A Band Question

For those who use bands for supplemental work. Im looking to start doing extra workouts using bands, ie band pull-aparts, leg curls etc. I would like to do band GM’s too. I asked the guys at elitefts and Jim responded that an average band would be best for GM’s. I really just wanna buy a light band as of now, would it work for that, or would it burst or something?

Unless you stretch it past its tensile max, I don’t know why it would burst.

It won’t burst, but I really recommend buying more than 1 band. If you buy a set of light bands, you can stand on 2 bands to do GMs to increase the tension.
