What does maxing out mean? I have some Theraband Gold. and I just took one band cut 11/4 inch wide 8 inches long and tried to pull it until it broke and I could not do it. There is a definite point where it gets WAY harder to pull but it will continue to stretch. to my uneducated slingshot mind "maxing out" would be the point at which the band is on the verge of breaking... I can't imagine having the horse power to pull two of these bands to the breaking point and still being able to pinch the pouch.
