JFSinIL Posted January 27, 2012 Share Posted January 27, 2012 I have some barbell free weights (3,5,8,10, 12 and 15 lb...plus more on order (a 40-lb dumbbell set : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VCDXNS/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details ). I have the book recommended here New Rules for Lifting for Women. I need to get some resistance bands - I would think that as a shortie (5'1") I would prefer the elastic band things that you can grab where ever you need to, not the cord-type with attached handles, right? Is there one brand better than another? I have visions of messing up and sending myself ricocheting across the room like a pebble from a slingshot ;) so tell me what I want. I have no money or time to go to a gym, and not much money and no space for any equipment beyond weights etc. that can line up next to the wall. I am trying to replicate as many of the exercises in the Lifting book as possible at home. I am 35 lbs down in five months by watching what I eat and exercising like a maniac (mostly boxercising with various wii stuff) and need to move more into strength training stuff now for the last 25 pounds.
