I was unaware of the various weights and they're out of order. Just so others know. The weights correspond to lbs. of force/100% elongation.
The best way to purchase these bands is by the roll. Then simply scissor a usable length. A 5-foot long piece is usually the norm. If you purchase these (blue) bands "folded flat" you will find a significant crease at the fold; my experience is that they will break at this fold. Also, these bands do deteriorate over time so eventual replacement becomes necessary in any case. The 6-yard roll thus becomes your best buy.
Thera-Bands are color-coded according to strength; "resistance" is the word the manufacturer uses. There are eight "resistance levels" which, from weakest to strongest, are: tan, yellow, red, green, blue, black, silver and gold. An AtlantiCare therapist matched me up with the blue. I am not on a "progressive resistance" program which means that the blue is where I started--and where I'll probably stay.
There are a considerable number of exercises using Thera-Band. I obviously have no idea your purpose in this regard and consequently will not attempt to describe any exercises.
For further information please contact the manufacturer in Akron, Ohio. Their Customer Service number is (330) 633-8460.
Good luck. I hope I have been of some purpose to you.
Green is labeled as heavy, but I think it is more like a medium resistance (for men anyway). This feels nice and comfortable to use and it looks and works exactly the same as other thera-bands which you may get in a DVD package.
The band comes in a 18 feet roll (6 yards) and you just cut it to fit your needs. This flat band measures 4" across in width which is the same as other bands. (This is not rubber tubing, the round band, but it is used in the same way.)
I think that this green resistance level is a good starter band for beginners or regular exercises since you can cut it shorter to increase resistance or longer to decrease resistance.
