Answer: 
The Strength And Flexibility Kit comes with 3 multi level resistance bands.
Green = light
Blue = medium
Grey = heavy
There is no resistance to pound conversions available. With any resistance band, the amount of perceived exertion or weight lifted will vary based upon where you are holding, and how you are using the band.

I see Ana Caban's pilates kit #05-51840 - are these the same workouts? If not, does this workout cover the entire body or only one aspect? (like upper and abs.) and, is it filmed outdoors? I would like to purchase both if they are indeed different workouts.
Thank you, Tracy

Answer: 
All resistance bands or cords provide a variable resistance, as opposed to constant resistance that free weights (dumbbells) provide.

By nature the variable resistance bands provide a different amount of force depending on how many inches the cable is stretched. The actual force created by the band changes throughout the movement as the band becomes elongated, creating what is called variable resistance. This is why a band rated at 20 lbs. may feel different than using a dumbbell that weighs 20 lbs. With this being said that is why we do not have a weight listing because it isn’t really an accurate conversion.

The bands included are going to range from a similarity to working with a 5 to 10 pound weight on the light resistance, medium resistance is similar to working with a 10 to 15 pound weight, and the heavy is about 15 to 20 pounds. Again those weights aren't really super accurate as there is no actual conversion.

Answer: 
The guide included only has 4 exercises. However these resistance bands will work for any exercise requiring a resistance band. You can find many other work out routines by searching online.
