41 inches 60-150 lbs

The large band is our biggest band and used by very strong, heavy weightlifters for adding serious resistance to squats, deadlifts, leg presses and shrugs.

They can also be used for explosive pulls and resisted stationary running.

Sprint band Extra Long Sprint Band (Green) 1 3/4 inches 79 inches / 2 metres 50-120 lbs  

An extra large resistance band that is 2 metres in length, specially designed for exercises that usually require the joining of two bands together.

This band is a solution for those resisted sprint drills or ballistic running and lunging and will allow for a sprint distance of 12-18 feet depending on an athlete's strength levels.

Why choose Fitstream Bands?

Fitstream bands are extremely high quality and superior to many of the cheaper bands on the market today in durability and effectiveness. Each band is made from layered latex rubber without any sewing.

Layered latex is essential to help prevent breakage, even under high loads and explosive training. If one layer is compromised the entire band won't split through like injection moulded bands that are one single piece of rubber. This means our bands are safer and last much longer and is why you'll see them in top gyms and training facilities around the world. 

Bands vs Free Weights

Resistance bands have advantages to free weights or machines. Firstly, bands are much more portable due to their light weight and small foot space. This means that they are excellent travel companions and are a firm favourite for people who travel frequently and don’t always have access to gym facilities.

Resistance bands also provide variable resistance and you will find that exercises actually increase in difficulty the further they’re stretched. This is contrary to free weights, in which most exercises get easier as you move through the range of motion. As a result, you will often see bands combined with free weights to introduce progressive resistance into traditional weight training exercises.

How long do Fitstream Bands last?

We firmly believe that Fitstream bands are the best on the market. Our bands have been used in gyms around the world for years and are a consistent choice for many top gyms and personal trainers. Some of our clients have bands that are nearly ten years old!

Fitstream bands come with a 1-year warranty from the date of purchase which covers any manufacturing defects.

How should I store my resistance bands?

To maximize the lifespan of your bands we recommend that you store them in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight and ensure that they’re wiped down regularly.

How do I setup the Fitstream Resistance Bands

This depends on how you’re using the bands. If you’re using for bodyweight assistance or resistance exercises you don’t need anything other than the bands themselves and your bodyweight.

However, bands are also frequently used with free weight training by hooking the bands directly over barbells or dumbbells for added resistance.

To increase the versatility of the bands you can purchase band accessory kits and handles from Fitstream so that you can connect to doors, bars or other anchor points when training.

Having received this last week I was pleased with the quality, especially as it was cheaper than other brands of resistance bands (of which there seems to be very few companies selling in the UK). Have already started using it with some of my athletes, this level of resistance is particularly useful when correcting squat technique where the knees buckle in (a sign the glutes aren't firing enough), just double up and loop just above the knee and use in warm-up sets. Will be ordering more levels of resistance for my other exercises.

I bought one of these months ago, FS was the first site I'd stumbled across, and I was buying other stuff anyway, so at the time I thought nothing of it. Only now that I've gotten around to getting more have I realised the ammount of crap out there. I've been tugging away at the FS band for months with reckless abandon and it's as good as new. Stetches as far as I can pull it. As Poliquin says, you only pay for quality once. Very durable. Nobody likes their rubber splitting...
Great product (though I won't comment on the S&H fees..)
