Could anyone that have replaced their resistance band in EA sports active 2 give me some tips please. I was thinking that weights might be better to use or am I wrong? If possbile could you please post some links on replacements bands (different to ea ones) or weights and what works best.
Its the difference between burning calories and gaining muscle.
TheResistancebands will will primarily work at keeping you sweating, unless you use heavy resistence ones.
If you are looking to mainly gain muscle, than i would get a pair of weights from either 10-25 depending on your (strength level) for theseexercises.
I have norecommendationsfor a brand of weights. My onlyrecommendationis going down to your local sports shop and buy a pair of used weights that dont hurt your hands (Some old weights have brutal grips).
Even if you dont want to do them with EA sports active, a nice set of dumbbells around the house will allow you to do many moreexercises,and complement your EA sports workouts nicely.
It's not true that resistence bands don't gain you muscle. Perhaps they don't work as fast as conventional weights but with the right resistence they work great and you have ALOT less chance of injuring yourself.
