The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    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.
