The #1 is also great if you are looking to do speed work by adding the band to your bench press, deadlift or squats.
  • #2 (Red) 10-50 lbs. Moderate level of tension for resistance training and pull-up assistance. High tension for banded barbell speed work, but great for traditional band work. This band measures 13/16” wide, 4.5 mm thick and 41” in length. It offers resistance from 10-50 lbs. The #2 band offers a moderate level of tension for resistance training.

  • #4 (Green) 50-120 lbs. Ideal for pull-up assistance and stretching. Only for advance banded barbell training. - This band measures 1 3/4" and has a tension rating of 50-120 lbs. The #4 band is our most popular band and is perfect for stretching. These bands offer a heavy tension and can be used with your barbell for bench press, squats or deadlifts. Make sure to be caution with your first couple of uses as the kinetic energy created by this band tension can be difficult to control.
  • #5 (Black) 60-150. This our heaviest band and should be used with caution. It is a beast! - This band measures 2 1/2" wide, 4.5 mm thick and 41" in length. It offers resistance from 60-150 lbs.

  • PULL-UPS: Serious Steel Bands are a perfect tool to help you with your pull ups, dips or muscle-ups. Take a quick look at the Pull-Up Guide image to your left to get an idea of the best band for you. Choose a band based on your bodyweight and the current number of unassisted repetitions you can complete. One important thing to remember about using bands for pull-up assistance is that you can secure the band under your feet or under your knee for different levels of assistance.
  • MULTIPLE BANDS: Do you think you need a #4 band, but concerned it may be too much tension? You can purchase multiple smaller bands to equal the tension of heavier bands. Try the #2 & #3 instead of the #5 or try the #3 & #1 instead of the #4 band. Combining multiple sizes gives you more levels of tension because you can use them individually or you can use them at the same time.

Break through the pull-up barrier by adding bands.

Secure the band under your foot for one level of assistance or under your knee for a different level of assistance.

Keep in mind - to provide the necessary assistance, the band will need to be stretched quite a bit. You may need a box, chair or other stable object to stand on.

Here are a few ways resistance bands can help you in barbell training:


  • Use bands to assist your lifts.  Add bands to assist your squat and bench by looping a pair of bands to the top of a rack or rig to help pull the weight up. This is great for anyone who has hit a plateau with breaking into higher weights. 

  • Use bands to add resistance to your lift. This is typically referred to as speed barbell training.  Simple add bands to the barbell to add resistance. Typically, athletes keep weight around 60% of their one (1) rep max and add in a #1 or #2 band.  (As shown in the pictures to the left)

Bands help stimulate and optimize your muscles with eccentric and concentric tension that is always changing.

**Bands are sold individually. You will need to purchase two units if doing barbell training**
