Black Friday and Cyber Monday may now be over, but you can still pick up Cyber Monday resistance bands deals without breaking the bank. For example, the Whatafit Resistance Bands Set has a door anchor, two handles and five bands offering a range of resistances, and it’s now 37% off at Amazon.
The best resistance bands allow you to perform a huge range of exercises, working every muscle in your body with everything from bent-over rows to crab walks. You can even clove hitch looped bands around a bar and use them to perform assisted pull-ups – a great way to build up to the challenging bodyweight movement.

I've always thought that weights were the only way to build muscle, but I changed my mind when I started researching resistance bands vs weights. Unless you're lifting heavy loads, resistance bands can still offer an effective strength workout.
Plus, the money I save by ditching weights can go on other stuff, like my annual subscription to Chris Hemsworth's workout app, Centr. Helpfully, most of the app's routines offer modifications for when you're exercising without weights.
Leaving dumbbells or kettlebells behind won't work for everyone, so if you're after a way to pick up some new muscle-building equipment without breaking the bank, be sure to check out our roundup of all this year's Cyber Monday weights deals.
