Questions about Ripcords®

Can I really get ripped from the Circuit7®?
Absolutely! It is the world champion, Michael McDonald’s personal routine, using the scientifically proven vertical progression technique incorporating every major muscle group in just 7 minutes. And because it’s fast and efficient, it delivers cardio too.
Will I get too bulky with the Ripcords®?
It is often females who ask this question, as they are concerned about becoming overly muscular, because they don’t want to look like a bodybuilder. Well don’t worry; Ripcords® will give you healthy, active muscles with the sleek, sexy tone everyone is after.
Michael McDonald looks like he’s working really fast on T.V. - What if the Circuit7® is too fast for me?
The Circuit7® DVD includes a walkthrough section, which explains and demonstrates all of the exercises at a slower pace. We recommend that you begin with the walkthrough section until you are comfortable with each of the individual exercises. Then, when you are ready, you can move on to the entire full-speed Circuit7® routine.
What’s the difference between the colored bands?
Each band signifies a different thickness, and therefore a different tension. The color system works: Yellow (very light), Orange (light), Green (medium), Red (heavy), Blue (very heavy), and Black (extreme).
How durable are Ripcords® and will they break?
Ripcords® use the strongest tubing possible, and are tested and retested to ensure they last longer than anything on the market. However, Ripcords® are still susceptible to regular wear and tear, much like a pair of shoes. For the average user training with Ripcords® 3 times a week, one cord will generally last approximately 5 years. Ripcords® will eventually break, but they will usually give plenty of warning by beginning to slowly wear out and fray before any actual breakage happens.

But should any cords break within your warranty period, don’t hesitate to contact us for a replacement.

I would like to lose weight, will these Ripcords® achieve weight loss goals?
You will want to order the 4 pack (or 5 pack) so that you have enough resistance to build the lean muscle to increase your metabolism (blue cord in the 4 pack) as well as having the lighter cords to allow her to do the high repetitions to burn extra calories, keep your heart rate elevated and to perform the Circuit7® at the intensity and speed required to maximize total calorie output. In addition to using the cords, she should do jumping jacks, running in the spot, speed walk, jog and also reduce her calorie input for every meal.
