1. Also wanted to mention that the brand name is Perform Better. I have 1 inch and 1.5 inches. 1.5 was really strong for pull ups but also good for stretching. The 1 inch was good for the pull up assistance. I quickly moved from the 1.5 inch to the 1 inch for pullups. Hope this helps

The diameter of the pallet band is indeed 35"--but the woody band's diameter is not 41", that's just a measurement when folded in half end to end. The pallet band's measurement (from the website) is given by it's circumference--so the diameter would be correct if the band were configured in a cirlce. But folded in half, you're no longer dealing with a perfect circle but a flattened elipse. To find the length of the pallet band folded, you would need to first find the area of that ellipse. You can do so by going here:

It's folded flat,how is it an ellipse?And you spelled ELLIPSE wrong.

A circle folded flat is an ellipse...
Sorry I spelled ellipse incorrectly

Technically it is,but for the purpose of finding out the length of the band it's just the half of the circumference,no need for a formula.I didn't mean to sound like a douche bag about spelling,but the other guy rudely insisting I'm wrong and that it's the diameter that's important got me a little fired up.What the hell would the diameter have to do with it?I repped you too.

Thanks--wasn't saying you were incorrect, either. I was pointing out that circumference had nothing to do with it--just like you did. You're right about the folded length of the pallet band...
...now if I could somehow figure out how to do some decent UNassisted pullups...

LOL

9. WOW...........

So, my question was answered by FERRUM_MAXIMUS......That is the correct aswer I am looking for right? The length it would be fold to fold.....

I PMed you.

11. here's another seller (I have these, but Iron Woody is great too)

http://www.power-systems.com/p-3336-strength-bands.aspx

they have multiple other uses for squats, bench, deadlifts, pull throughs, etc... the WESTSIDE BARBELL style uses bands quite a bit
