After years of heavy barbells and dumbbells in the football weight room I still enjoy exercising and lifting BUT in my 40’s and now 50- I do not need great strength or size any more- IN FACT I need to be and stay smaller.
I have done a bunch of body-weight exercises and now enjoying the resistance bands. I get to feel the pull and burn of the workout with out the growth- also I am not spending 2-3 hours, 6 days a week.
Now the bands are helpful for the fun of a workout and are also useful for rehab and recovery of a few injuries i carry around. Shoulder, ankle But the rest is for fun and fitness.
Looking back on football and other lifting for sports- I wish I knew about, or that the bands were more popular(outside of the Training room).
