  • Extra-light resistance bands are recommended for frail individuals who are rehabilitating. These bands provide very little tension, equal to usually less than 2 lbs .
  • Light resistance bands are used in light rehab and by women. Light bands are typically long and thin and provide between 3 and 5 lbs. (1.36 and 2.27 kgs) of resistance approximately. These bands are best for beginners, elderly users, rehabilitation purposes and to work very small, stabilizing muscles with users who may have suffered an injury and need very light resistance.
  • If you are of average fitness level, an older man or an untrained women, consider a medium resistance band which is a good all around band for the average workout. Medium bands allow for about 8 lbs. (3.63 kg) of resistance approximately. They are appropriate for exercisers who want to increase muscular endurance by doing high repetitions -- 15 or more -- with less weight. These bands are typically used to do isolation exercises for small to moderate muscle groups, such as press downs for the triceps, curls for the biceps or lateral raises for the shoulder muscles.
  • Heavy bands can be used for untrained men who are active as well as active women. These bands work well for already fit active users who work out regularly. Heavy bands can provide as much as 12 to 15 lbs. (5.44 to 6.8 kgs) of resistance approximately. Appropriate for advanced exercisers, heavy bands are usually used to work larger muscles, such as your hamstrings, quadriceps or chest muscles. Some exercises that may be appropriate for heavy bands are leg curls, leg extensions and chest presses.
  • Extra-heavy bands are recommended for active men and women who are strong and use of Extra heavy bands should be reserved for the strongest and most experienced users. The heaviest band, labeled extra-heavy should be employed by experienced users. These extra-heavy bands can provide as much as 20 lbs. (9.07 kgs) of resistance approximately. Ideal for more advanced exercisers wanting higher levels of resistance, these bands are used to do compound exercises that work more than one muscle group, such as squats, lunges and rows.
  • Ultra-heavy resistance bands should be used by female bodybuilders and strong men.
  • Buyers should be able to identify the resistance level of any given resistance band by its color however the identification of band strength by color system is not common to all manufacturers, so buyers should carefully read the resistance specifications for the brand of the bands they are purchasing.
