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

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs


Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

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!

Current goal:
- 32 by end of April.

39 total by end of May.

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

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. :)
