Exercises with resistance bands are very simple, they can help you achieve great results and they can also be done anywhere. If you want to have a full-fledged workout, you don’t necessarily need to go to the gym or buy weights: this simple and effective tool will help you develop your muscles by using the force of resistance.
We have tried a short workout with these resistance bands and want to show you the series of exercises that we enjoyed the most. You can choose just a few of them, but in order to achieve the best results, we recommend doing all the exercises.
To clarify: we had 2 resistance bands: one of them as a circle, and the other one that is much longer with free ends. All you really need is a free-end band, but for some exercises you will need to make it into a circle.
1. Leg swings
Fix the band just above the ankles. The tighter the circle, the harder it is to do the exercise.
Legs swings can be done to the sides, forward, and backward. Do 10-15 reps for each leg.
2. Side steps
Starting position: feet shoulder-width apart, the band is on the hips just above the knees. Make a side step and repeat 10-15 times for each leg.
Leave the band in the same position and do regular squats. Do 15-20 reps.
