- CFF 41" 'Resistance Bands' - Power Band / Fitness Band
Add resistance - or support - to your workout with resistance bands! It's one of the best mobility and resistance training tools around. Use them to remove slack at the beginning of reps, resulting in immediate muscle engagement, or use them to help pull you up off the bottom when trying something new. Sky's the limit when it comes to these.
Our strength bands utilize the same or better quality latex as the competition, but we offer them at substantially lower prices. All bands have the resistance level clearly marked on them.

41" Monster Bands are also available in convenient sets!
Mini and super-mini bands (#1 & #2) are best for general conditioning, rehabilitation, stretching, jumping, speed training, aerobics, and for lifters as upper body assistance and increasing resistance for biceps and triceps. Either band is great for beginners and light weightlifters. Both can be used to safely increase the intensity of a workout without adding additional weight to a bar. For the stronger lifter, they add considerable resistance to bicep and tricep exercises.
Small and medium bands (#3 & #4) can be used by stronger benchers, and with exercises involving the lower body, calves, quads, hamstring and glutes.
Large, X-large, & Monster bands ( #5, 6 & 7) are usually used for obtaining maximum resistance with squats, deadlifts, leg presses and shrugs.
Because they do all of the above. Our bands are made from the same (or better) quality latex as any you’ll find online. We had to ensure we had the best materials available given the wide variety of ways people use our bands. We offer bands in 12-inch, 20-inch, and 41-inch Monster Band sizes.
The thinner, lighter weight mobility bands are excellent for warming up and rehabilitation work. For example, slipping a #0 or #2 band around the ankles and extending one foot forward, backward, or out to the side might be recommended for rehabilitating a lower back injury.
At the other end of the spectrum, hang a #6 or #7 band from the pull up bar, slip a knee into the other end, and focus on proper pull up form. The assist from the band might be just what coach ordered to get you closer to doing your first pull up.
Many people forego dumbbells or other free weights altogether, using strength bands exclusively. They might not allow for the fine tuned accuracy of bumper plates or dumbbells, but they can—and often are—used to do the same job. What’s more, strength band movements begin and end under tension. They engage muscle fibers throughout the entire movement.
There are literally thousands of videos online demonstrating total body workouts using only strength bands. Whether you’re looking for weight loss, general conditioning, or strength building exercises, you’re sure to find someone showing you how to exercise with strength bands.
What’s the difference between strength bands and resistance bands? Aren’t they the same thing? Yes and no! While strength training does rely on resistance, some people like to add resistance bands to existing movements to eliminate slack and increase challenges.
Every weightlifting movement requires us to overcome inertia. Once we’ve got the weight moving, we simply keep it moving. In other words, it takes more effort to start moving the weight than to keep it moving. Resistance bands, on the other hand, see increased resistance the further they’re stretched. Using resistance bands increases resistance at the top of the movement.
The only limits to what can be done with mobility, strength, and resistance bands is your imagination. We’d just caution you to always put safety first. The forces these bands are capable of generating can put you on a fast track to a Darwin Award. We know you’re smarter than that, so we hope you’ll understand we have to run the following information & disclaimer.
There's been a recent increase in people doing some incredibly ill-advised and reckless activities using our and other manufacturers’ bands. Just because you see someone doing something on YouTube doesn't make it safe - or mean you should attempt it. We have absolutely no control over what people do with our bands after the purchase, so we offer the following information and disclaimer.
CFF Strength Bands are made from latex rubber. Since latex is an organic material, it will degrade over time, and that is a fact. In simple words everyone can understand, all bands (whether ours or someone else’s) will eventually wear out and break. It is just a matter of how and when. If anyone one tells you their bands don’t break, they are lying. (Think of it as someone telling you that the tires on your car will never wear out or need to be replaced.) That being said:
There is a popular exercise making the rounds where a band is attached to a fixed anchor (door, pole, etc.) and you run with the band around you until it stops your progress. In essence, the band is being stretched to its maximum resistance and travel capacity. Most video examples of this exercise usually show one band being utilized. The problem is that because of the stress, one band may quickly break, usually at the connection point. So please read the following carefully:
We do not recommend that a door be used as an anchor point. Doors are notorious for flying open at the wrong time, and may not be strong enough for the stress you are applying to them. So don’t use a door as a connection point, and make sure that whatever you are anchoring to is strong enough to withstand the stress.
Some uses include:
Courtney of PetitieAthleat.com uses our bands as part of an AMRAP session preparing for the 2016 Open.
Shannon Bahadoor of CrossFit Hershey demonstrates popular ways to use resistance bands for mobility & training.
