Do you use them for strength training? How do you like using them compared to weights?

I have a few bands---but I don't really like using them as much as the weights. I have weights up to 20 lbs. I want to get weights up to 30, maybe 35 lbs. I have a dvd set called ChaLean Extreme where you can incorporate bands or heavy weights, and I always use the heavy weights. For some reason I always feel like I work out harder with my weights....

I don't have any but I used them in my post-pregnancy fitness class and loved them. I planned to buy a set to work with and haven't found any I like yet.

I have some bands that I use from time to time. They are just bands (no handles) so it can be difficult to hold them and still get the right resistance. Generally I like free weights better. But bands were great when I was working nights; I kept one in my bag and could do a quick series of exercises when it was quiet!

I have a set but I rarely use them, I prefer weights. The only time I use them much is if I need to for a video. *

I have some bands that I use with some of my videos. I prefer weights if I have the choice though.

I have used them before and I think if they are good, they can work but Kelly bought some for us at the Goodwill recently and they are pathetic. I'll probably never use them.
