What are the weight equivalent of X3 resistance bands? #
Before comparing X3 resistance bands to free weights it’s important to understand variable resistance and how X3 is different than free weights .
The resistance forces will vary based on your height as the bands stretch more or less. With X3, results matter more than how heavy you are able to say you lift.
Take a look at some of the forces that can be achieved with X3 (varies by user height and exercise):
- X3 white band: 10–50+ lbs (4.5–23+ kg) as a single loop, then doubled over, 100+ lbs (45+ kg)
- X3 light grey band: 25–80+ lbs (11–36+ kg) as a single loop, then doubled over, 160+ lbs (72+ kg)
- X3 dark grey band: 50–120+ lbs (23–54+ kg) as a single loop, then doubled over, 240+ lbs (109+ kg)
- X3 black band: 60–150+ lbs (27–68+ kg) as a single loop, then doubled over, 300+ lbs (136+ kg)
- X3 Elite band : (sold separately, for those who need it) 110–300+ lbs (50–136+ kg) as a single loop, then doubled over, ** than 600+ lbs** (272+ kg)
Due to the high loads it is unsafe to use X3 resistance bands without the X3 bar and X3 ground plate.

You can purchase X3 directly from the official Jaquish Biomedical store . The X3 Bar system is designed to deliver forces that are far beyond what people would normally handle in a gym environment. This means the bar, plate, and banding have to be able to safely provide and withstand far more force capacity than standard gym equipment is made for.
This higher force provided triggers an effect in the body that is much more powerful than anything you can get from using free weights. This is why, when you look at the before/after photos and testimonials, you see experiences who have gained 20 lbs of muscle in 6 months of starting X3 despite years of failed efforts with free weights. X3 is an extremely high quality, made in the USA, product that is a scientifically superior approach to exercise. Ask yourself this: What is 20 lbs of muscle worth?
In total, the X3 complete home gym costs $549.00 USD (plus local tax) and offers resistance of 10 pounds to more than 300 pounds.
