WHICH RESISTANCE LEVEL SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?
Light resistance (5 kg) is suitable for beginners who want to train their entire bodies. It's also great for intermediates who want to train their upper bodies.
As for medium resistance (6 kg), it lends itself best to lower-body exercises for intermediates, and upper-body exercises for advanced users.
Lastly, high resistance (7 kg) is perfect for advanced users who want to strengthen the muscles in their lower body.

WHY USE A RESISTANCE BAND?
Adding a resistance band to your workout lets you do resistance work while protecting your joints by not lifting heavy weights.
You'll notice that the resistance increases progressively during your exercises: the harder you pull, the higher the resistance becomes. You can also vary the intensity of your exercises by adjusting the length of the band and changing your range of movement.
The options are virtually endless with an elastic band!
