    Best powerlifting bands in your opinion? (srs)

    Always hear about elitefts bands, but am not sure if there are other good or better brands

    Also, what bands do you recommend for 225x2 bench, 325x3 squat, and 455x2 deadlift?

    thanks in advance

    Right now my bench is 225x7 and I just got mini bands. Haven't tried them out, but you should be OK with 225x2.



    You could probably quad them for your deads, too.

    I bought some cheap bands off ebay and they work fine. 1 set of 5 different sizes for $30. http://www.prowriststraps.com has great gear, and I'm sure their bands are legit.

    If i were you, i would get 4 minis instead of two thicker bands for versatility.

    If not go to the Elite FTS and ask in their Q/A..

    I'd get minis for bench and then averages for deads/squat... Average is ~ 115 lbs of tension at the top of a squat, so like 205 + bands or something. For deads maybe 315 + doubled bands.


    I'm not overly experienced with bands though, just what I'm thinking
    I REP BACK 3.5k +

    They seller didn't give the brand name because of some disclosure deal he had with the manufacturer. The bands had minor imperfections (discoloration from bad dye), so the company sold them to a 3rd party at discounted rates, and he pawned on ebay.

    They looked like this with a solid color.



    edit: the seller on ebay is stretchwellinc
    You could send him an email asking if he will ever get a new shipment of the power lifting resistance bands.
