Stretching the Life of Your Resistance Bands
Like any piece of equipment, your resistance bands need to be properly taken care of to extend the life for continued use. Letting wet bands stay wet or allowing bands to lie in the hot sun or freezing cold for long periods of time will begin to prematurely break down the latex and weaken the band. Making sure bands dry out properly and are stored in appropriate temperatures will result in bands lasting a long time.
With daily use small bands have a life span of 8-12 months. 2-3 times per week use have a life span of up to 2 years.
