    Best combination of bands

    Hi,

    I am looking to revamp my bands from Elitefts which have different bands now it seems since the last time I bought. Not sure if they are worse than the old pro and onyx bands.

    But basically if you look at the resistance chart, I want to get all but the first one but only 1 of each, and that's where I am a bit uncertain.

    Most of my exercises I only need one band, except bench, squat, deadlift. For these I prefer reverse band versions so I use the largest one or one below.

    If I use the other versions, i.e. regular band lifts, then I use the orange one (4th) in terms of proper resistance.

    So I was wondering if it's better if I buy all except the first one, but 2 of the last one (blue) or only one of each? If I need the blue for my reverse lifts, I was thinking maybe I can combine 3rd and 5th bands that roughly match the blue one.

    Is this a stupid idea?

    This is mostly not to have and carry a ton of duplicate bands. What do you guys think?

    The same idea applies to orange (4th). If I wanted to use that one, I could combine the first one (which I planned to skip buying), and the 3rd one to roughly match. But also I am not as concerned about it as I don't use them this way. So not sure if I should just get a pair of this one in this case or not.

    Or is the slight imbalances of the combined bands be too great to make it practical?

    Also in my current combo, the store seems to give me 2 free 2nd band (red).


    Thanks in advance.

    Not to add to your confusion, I've used Elite FTS and Iron Woody bands for many years, I've found Iron Woody to be better quality. I still have all of my original Iron Woody bands from over 10 years ago and about less than half my Elite FTS bands. If you want to check them out.

    Thanks a lot let me check those out.

    Btw the elitefts website checkout is not working. Paypal errors out every single time, and going through regular check out, it also fails in the shipping stage. Are they still in business? Would be nice if they bothered to hire a competent web guy to make a decent website.

    same - thanks for iron woody recommendation!

    OP - i would buy exact band doubles for the ones you use in duplicate - would be super s41tty to have a minor muscle adjustment due to something strange with a band that causes an injury or something.

    prolly not likely - but i am a serial position corrector under the bar - and some stupid s41t like that would happen to my dumba56 🥴
