I recently purchased some resistance bands for my home workouts, and I can’t believe it took me this long to buy some! Today I’m showing you the total resistance band workout. If you are like a lot of people, you had no idea there were so many exercises you could do with these bands! You can get them here, and they’re not expensive at all. There are 4 different bands and 4 different strengths. The science behind resistance bands is that it adds intensity to any exercise. I also have the smaller resistance bands like these, that are more convenient, for example, to travel with. I use them mostly for a few arm exercises, squats, hip thrusts and lateral leg pulses. One thing that I’d love to have at my house is a pull-up bar. Perhaps I’ll have to put that on the “honey-do” list for my husband, along with the TRX when I get one for the house! Then he won’t have any excuses that he can’t make it to the gym during the week, AM I RIGHT?
The Total Resistance Band Workout
So with these exercises, you can choose which strength band to use(the red is the easiest resistance). Dont worry, they are not going to break….Unless you might be 7 ft tall. When you do a pull-up, you can hook the band under one of your feet for added assistance. These are wonderful for anyone learning to do pull-ups! I typically like to do at least 3 sets of 12-15 reps, however I am trying to lean out a bit and have raised my reps to at least 20.
