The good news is you don’t have to go out and buy a weight set to build lean muscle! A study found that resistance workouts using elastic tubing are just as effective as those using free weights! The colors are pretty, but they actually do mean something. The different colors signal the resistance level. The more the band is stretched, the higher the resistance level. Unfortunately there is not a universal color system when it comes to band color, but below is a guide to get you started. I know that these colors are applicable to SPRI brand resistance bands.
Yellow 2-5 pounds
Green 3-8 pounds
Red 5-10 pounds
Blue 7-16 pounds
