Training Schedule: The Progress Chart and Weekly Training Schedule located in Section 5 will guide you through all of the exercises and allow you to chart your progress along the way.

Training Tips:

1) Keep most of your weight on the front foot where the band is attached to and use the back foot mainly for balance.

2) 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.

3) It doesn’t matter what time of day you exercise however, your body will respond best if you choose the same time each day to train.
