Default Resistance bands

Anyone here used, has used resistance bands in your routine[s] ?

Sort of a low cost Bowflex type of thing. Opinions?

I switch back & forth with them & free weight. The bands seem to be a bit easier on my joints.

I know from a good friend that is a PT, he used the normal resistance bands...but then move on to TRX, which is a step further for strength training, and it´s working wonders for all of them. I myself have one wrist that is somewhat useless, and arthritis in that arm, so weight lifting is sometimes painful. I have only tried TRX once, but will do hopefully more.Here is a trx - YouTube video. I don´t know which ones you meant. Good training!!!

I saw a commercial for resistance bands just last night that caught my eye. I'm really tempted to purchase them.

What kind do you have oldlift?
