I have been using resistance bands in place of weights. I was going to the gym, but it's so much more of a hassle than just setting up in my house. I have a few dumbbells but rarely touch them since getting the bands. They've gotten much better than years ago. I use Bodylastics which seem very well made and make bands so resistant that they'll get a guy in shape.
