can dumbell routines be changesd to band routines?
Help, I want to do strength training at home but all I have are resistance bands. Does anyone know of sites to go to that show similiar wt lifting routines using bands?

Of Course They Can
Of course, it doesn't matter where you get the resistance (tension for bands vs. gravity for dumbells) This site has a ton of routines using bands that are normally done with conventional weights: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/wotw10.htm
My advice to you is to be creative, because theres probably tons of stuff you can do with bands that won't be listed on any particular site. Performing the same motion whether it be with barbells, dumbells or bands is going to workout the same muscles. I know sometimes people will staple the band to their floor or wall, which might make things easier.
