I'm 5'5 and I have no problem with using them. The long bands make it easier to do over head exercises. I often make them taunt by crossing and then stepping on the cross over to provide extra resistance while doing certain exercises.

Any person can use them. A person with shorter arms would not use the hand grips but would hold the bands.
On some of my stretches I use the hand grips and on others I hold the tubes.

answer 10
Ah! Well, I had the same question since I would be sharing them with my 12 year old son who is (for the time being) a little shorter than me. Trust me, he has no problem using them. To shorten (if needed) simply widening your foot stance and/or crossing the straps is plenty enough. I am about 5'6" and my son in about 5'3" and we both use them normally (fit together and not crossed).

Yes, these bands will attach to a door, but there is no special door attachment. The instructions advise: "Some exercises require the Resistance Tube to be secured to a door handle or a securely attached post. When using a door handle to perform an exercise you must wrap the resistance tube around both sides of the handle on both sides of the door. Be sure to center the resistance tube before wrapping it."

answer 3
No specific weight equivalency, just different resistances for all three bands. The fact is that no matter what exercise you are performing, there is always a way to up the resistance of the band you are using. For instance, lets say you are doing a rowing exercise that requires you to attache the band to a door handle or pole, and you want more resistance. You can actually wrap the band a few more times around said handle or pole, and the resistance becomes much stronger for a more intensified workout. Likewise if you are doing something freestanding with the bands, then you can make a loop on the floor with the band and stand on it where the band meets itself. This way you take more slack away and intensify the bands resistance. Using these methods you can make the bands work for just about any strength level you need. Hope this helps.

I think it really depends on a lot of factors, your height, for what exercise you are performing. I'm about 5'6" and with a normal foot stance, doing curls I would say the pink is about 5lbs, blue 8lbs and black 10lbs (just guessing). Of course you can mix the cords together in any combo. Also lifting higher adds more resistance (more weight).

using a "fish/luggage scale

Red band: 8 to 12 pounds
Blue band: 12 to 16 pounds
Black band: 16 to 20 pounds

answer 2
based on other bands i have used and comparing them...my best guess is approx....
black = 10
blue = 5
red = 3
that is pretty close...but you can not really get an equal weight because free weights are not "resistance" meaning they weight 10 pounds from start to finish...the bands only start to equal weight as you perform the movement, so half your movement has no weight and the further the movement, the more the weight. that is why Golds only list it as medium, hard, and very hard resistance. hope this helps.

This is hard to answer as you basically have complete control on their resistance levels. If you want higher resistance, you simply step on the band closer to the grips.
