Slastix Vs The Elements

by | Feb 27, 2019 | Optimize Weekly

Training Without Limits

You can train with Slastix anywhere including outdoors. Here are a few quick tips to keep your Slastix (or ALL Stroops Resistance Bands) safe when workout out in the elements.

Extreme Heat

The Sleeve on Slastix resistance bands protects the elastic inside from any sun rot. You have most likely seen an old tire that has been out in the sun for far too long. It gets cracked and discolored, that is because the UV rays from the sun can damage rubber including resistance bands. You don’t have to worry about sun rot with Slastix, but you want to avoid leaving your Slastix in extreme heat. The stretch properties can change, becoming “more stretchy” or loose after being exposed to extreme heat for a prolonged period of time. If your Slastix do become overheated, give them a chance to return to room temperature before use.

Extreme Cold

Prolong exposure to extreme cold is also something to avoid before using your Slastix. Just like a muscle needs warmed up before intense exercise, if your Slastix are extremely cold, they become more stiff and immediate use can lead to a potential snap. It is always best to bring your Slastix back to a normal temperature before hitting your workout.

Water Usage

The last of the like elements you will encounter when training with Slastix is water. Training with Slastix in water will not damage the resistance bands our impede your workout. The most important thing to do after training in water is to dry of the metal clips at the end of your Slastix to avoid any rusting.

Now get out there and train in your favorite places and use these tips to keep your Slastix safe!
