Every exercise will be different and may require different resistance. Bands are applied to build up as much or as little resistance as you feel necessary. White bands give 5 lb of resistance and blue bands give 7 lb. Make sure you always have at least 2 bands in use in case 1 breaks during use.

What if a tension band breaks?
The tension bands are made from medical grade therapy band material and have a 3 to 1 stretch ratio. They are designed to withstand around 3000-5000 cycles. Bands should be rotated regularly to maximize useful life, and the white bands should always go on top of the blue bands. If a band gets to the end of its useful life, simply replace it with a band from the storage bobbins. Order new bands here when you need more.
How do I know what exercises to do?
If you are under medical care, your doctor or therapist will advise you on which exercises and tensions to use. If you are not under medical care or you use WhisperSLYDE® for fitness, check out the wide array of exercise programs available on our YouTube channel, or check out our fitness and physical therapy overview videos.
