I use single arm 14" bars with about 30 lbs on each for squats sometimes. Grab one in each hand and rest them at your sides while doing squats and also lunges. Low weights and high reps works for my needs.

Nope, not at that level of motivation where I'm doing cardio; just lifting until I cant and repeat. Thought about getting a bike.

How much weight do you have?

@Grindy what sort of things are you doing with your bands? Do you have a list or site or anything?
In my current program I do the following band exercises:
Single Leg Curls for hamstrings
Push-Down for triceps
Flies and Cross-overs for chest, the latter especially for lower chest.
Face-Pulls for rear delts and upper back
Wood Chops and Pallof Press for core/obliques
Seated Hip Abduction for glute medius

I mostly do heavier and/or compound exercises with dumbbells and barbells and some isolation with bands afterwards.
Don't really have a list or site, my main ressource is Youtube. All I do is pretty basic anyway, although probably more often done with cables/machines.

I've been doing some higher intensity cardio a few months back. Not nearly hard enough to be considered HIIT or something like that but a program where you are dying after 8 to 10 minutes. Had some burpees in there as well. Brutal stuff.
I'm pretty happy with my body fat percentage lately so I kinda stopped doing it. I'm usually destroyed from my almost daily weight training anyway. Might take it up at some point again, it is pretty damn good for you after all.
