I just bought a new gym membership.  It’s called “Resistance Band”, very very VIP place, I just couldn’t resist (!).

Thanks to this helpful 30-minute workout shown above, I finally know how to use this damn piece of rubber.  I think it cost something like $1. 

And why can’t I invent something like this piece of elastic rubber????????????  I mean COME ON ALEX!
