Total Body Resistance Band Workout – No3
Resistance bands are a great piece of equipment that can give you a challenging workout no matter the fitness level.
Bands can be stored away easily and take up no room at all. They are relatively cheap to buy and are a good way of maintaining strength and endurance.
I have used resistance bands in some shape or form for years now, although I have never gained any mass using them, they still give you a solid workout that can really push you to the limit.
Resistance bands are still a vital edition to any home gym, if you don’t have any, then go get some.
I’m assuming you do already have some and that is the reason you are here! Ha ha!
In the third instalment of my total body resistance band workout series, once again I am using a long band for the routine.
This workout targets all the major muscle groups in the body and will take you 20 minutes to complete.
We do as many controlled reps as possible within a 45 second period, then a 20 second break to rest and prepare for the next exercise.
There are nine exercises in the routine that are all done with a single band with a resistance of between 30-60lb.
However, depending on your level of fitness you can chop and change the resistance band should you choose to do so.
Resistance Bands Versatility
It’s easy to forget what you can do with a single resistance band. This resistance band workout is great for any fitness level.
No matter the resistance, you can squat, hinge, row, push, press and swing through almost any exercise, while getting a heavy sweat on all with one moderate-to-heavy band.
EMOM, or every minute on the minute workouts are a simple and effective way to put in a lot of work in a short amount of time. An EMOM can be performed for any length of time.
This structure allows people to get creative with their workouts and easily scale them to be more difficult as your fitness level increases.
If you’re finding it difficult to get enough rest between exercises in a class, don’t be afraid to decrease the reps or modify the exercise to your fitness level.
