I've ordered a couple sets of the EFS short bands and plan to start training with bands soon. I'll be using dumbells or a barbell to anchor the bands under my bench and I'm wondering if the weight listed in the tension chart is per band or for a set of bands. Does anyone know for certain?
In the video clip I think they say the weight is per band but that seems unlikely because a set of the heavy bands would add between 470 and 680 pounds to a lift.
I'm getting sets of mini bands and monster mini bands and I'm wondering how much weight I'll have to use to hold down the straps.
I'm almost certain they mean for the pair of bands so that a pair of short mini bands adds ~70lb at the top of a bench and the heavy bands would add ~350lb at the top of a bench. If you're uisng the heavy bands you'd better anchor your rack to the floor, lol.
I had the same question. I reviewed the video which Dave Tate posted on short bands. After review, and after looking at the chart, I concluded that chart reflects resistance for a pair of short bands.
It would be nice if Elite FTS clarified this.
The short bands are nuts. The Yellow ones are as thick as a tow strap.

I have the short monster minis and they are pretty sweet
they are nice to use for deadlifts in a rack so you get tension the whole way through.......... oh and the red and black ones are great for flinging across the gym...... I kinda want to order one just to play with
