Care Guide
  • Storage: Keep out of direct sunlight, humid environments or excessively hot or cold temperatures.
  • Cleaning: Yes, bands can be hand washed. Hand wash with warm water and a non-abrasive cleaning solution. Hang to dry. (Ex. Dawn dish soap).
  • Caution: Avoid direct contact with knurling, asphalt, concrete, resistance board systems or any abrasive surface.
  • Life Span: Based on average use -which we assume to be 1-hr of use 3 times per week- bands should last 12-18 months in residential settings and 6-9 months in commercial settings.
  • Normal Wear & Tear: Our bands are one continuous piece of latex made through a proprietary layering process with a total of 15 layers. Over time the bands may begin to peel or show other signs of use. This is normal and does not affect the integrity or application of bands when minor. If peeling gets worse, it may be a sign that your band is aging and may be due for a replacement.

The #0 Orange band provides our lowest level of resistance and is great for light stretching, warming up, rehabilitation and shoulder activation.

Bands #1 & #2 are best for general conditioning, rehabilitation, stretching, jumping, speed training, aerobics, and for lifters as assistance for the upper body to increase the resistance for bicep and triceps.

Either band is great for beginners and light weightlifters. Both can be used to safely increase the intensity of a workout without adding additional weights to a bar. For the stronger lifter, they will add considerable resistance to bicep and tricep exercises.

Bands #3 & #4 can be used by stronger benchers, and with exercises involving the lower body, calves, quads, hamstring and glutes.

Large and X-Large Bands (#5 & 6) are usually used for obtaining maximum resistance with squats, deadlifts, leg presses and shrugs.

Excellent Resistance Bands

I have found variable resistance training with Serious Steel bands to be great as I build up from several injuries. These bands are excellent quality and are available from light to very heavy. I initially thought I’d never need the heavier bands but I am seeing rapid results and could easily be using #5 with the X3 bar in a few months. The most effective strength training I’ve ever done.

Samantha Crooks

My trainer & gym owner decided to close his business down a few months after I joined (no hard feelings, great reasoning). He used these in the gym & in my training. He lives this company. Happy with my elbow cuffs & wrist straps he recommended from here, I decided to purchase the set to use at home until I find another gym I like. I love that I can travel with them. The quality compared to others I've used is phenomenal. Very affordable. I love that they are local to me (VA). My rheumatologist was impressed by the quality & took down their info (hopefully they will purchase &/or share).

Best resistance bands I've used!

These are the best resistance bands I've ever used. They are highly durable and withstand so much without me having to worry about them getting damaged. They have been a dream to use and have added so much more versatility to my workouts. I highly recommend!

Solid Set of Bands

I'd used mobility bands before, but never ones with this much "weight." Construction is solid, and attaching to bars or posts via half hitch or loop provides a solid anchor that doesn't distress the band at all. Though I haven't had these long enough for it to be an issue, you'll want to store these in a cool, dry place, clean them if they get dirty, and make sure to alter where you "knot" them to avoid repeated wear in a single spot. Solid product.
