Hi Eve, great web page on using exercise bands. I use these also and I gained a couple of new exercises to try from viewing your page. I also use the loop bands or mini bands http://www.amazon.com/Exercise-Bands-Resistance-durability-resistance/dp/B00CU60Z2A for leg strengthening. I really like the burn I get from using them. Have you used them before?

I've used the loop bands before, but mostly doing pilates or yoga moves with them. They add extra resistance to add more muscle mass and give extra stretch to my moves.
Thanks for visiting my BLog.
