    I’ve been thinking about remaking some of my older vids. Are there any videos you guys like to see remade with updated information, going more in-depth, or just making it overall look better (especially the old, low-quality, cringy ones)? Please let me know!

    Resistance is resistance. The resistance of bands is slightly different, but it’s usually no big deal. Bands fail at some point (usually) because they have limited potential for adding resistance but they work fine for most people’s fitness goals. Anti-band iron pumpers would probably be surprised how much stabilizer muscles get worked with bands vs iron. I use them exclusively anymore because I got old and I travel a lot and they fit into a suitcase really easily.

      Turkiyem GayVloks Utrecht Lan do a shoulder press with high resistance bands and then come back and tell me if you think they involve less stabilizer muscles.
      I’ve seen guys under estimate bands and try to do workouts with them only to find they have to use way lighter weight then they normally would. Because their stabilizers are disproportionately weak compared to the larger muscles from only doing free weights

    • Pedro Montalvo says:

      Bands can actually make the stabilizers to work just as effective as free weights. Already proven by a lot of kinesiologists. With bands you can target any mucle in your entire body. Any muscle. The only reason why bands havent replaced free weigths is because people preffer to go to gyms with friends to make workouts less boring (for some reason people get bored easily with bands) and gyms preffer freeweigths because they last a lot logner than resistance bands, so in the long run for a gym its cheaper to buy free weigths than to buy resistance bands. This in turn cause people who go to gyms to get used to free weights, so in turn they prefer free weigths.

    4:50 hold up a minute there, you dont really grow out of lighter bands since you can combine bands together. 4th one is too hard? use any combination of lighter ones.

  4. Julio Chong says:

    Short Answer: For Beginners – Yes. For Advanced – No, for the most part. The recommendation is to combine resistance bands with weights to get proper gainz. IMO, you can get results with resistance bands alone too, just of progressive overload with the bands and the proper excercise that give you a full range like bands + dips, pushups, ring(replaced with bands) bicep curls, tricep extensions over the head, etc.
