I think it is, because I only lift twice per week and only one of those sessions is heavy. For the same effect without the bands, I would have to do more reps or partial lifts which would be at it's own cost. One wouldn't have to go heavy either but a more linear resistance curve of a lift seems valuable to me. I don't get any DOMS or experience poor sleep or any other symptoms from it either. Toddler crawling into my bed is the only sleep reducer in my lifeI understand that accomodating resistance can be used to make the resistance bigger throughout the range of motion, but is this really desirable?
