The blue spring that is installed in the trainer upon arrival is the beginner spring. The gold spring included is an advanced spring used once you have completely mastered each level of tension on the blue spring. We HIGHLY recommend taking the time to move through each level slowly and completely to ensure you have mastered and are using the proper mechanics and are not compromising the health of your arm/body.Where do I put in my coupon code?
