Those work fine but I prefer those with handles.The ones with handles can be more versatile and easier to use plus they come with graded resistances. I prefer the ones with detachable bands as opposed to those with fixed handles since they allow me to change the resistance of the band for different exercises.


It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

yes- i know a guy that cuts up old bike tires and uses them! personally i prefer ones with handles- i got a set that clips on to various handles so i can change the resistance, attach them to a door, etc. for variety. an old band i had with handles attached broke, so i prefer my new style. if you can try different models out and see what you like best!

It should work fine without the handles!

Yep it'll work the same. Sometimes I choke up on mine and put my hands through the handles and hold farther down on the band anyways :)

Yes, it will work. The handles just make it easier to hold on to. :)
