Do you mean resistance/thera bands? If so, there's a lot you can do.

I've seen Andy Murray warming up with them (at Cincinatti, tied them to the net post) and he just simulated strokes. On top of that, they're a good way to help out your rotator cuffs.

The book "Core Performance" by Mark Verstegan has lots of pics/explanations for this type of stretching.

I was digging through my bookmarks and found a link back from my PT days.
