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:

Band Colour Slack taken (2″ Stretch) Top of Pull-Up (24″) Bottom of Pull-Up (42″)
Orange 4kg 5.5kg 7kg
Red 7kg 10kg 12kg
Black 11kg 17kg 21kg
Purple 15kg 23kg 29kg
Green 24kg 36kg 44kg
Blue 34kg 53kg 63kg

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.

Deadlifting with Bands (as per picture):

Band Colour Deadlift Lockout At Knee
Orange 17kg 10kg
Red 31kg 19kg
Black 50kg 32kg
Purple 71kg 44kg
Green 109kg 68kg
Blue 160kg 100kg

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.

Band Colour Top of Squat (Approx 38″ Stretch) Bottom of Squat (Approx 2″ Stretch)
2 x Orange 13kg 8kg
2 x Red 24kg 14kg
2 x Black 40kg 22kg
2 x Purple 55kg 31kg
2 x Green 85kg 47kg
2 x Blue 122kg 69kg

 Great when used with our resistance band pegs (as per picture)
