FITNESS 4-1-1 From The Belly Dance Studio: Elastic Bands Pack More Punch Than You Think!

Question: What increases strength more: Weight Machines, Free Weights or Resistance Bands?

Researchers reported in the International Journal Sports Medicine, 31: 810-817, 2010, that Elastic Bands work just as well as their expensive counterparts.  Their study found that women had equal increases in strength (upright rowing, squats, back extensions) as women participating in resistance exercise programs using elastic bands as opposed to free weights or machines.
