You can make your exercise band workout better by increasing or decreasing the difficulty when needed. You can do this by your choice of band, your grip on the band, or your choice of exercise. Another way to make an exercise harder is to slow down. Exercise bands work your muscles in both contraction and lengthening. That means you should resist the motion and return the band slowly to its resting length. You can do your exercises rapidly, but this will give you more muscular endurance than strength.
