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.

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. :)
