TheraBand Professional Latex Resistance Band Loops provide continuous loop elastic bands in the same colors and resistances as authentic TheraBand System of Progressive Resistance. The 3" x 8" wide loops can be used for a variety of applications particularly lower body exercises to increase strength and balance. Band Loops eliminate the need to tie traditional bands, thus prolonging life and reducing additional wear.
- 3 inch wide continuous loop elastic bands in the same colors and resistances as authentic TheraBand System of Progressive Resistance improves strength and flexibility in glutes, knees and hips
- Ideal for a variety of exercises, particularly lower body exercises to increase strength and balance
- The continuous loop provides a comfortable alternative to tying flat Resistance Bands into loops
- Rehabilitate muscles and increase flexibility through simple yet effective workouts to increase strength and improve motion
- 8'' long (laid flat) x 3'' wide
- Color-coded progressive resistance
- Lightweight and portable
- Extremely durable
Perfect for Home
Athletes will use bands around the wrists to improve shoulder flexibility and remind athletes of the proper positioning of the arms. When used around the ankles or thighs the bands are a great tool for strengthening large and small muscle groups in the legs.
TheraBand Resistance Band Loops are continuous 3" wide loop elastic bands used for a variety of applications, particularly lower body exercise to increase strength and balance. The band loops are an effective and efficient way to to strengthen muscles and has the added benefits of convenience, portability, and eliminates the need to tie traditional bands, thus prolonging life and reducing additional wear. The band loops come in four resistance levels, including yellow, red, green, and blue and are available in three lay flat lengths of 8", 12" and 18".

TheraBand™ bands and tubing are color-coded to identify the level of resistance. The color band or tubing you use depends on the results you want to achieve with your strengthening routine. The lighter resistance levels (tan and yellow) are good for persons in the early stages of rehabilitation. Medium levels of resistance (red and green) are good for those persons starting a strengthening program, or for persons increasing muscular endurance. Higher levels of resistance (blue, black, silver, and gold) are for more advanced exercisers needing more resistance. Consult with an exercise or healthcare professional to determine which resistance is best for you.
With normal daily use, the exercisers should last for many months. However, they won't last forever. They may break if stretched beyond 300% elongation, or if they are used with small tears or abrasions. These small tears and abrasions usually occur at the ''connection point'' of the band or tubing to an attachment device. Therefore, always inspect the band or tubing (particularly near the connection) before use. It is recommended to use the TheraBand™ Door Anchor, Exercise Handle, and Assist for connection. Be aware that jewelry, fingernails, and other sharp objects may cause small tears or abrasions. Always protect the eyes during exercise with elastic bands or tubing. Do not stretch bands or tubing beyond 3 times their resting length (300% elongation).
Always inspect your bands or tubing for signs of wear, including small tears, abrasions, or cracks before use. Pay particular attention to the connection point. Always replace the bands or tubing with any sign of wear. With heavy use, such as in a physical therapy clinic, bands and tubing should be replaced every 1-2 months. The bands and tubing will not last forever, and will experience normal wear and tear with extended use. However, they should be safe to use as long as there are no visible signs of wear.
Elastic resistance has different properties than free weights, in that elastic resistance doesn't rely on gravity to produce force. Both elastic and isotonic resistance provide similar strength curve patterns (''bell-shaped''), similar muscle activation levels (EMG), and similar strength gains. The main difference is that the resistance produced by elastics must be quantified by noting the amount of stretch in the band or tubing. For example, a red Thera-Band resistive band produces 3.7 pounds of force at 100% stretch.
Immerse the band or tube in fresh clean water in a sink or under a running faucet. Rub a small amount of mild hand soap over the wet band or tube and then rinse in fresh water. Lay flat to dry, or drape the band or tube over the back of a chair or similar object and allow to thoroughly dry. Once dry, rub a small amount of talcum, baby powder, corn starch, or similar powder over the surface of the band or tube to prevent sticking
TheraBand™ resistive bands and tubing are made of natural rubber latex made into sheets and tubing. Latex-free TheraBand™ resistive bands are made of synthetic rubber. The trademarked colors indicate the resistance levels.
There is one resistance band per box.
