Safety Sleeve In Action

by | Nov 14, 2018 | Optimize Weekly

The Breaking Point

Your average resistance band is just like a run-of-the-mill rubber band – they’ll stretch to their breaking point and then snap. Think about the amount of force you use while working out. Do you want to worry about your resistance band unexpectedly snapping mid-exercise, or would you prefer the peace of mind of having a fabric sleeve protecting you? As you can see in the video, the forty five-pound weight plate obliterates the regular, no-name resistance band.

No More Snapping

Now look at what happens when the Slastix is used in the same scenario. Due to the Slastix having a sleeve, the inside band has an artificial limit placed on how far it can stretch, preventing it from being overstretched to its breaking point. The safety sleeve supports the full weight of the plate while ensuring the safety of the band and protecting the user from accident or injury.

Slastix + Training Zones

While we don’t recommend using your Slastix to hold forty-five-pound weight plates, like the video, we wanted to demonstrate the strength of our safety sleeve. Stroops recommends using a Training Zone to prevent you from maxing out the sleeve of your Slastix. Together, the Training Zone and safety sleeve on your Slastix will prevent overstretching your resistance band to its max limit.

LONGER LASTING BANDS

Observing these guidelines and best practices will ensure the durability and longevity of your Slastix, while protecting you from injury. We hope that you can see how having a sleeve will protect you from injury and keep you safe while you’re working out. While they may cost more initially than your average naked tubing available, we think these key features make them a great investment for your fitness arsenal.
