The Band-iTs are similar to our Mini Bands but they are made of a Cotton/Polyester Blend fabric fortified with a high density internal rubber elastic matrix that offers a strong resistance!
Our 3” fabric hip bands offer a different experience for a few reasons:
They are 1” wider than our latex Mini Bands
They are easier to take on and off
They are best used above or below the knee
That being said, you will likely want to rip our Band-iT Resistance Band right off after your first set because it will light things up!
3 THINGS YO MUST KNOW BEFORE USING FABRIC BANDS:
BAND PLACEMENT(Feet Planted):If you are doing squats, RDLs and similar exercises, band placement can be above the knees (easier), below the knees (harder) or in both positions (psychotic).
BAND PLACEMENT(Feet Moving):If you are doing any movement where your feet are moving, another position can be introduced and that is at the ankles. Placement here creates the largest stress and makes exercise harder – it is NOT RECOMMENDED that you use the Mermaid in this position.
JOINT ALIGNMENT: Make sure your ankles, knees and hips are moving the in same direction and that you maintain a neutral spine (no extension/arching or excessive rounding/flexion)
TWO STEPS FOR SELECTING THE PROPER SIZED FABRIC RESISTANCE BAND
STEP #1: Choose Your Length: 13” or 15”
The 3” Band-Its are made in 2 different lengths based on quad size. Choosing a smaller band for greater resistance IS NOT WISE.
3” Band-Its Sizing Chart:
Once you choose a size, move to Step #2
STEP #2: Choose Your Resistance: HEAVY, X-HEAVY, XX-HEAVY
The Anchor: Heavy
Ideal for dynamic lower body warm-ups or stand-alone exercise such as Monster Walks, Sumo Walks, Clam Shells, Hip Thrusts and Squats.
The Navigator: X-Heavy
For those that have out grown The Anchor for warm-ups. Great for cuing “push hips out” during deadlifting and squatting. Can also be used for stand-alone exercises.
The Mermaid: XX-Heavy
Maximal lower body activation with stiffest fabric we could find. Warm Up with The Anchor or Navigator before using this. Extremely durable and tough, this band will bring a lot more challenge than you might expect.
