My bands arrived yesterday. They feel incredibly tight. I was initially concerned that they were too strong because I could barely stretch them out with my hands, but they worked great when I tried them out today on the bench. I was actually doing RE incline today, but afterwards, I tried them out on the flat bench with just the bar for the sake of trying out the set-up. This old guy I always see at the gym, Roger (he was the cameraman for my bench press video) was asking me about how they work.
