    resistance bands

    I bought a small blue(25-80lbs)resistance band
    a while ago to help with pullups.
    I need to get a lighter band for prehab/rehab work-face pulls, external rotations,pull aparts etc.

    If the bands are as follows:
    # 1 - Mini (Plain) 5-35 lbs
    # 2 - Super Mini (Red) 10-50 lbs
    # 3 - Small (Blue) 25-80 lbs

    isn't the red band redundant if it goes from 10-50lbs if you get a plain and a blue? Or maybe I'll just buy the two lightest bands anyway.

    How much are they? If they are expensive just buy the mini and work between the two. I have a full set of bands and short bands so I can continue to change my routine. I probably spent around $200 for all of them tho. But the difference between lifting with and without bands is noticeable.

    You should be able to use the #2 band for all of your prehab/rehab work.

    If they are inexpensive it may make sense to get the #1 as well since shipping charges can sometimes cost more than the actual bands.
