Can resistance bands build muscle just as effectively as free weights?

Not only can resistance bands build muscle just like traditional weights, they even have some advantages over free weights, other than just being portable. Unlike free weights where the level of resistance is fixed throughout an exercise, resistance bands create Linear Variable Resistance (LVR), meaning that the more you stretch them, the more resistance they create. This variable resistance more closely matches the natural strength curve of your muscles, where you are typically weaker at the start of a movement and stronger toward the end. This allows for stronger peak contractions, and therefore more potential muscle growth.
