Damn, that sucks. Does your employer offer anything?
I have BCBS and I haven't had any complaints so far. But I think you should be focusing on the type of coverage you get and not the "brand" so much. Or maybe the extent of coverage is dependent on the brand.
what # band did you get? from where?
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.
Got it from a local Swedish brand.
I got a #3 (it has a resistance of 50 to 70 lbs). It's def too much for squats and benching for me. Might work for pull ups but I don't know.
These things are so damn expensive over here. It cost me 60 bucks.
Probably gonna return it and order some lighter and cheaper ones I just found on Ebay.
Nope, but I am requesting a raise. I am an independent contracter. Gotcha, I see your point.
on the other hand i bet a lot of their clients do not. related: one week at a commercial gym has re-opened my eyes to all the glory and terror that goes on in there. haven't seen any trainer-sanctioned fail yet, though.
