I'm not sure if i'm posting this in the right place, so feel free to move it.


I am wondering about therabands. Are they o.k. for kids to use? They come in (at least) three strengths; is it best to start with the lightest? Do they include instructions for use? Thanks!

I think they are okay as long as they are shown how to use them. The teacher should do that with the young ones. And yes, I would start with the weaker bands at that age. The Gaynor Minden package has light weight bands and an instruction booklet.

No, they really do not provide the same resistance at all.

Not enough, but also a different kind of resistance, I would think. I have never tried it with tights, but even though they stretch, I just don't think it would be the same at all. I could be wrong.
