    Thank you Tom, tensors are a square objects that are you place on the legs of the monolift where you attach your bands. This stretches the band more and gives much more tension. Ill attach a pic. Also some gyms use wooden blocks as tensors...

    Ah. Yeh, I've seen those used but never knew they had a name.

    Strong lifting as always.

    Nice work there. How do you set up the bands when using them for dumbell work? Like this?

    Thanks again Tom!

    That one may not yield enough tension and I dont like a band digging into my hands like that. Try not to over do it on these, bands are rough on the joints.

    Try this set up:
