Which Bands to Buy?

Hi guys,

I am asking for a friend of mine who would really likte to try training with bands (me too if he really gets them :wink: ) but has no clue which bands he should get.

His lifts are something like this: Bench ~330lbs, Squat ~440 lbs, Deadlift ~440 lbs.
The bands would only be used on the DE days he is currently doing.

I was thinking Mini-Bands for the Bench Press and Average-Bands for the Squat or maybe Light/MonsterMini-Bands for both (more costefficient but probably too heavy/light for bench/squat ??? )

I am absolutely no expert, so any educated opinion from you guys would be really apreciated.

Thanks,
e.

minis and average/lights should be a good start. Meant to say greens but wrote lights.

Ya, minis will be plenty for bench, and for me, lights or monster minis will do the trick on squat.
