These sound good for people that aren't able to exercise due to issues that slow them down, great way to work-out!!!

Thanks! I guess I can do exercises at my desk - I work in a call center and I know that's caused some of my weight gain too - being inactive all day.

Resistance bands are cheap, portable and extremely versatile - definitely a great first fitness purchase.

I love resistance bands. I have one that is attached to a bar. It's suppose to be used for
palates. But you can do so much more with it. I can wind the bands around the bar and do bicep curls. Or put it over my head and rest the bar on my neck and do squats and lunges. I got mine at Big 5 but I have seen them at walmart for 20 bucks. I have gotten my monies worth and then some.

Resistance bands are a great way to begin your strength training routine. And they aren't just for beginners. I know body builders who use them as part of their training routine too. I've been using them for years.

Most exercises that a person can do with hand weights can be done with resistance bands. Where to start ? I would start by joining SERGEANTMAJORs resistance band team. He's got a bunch of beginner to advanced routines posted.

Some exercises that you could do with the bands include rows, lateral raises, front raises, shoulder presses, chest presses (you'll need a study post to wrap the bands around to do that), squats with the bands, bicep curls, dead lifts, etc.

NOTE, this trainer is using a circular band. You can do the same things with ones with handles.

Does anyone use them regularly? I have them at home and I need to start slow as far as excercise goes. The resistance bands seem to be an 'easy' way to start.

Any tips, excercises? I know they've got the library on here, but just looking for a little bit more personal input.

Thanks in advance! :)
