I recentally bought some bands, just to feel them out I used one band wraped round my back for my speed benches, I did this for 3 weeks and last week I just used strait weight 145, 60% of my last meet bench (I also hit a new pr on the bench at 315) So with that background here are my questions:
How much tention does one (purple or light) band have? 20-30 lbs or so?
And Should I use 190 (60% of 315) for my bench cycle now? It seems kind of heavy for speed work. I was thinking I should use 170 or so just to keep the speed up.
Thanks in advance
