Thera-Band bands and tubing are color-coded to identify the level of resistance. The color band or tubing you use depends on the results you want to achieve with your strengthening routine. The lighter resistance levels (tan and yellow) are good for persons in the early stages of rehabilitation. Medium levels of resistance (red and green) are good for those persons starting a strengthening program, or for persons increasing muscular endurance. Higher levels of resistance (blue, black, silver, and gold) are for more advanced exercisers needing more resistance. Consult with an exercise or healthcare professional to determine which resistance is best for you.
