Training Tips:

1) Remember to always train within the physical limits of the band.  What this means is no matter how much effort you are exerting for a given exercise, the resistance band should still be capable of stretching a little further.   If the band is stretched to its maximum where there is no more stretch left in it you will essentially turn the resistance band into a static rope, or cable, incapable of returning any elastic force back.  This greatly reduces its effectiveness.  If this should happen to you, then watch the video on How to Increase Resistance and use one of the methods presented there.

2) Pay close attention to the way your body position is shown for each exercise, because correct positioning is needed to isolate specific muscle groups.
