FAQ – Shoulder
Which cords should I use?
Which level is best for me?
Our packages are grouped into three resistance levels:
- Novice: for athletes between the ages 8-13 (also a great package for anyone rehabbing from a shoulder injury)
- Athletic: for High School athletes and the typical Adult (Functional fitness athletes generally go for athletic if not RX’ing frequently)
- Elite: for College and Pro Athletes (Functional fitness athletes who Rx all workouts fit well into the Elite level)
My cord broke. What should I do?
At Crossover Symmetry, we manufacture the highest quality resistance bands on the market. If for some reason you experience a break or a tear, and you’ve purchased your gear in the last 2 years, we’ll send you a brand new replacement free of charge. Email a picture of your broken cord to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, address, phone number and a brief description of what happened we’ll be glad to send you a replacement.
How often should I do the Strength program?
In every sport, your workload changes between in season and off season. Minor adjustments are necessary to accommodate integration of the Strength program into your routine. We don’t suggest using the Strength program prior to any game or exercise. Strength should be done 3 days a week after your heavy workloads. Example: Longtoss, Pitching practice, and for functional fitness, your Oly movement days. Take a look at our sport specific implementation tables as a visual aid.
Should I use Crossover Symmetry everyday?
The activation phase should be performed daily prior to any sport activity. It is the most important phase of the System and will have the most profound impact on injury prevention and performance enhancement. Once mastered, this program should take around three minutes to complete, making it an ideal protocol to activate the essential structures of the shoulder complex.
When should I use Activation +?
For normal healthy athletes, once you have mastered Activation, it is time to move to Activation+. Start by doing Activation+ in place of Activation once or twice a week, and work up to doing Activation+ the majority of the time.
When should I use Recovery?
The Recovery phase should be used by athletes with persistent shoulder problems post WOD or practice/game. It is also effective following heavy workloads or the last event of a multi-day competition. The Recovery phase utilizes eccentric, or negative muscle contractions, which have been shown to be beneficial when treating chronic overuse injuries. The Recovery phase increases targeted blood flow to tendons and muscles to speed up the body’s healing processes. Here are a few examples of when to use our recovery program with varying programming emphases:
How much wall space do I need for a Wall Pack/ Armory?
You will need approximately 4 feet of space between the wall mounts (a little less or more is fine) for each station. This works well because studs commonly have 16” of spacing. Leaving a 16” gap between each station eliminates any wingspan overlap generally but a few inches less or more won’t hurt. We recommend finding out how many wall stations you can fit into the dimensions of your facility. Once you have that number, you can look at utilizing your squat racks or pull up rigs for additional stations. Included with every set of wall mounts are our installation instructions. If you have any questions, please contact us at 303-403-0126 & we would be happy to answer them for you.

Understanding the Value vs. Cost of the System?
It’s simple. When shopping for a product that’s going to keep you healthy and strong do you want gear that’s made of cheap material or strong material? Do you want gear that’s been made in a rush that could potentially break and hurt you? At Crossover symmetry we don’t want you to be limited by faulty or inefficient gear, which is why we take the time to develop the most functional, structured, and efficient products possible. But with that comes expenses, Research/Development, shipping/handling, and domestic manufacturing are all accounted for in the cost of our gear and education.
