TheraBands have a long history of use in recovery from various joint surgeries or pinched nerves, and are especially useful in slowing osteoporosis. They avoid the danger of sudden shifting weight that can occur with hand held weights. The tension is steady and adjustable through use of color coded strenghts. They are perfect for home use and travel because they take up so little space and they won’t hold you up in the security check-in line!

Great Way to Get Stronger- At Home!!,
Thera-Band Latex Exercise Band Pack – Light – 1 Thin/1 Medium/1Heavy – 5.5″ X 5′ – Free Shipping is a great way to improve your strength without going to the gym.
These bands work by providing direct resistance to your muscles. In order for a muscle to get stronger, it must constantly be challenged. For instance, if you pull on the light band 10 times a day, every day, you will NOT get stronger- simply because your muscles are used to doing it 10 times already and have no reason to get stronger. HOWEVER, if you try to pull on the band 12 or 15 times, well, your muscles aren’t used to that and now have a reason to get stronger. This is called progressive resistance and is how all muscles get stronger.
That’s why this pack of therabands is so great- when you can do your exercises with the light band, simply switch to the medium one and you’ll get stronger. Cheap, portable, and effective- everything you’d want in an exercise device! Also recommend Strength Band Training (American Sport Education Prog) for more on getting stronger with resistance bands.

Resistance much less than expected and had a reaction to the powder on the bands!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Thera-Band Light Set of 3 – 5FT Latex Resistance Exercise Bands Yellow, Red & Green – Polybag (Misc.)
I had high hopes for these bands (I’m a Trainer so I invested in a few sets of the heavy and a few sets of the light) – but the Heavy/Extra Heavy was no more resistant than my medium in other bands, and the light won’t challenge even my beginner clients – would use the heavier with them. For the price I was going to deal with this by doubling the bands BUT I am having a major reaction to the product. This was totally unexpected since I don’t have an allergy to latex (I use latex gloves when I’m cleaning) so I really didn’t expect to have one from latex bands. To make matters worse, I made the mistake of whiping hair out of my eyes after touching them, and now that area of my face is tingling, too. UPDATE: Was talking with a friend who immediately said “wow, it must be the powder they put on it”…and that would explain it (there is a coating of powder that was all over my hands and dried them out) since I am not allergic to latex. Just a sad occurence…be careful and if you’re fingers start to tingle after using DON’T touch your face…LOL
