    Re: Resistance training good?

    bands are simply not going to give you enough resistance compared to weight training at a gym setting

    that is why i laugh when I paid some 'doctor' $90 for a session of physical therapy and he had me do band work as if that would do anything for me but waste my time when i was pulling 150 pounds at the gym

    They have their place for some people.
    For example, some people can't do a single pull-up so you can use those at the beginning to lighten yourself up until you can perform them without help.

    In some exercises like deadlifts you can use bands to accommodate the resistance curve.

    I am a big fan of switching things up so dont use them all the time but nothing wrong with working them in.
