Which Stretch Bands?

I’m working out at home and want/need to do lat pulldowns (working toward my goal of doing pull-ups). I don’t have any way of doing lat pulldowns/cable rows so I’m looking at stretch bands. What to buy?

I’ve found these: http://www.flexcart.com/members/elitefts/default.asp?m=PD&cid=138&pid=245

or these: http://www.flexcart.com/members/elitefts/default.asp?m=PD&cid=138&pid=1205

I can’t tell from the descriptions which are more applicable to my situation.

Oh, I also don’t want to “outgrow” whichever one’s I get. I’d like them to be strong enough that they’re a challenge for a while.

Get the jumpstretch bands from elitefts.com.

You will only need the mini-band, light band and average bands. The strong bands are for people squatting in the 700-1000 pound range.

But buy them from elitefts.com and support Dave Tate’s under armour habit and Jim Wendler’s subscription to Scoreland.com
