It only came with one cord that doesn’t actually specify how much resistance it is equivalent too. But never fear, you can always go to Amazon and get a full set…

September Sleep Challenge – Week 1 – Team Sloth

Beck’s Sleep Habits Sorry so late on this. To be honest, I forgot about this challenge completely. Forgot I was supposed to post anything. Forgot about it all.
