Micro Mini Resistance Band

The orange micro mini resistance band is a great band for warming up joints, rehabbing injuries and for general mobility work. There are also a few options for strength work like squats, deadlifts as well as for pull ups and dips for more advanced athletes.

  • 2080mm x 6.35mm x 6.35mm (2.08m or 41″ is the standard gym band length)
  • Resistance of approximately 7kg per band

Mobility

You can use the micro mini resistance band for a wide variety of mobility work:

  • Rotator Cuff work – internal rotation, external rotation, abduction – can all be performed when the band is anchored.
  • Scapular stability – either use one band tied to a squat rack or rig and work on your scapular stability and activation.
  • Deltoids – Side raises, front raises and band ‘dislocates’ can be performed to rehab shoulders and keep them working optimally.
  • Triceps – very light for ‘skull crushers’

Bodyweight Exercises

The micro mini resistance band will offer some very light resistance if you can anchor them to the floor for weighted pull ups.

If you are new to pull ups they will offer a small amount of assistance. Essentially they’ll take around 5-10kg of your bodyweight (decreasing the closer you get to the top of your pull up)

When using a band for a pull-up the band will be stretched to approx 42″ when at the bottom of the pull-up and still be stretched to around 24″ at top of pull-up (Figures for athlete who’s approx 5ft 7″ – taller athletes will stretch band further). Given that the table below gives an approximation of how much weight the band will take from your body when used to assist with pull-up training:

Red7kg10kg12kg
Black11kg17kg21kg
Purple15kg23kg29kg
Green24kg36kg44kg
Blue34kg53kg63kg

Strength Work

The micro mini resistance bands are quite thin so strength work is limited. You can attach to a bar for deadlifts as shown in the picture (you will need to stand on the band when deadlifting). The resistance you get will depend on how tall you are (the taller you are, the more stretch/resistance). The tension will kick in from just below the knee (depending on band colour) and reach maximum at lockout (the closer you get to lockout the more resistance you will feel), so good for use when working on deadlift lockout training. The weights below are a guide to give you an idea.

Orange17kg10kg
Red31kg19kg
Black50kg32kg
Purple71kg44kg
Green109kg68kg
Blue160kg100kg

Squatting with Bands Tension:

The bands only offer a small amount of resistance when squatting, consequently you may want to look at thicker bands. A typical range for accommodating resistance is 50-60% of your 1RM in plate weights plus 25% in band tension. If you squat 200kg you’d put 100kg on the bar and add 50kg worth of bands. This is just a guide. Please read up on accommodating resistance for sets and reps, though 10-12 sets of 2 are quite common. Bands will be stretched approx 38″ for a 5ft 10″ lifter. Make sure that bands are still under tension at bottom of squat. You can loop a bit extra of the band around the bar if it’s not under tension at the bottom, or you want to add a few more kilos of resistance.

The weights below are a guide to give you an idea.

RETURNS & REFUNDS

We want you to be completely satisfied with your order. It is important to us that you are delighted with your purchase but if for any reason you are not, and feel the need to send the item back, we offer a 35 DAY returns policy, starting from the date of  order. If you are not happy or you need to change something, the easiest thing to do is to email us so that we both have a record of it. The delivery slip will have information about returning for an exchange or refund on the back (a short form asking you to write 1-2 words in a box). We are happy to exchange any item for you at no extra charge for UK customers (you will need to cover postage of item sent back to us). Overseas customers will need to pay for postage of the replacement item. If an item is damaged or the wrong item was sent we will usually cover return postage.

For a refund you will need to return your order to us within 35 days of making your order (5 weeks). After this time you will no longer be eligible for a refund. We aim to process your refund the same week it arrives back with us. Items being returned for a refund will need to be returned in new condition and with the original packaging.

Items are returned at your own cost. We would recommend UK customers sending 2nd class. Please note returning an order is at your cost so it is up to you to decide which service you opt for. If the item fails to arrive with us again that is for you to take up with Royal Mail. We are not responsible for lost returns. Please ensure that you do not return an item without a note inside with your name and order number, as we won’t be able to ascertain who the order is from without this.

If you qualified for free or reduced rate shipping and you part return your order your order will be recalculated to see if you still qualify for free shipping. If when returning an item your order is below the free / reduced rate shipping threshold, this will be deducted from your refund.

For example:

If you ordered a weightlifting belt at £29.99 and knee sleeves at £29.99 your order would come to £59.98. If you choose free shipping (Royal Mail 48 Tracked) and you returned the belt for a refund your order would be recalculated as: Knee Sleeves (£29.99) + Shipping (£3.95), as the knee sleeves are below the free shipping threshold. Your new order would be £33.94, so a refund of £59.98 – £33.94 would be issued (£26.04).

If you ordered on our 3 for 2 deal, or buy 1 get 2nd at 20% off and you part return your order your order will be recalculated as if it was a new order as above, with the refund being the difference between the original order and the new order.
