Reasons Why Our Bands Could Snap:

Yes, our bands incorporate Snap Reduction Technology. However, that does not mean that they are snap proof. Below you will find reasons why our bands may snap, (it is rare) and how you can prevent snaps from occuring.

Reason# 1: Sawing

Never use your band like a pulley.
Sawing is when you thread your bands through a door anchor and then alternate pulling side to side (similar to a pulley system). The side to side pulling action creates friction between the band and the anchor which creates heat. How much heat? With good force and speed side to side you could literally melt the band and the anchor.

Prevention Tip: If you want to perform exercises with side to side pulling, it is recommended that you loop the band once more through the anchor, making a loop. This loop will create a simple knot which will prevent movement.

Reason# 2: Wrapping Around Hard Objects

Rubber must be in contact with other soft surfaces.
Elastic band training is super convenient, you can use them almost anywhere. It seems logical to simply anchor your bands around a pole or tree outside when you don't have access to a door. However, this can definitely damage your bands. Elastic bands are made from latex, which is a soft material. What happens when you create a great amount of force between a soft and hard object? You damage the soft object.

Prevention Tip: To avoid damaging your bands it is recommended that you use a special band anchor with a soft inner surface.

Reason# 3: Threading Through Rings/Fences

Fences and rings act like a knife to elastic bands.
Anchoring your bands to a stationary object will enable you to perform exponentially more exercises. Best of all, there are anchors everywhere in everyday life, right? Unfortunately many of these "anchors" come with a price, and should be avoided. A good example are eye hooks and wires of fencing. If you thread your band through these and pull, they actually act like knives against the latex.

Prevention Tip: For these types of objects be sure to attach a band "safe" anchor to the object and then thread your band(s) through that.

Reason# 4: Overstretching For More Tension

Over-Stretching the band will cause tears.
As you probably know, bands create more resistance as you stretch them. In fact, bands have a limit to their elasticity. Bodylastics bands prevent you from over-stretching them due to the tough inner cord. However, if you stretch them to their limit and pull against the fully elongated inner cord you will create tears at the point of connection.

Prevention Tip: In order to prevent tears with the inner cord, never push/pull against the inner cord for more resistance, simply add another band or use one that has more resistance.

Reason# 5: Storing Your Bands Improperly

Latex is a natural product you must store it properly.
Most Latex tubes are made from Natural Latex. Natural latex comes from a living plant. Latex contains moisture, (this is what keeps it stretchy) just like many other substances from nature. If you leave your resistance bands in direct sunlight or in hot dry conditions, the latex can become brittle and even crumbly. When you stretch a band that has become dry, it will easily snap.

Prevention Tip: Keep your bands inside in a temperature regulated environment, but not in the path of a fan or blowing air. Even if you do not keep your bands in dry conditions, they will last considerably longer if you keep them conditioned and lubricated. Great lubricants for bands usually contain silicone and some polymers.
