Which elastic bands?
Which elastic bands?
1/31/13 2:15 PM
Hi guys, I'm about to start the p90x after a year at the gym. I use 50-55 lbs dumbbells to do chest at the bench and around 20 lbs for biceps.

I want to use elastic bands for the p90 since are more affordable. What kind should I get? the extreme one or the lighter ones?

Thank you all!

Most bands come as a set, with 4 or 5 different varieties.
If you are going to do the X with bands, you can't be limited to only one.

If you are purchasing bands from Beachbody I would recommend you go with the heavier (higher) weight bands. the lighters ones (5, 10, 15lb weights) I think you would find too light.

If you are not purchasing BB bands - beware of bands that dont have sturdy attachments to the handles. You dont want to find it flying back toward your face (I had that happen - not fun)

I have a thread started for people who have started P90X recently, come check it out! There are many people who are doing it for the first time and a few that are on 2nd rounds. Lots of great information and fun.
