I'm almost looking to lower my body fat, look for toned and lean etc. I'm not looking to bulk or anything.
Just wondering if anyone else uses one here? I've got no idea what size to get.
Doesn't all training involve any sort of resistance? Kinda useless if it doesn't ..
Regarding resistance bands I can't really see much of a benefit, no progressive overload since you may only have one/one pair, or some progressive overload if you buy multiple ones but not very fine. Also the resistance will change depending on how much you stretch the band and during the movement.
Only benefit I can see is that you can get resistance in a difference way than vertical to the ground, but cable machines let you do that to and with a bench or so you can move your body of the weights movement.
Too lose body fat you should eat less than necessary to keep your current weight, and doing heavy weight training helps since it helps preserve muscle by convincing your body that you actually need it.
I would get a pair of dumbbells instead of resistance bands but that's just me.
If you don't need any progressive load on your body you may just aswell do bodyweight movements.
