I compete as a strongman, my bf a martial artist and weightlifter. This band has enough resistance to challenge both of us. Additionally, my non-gym roommate was able to use it in a beginning at home routine. It even comes with a few exercises. Most bands slip, but this band even has a ring of nonslip elastic inside to help keep your workouts safer. This is an incredibly effective band and for the price I recommend all levels of athletes add it to their bag. It will be attending my next competition as the perfect warmup tool.
