Dont know why I did not think about this already, but what about Bodylastics bands? Do an internet search for bodylastics. I bought a set for my wife and I to use as needed. A well respected guy on another board has used them quite a bit and found them to be very effective. Thats why I got them. So that my wife could do resistance training whenever she wanted and I could use them when I am out of town or for a changeup. Perfect if you have not lifted for some time or do not have the space needed but want to exercise and build muscle. I think they would be perfect for you.
