Great post, very informative. I've had a band for years and only used it for stretching, these are the first exercise that actually work for me with the band.

Depending on how flexible your hamstrings are right now, this may or may not help.

To stretch your hamstrings with a theraband, lay on you back with one leg straight on the floor, the other straight in the air, perpendicular to the ground. Wrap the theraband around your heel/foot and grab the ends together. Use the theraband to pull your leg closer to your head, keeping the knee straight. You might already do this stretch normally just with your arms pulling the leg. It helps some people to use a theraband, but others think its easier without it.

I saw somewhere in here that the two bands the gaynor minden package comes with are lower resistance level bands, but was the book worth it to any of you starting out? I.e. knowing that the two bands are lower resistance, is it still worth it to start out with the package to get the book, knowing that you'll have to buy a higher resistance band at some point?

I finally found a place with medical supplies and found them, but they only sell the whole roll, which is too much or you can ask the size you want. How long should I get?

Awesome. Thank you so much for posting this information. I'm not a dancer but I do practice a Korean kicking-centric martial art. I'm going to apply these principles to my training. Cheers.

Discountdance.com has the Bunheads therabands. But if you don't want to order it online, some dance stores and most walmarts and targets carry them. Usually though, if you get them from a walmart or target, they come in fitness kits along with a pilates ball or workout dvds or something of the sort. I got three in a Reebox fitness set, each was a different strength, but I found only the heavy one was strong enough.

i bought a few hundred feet (all different kinds) off of ebay for very cheap. i just searched under theraband and it popped up. took me a bit to find the big rolls of it and in the strengths i wanted (at least a roll of 100 feet each.)
