How do exercise bands work for strength training?

Strength Training with Bands

Exercise bands are used for strength training. Sometimes called resistance bands, they just use a different kind of resistance. To increase strength, you have to work your muscles against resistance, but the resistance doesn't have to be "iron." Weight machines and free weights are one kind of resistance. With pushups and sit-ups, your body weight is the resistance. Exercise bands just offer a different mode of resistance.
