Can I adjust the tension on an exercise band?

Adjusting Resistance

Exercise bands give more resistance at the end of the movement when the band is stretched farthest. If you have anchored it at one end you can make the exercise harder by stepping back so the band starts in a more stretched position. If your resistance exercise band is so long it doesn't give you any tension at the beginning of a short-range movement, you can grasp it further from the end to start. So shorten it up, let it lengthen, or anchor it differently to get the resistance you want.
