    I used resistance bands for PT after experiencing some tendonitis in my shoulder, and have wanted to do more ... now I have some moves for my whole body. :) Thanks, Nancy! - 8/11/2010   2:32:52 PM

    I'm not a fan of resistance bands normally but they're great for recovery. I have a: "40lb" and "50lb" version. When I use free weights, I rarely go above 48lb (combined, 24lb each hand) for lower body but after injuring my rotator cuff, I had to do physical therapy moves w/o any weight! So, when I started getting back, it was easiest to use the 40lb band for upper body. The varying resistance was easy to manage. - 8/11/2010   2:28:26 PM
    I have a workout band that came with my wii sports active. I feel inspired to use it for other exercises now! - 8/11/2010   1:59:31 PM
