Paleo, shmaleo. All I know is that it's delicious. Hats off to your wife and her culture because B-BBQ is AWESOME.
Just bought a band for stretches, mobility and some exercises.
It's good length, approx 3 ft in length and 1.5 inches wide, but it's stiff as hell. I thought I'd use it for benching to learn the "rip the bar apart", but it's too long to not be folded and when I fold it in half, it has way to much resistance. Literally cannot stretch it more than an inch or two.
Do these things loosen up? How much resistance do you want?
I might get another band with less resistance and keep this for big stretches, pull ups and the like.
i got my bands from ironwoody and i would only use a #1 or #2 tops to add resistance to upper movements. if you are looking for stretches and mobility i wouldn't want anything more than a #2. it sounds like you have a #3 or #4 which would be mega overkill for your purposes. they do loosen up a little bit but not a whole lot.
