Hello, first post here!
I recently bought my first resistance band, the black one from Freeletic’s own store (15-38kg, 35-85lb to be exact).
First workout something was called a reverse chop where you have your band underneath one foot and with both hands extend the band infront of you and over your head, towards the opposite side of the foot which is holding the band.
It might be just because of either lack of strength or inexperience with resistance bands, but I had no chance of getting the band anywhere close to that height, perhaps to chest level or so. Any more than that and I started to worry about the band snapping.
Not being able to extend it above my head makes me wonder if the workout is even effective or completely useless.
Any tips on how to improve this workout? Should I buy a band with lower resistance or just try to force it a bit more to see how far it stretches?
First workout that I have had this kinda technical issue with so far (+1month in), great app!
Ps. For some weird reason I can’t find the workout under the Explore section on the app.
Edit: the resistance band used in the video was black too, but it didn’t look as thick and had no text on it like the ones you can buy from the store.
