Thanks for the help guys. But I think I'm shit out of luck, unfortunately. I emailed Rip. He said that Marty no longer sells them and linked me that same amazon page.

Thanks.

Your workouts might suck on the days after you only eat 500 cals. It's also probably not the best way to keep your metabolism high (although I admit that's a guess; I don't have any research to back...

Thanks for the video. Could you look at these roll-outs for me and see if I'm doing them correctly?

Also, if my triceps get sore from these, does that indicate I'm doing them incorrectly?

I don't use bands for speed work. I've had better results with straight weight. Most people do use bands, though. It depends on your weaknesses IMO. Try both for yourself and see if you want.
