Are exercises done with rubber resistance bands as effective as weights?
Q: I am thinking of doing exercises using rubber resistance bands. I can't use the weights as I don't have the space at my place. I want to know whether rubber resistance bands are effective for muscle building? What could be the disadvantages as compared to weight training?
A:Resistance bands are as effective as weights for training the muscular system in the body. They are not harmful if used correctly, using good form, technique and slow speed. They also allow for creatively working your body! So theres a bonus!
