My oh my I cut the workout SHORT this week! The weekly workout video is above, so watch it here or head over to my YouTube channel (don’t forget to subscribe!) and maybe eventually facebook if I ever get around to my to-do list. I have a bumper week ahead too so I better get my fingers glued to the keyboard and get some blog posts prepped for when we go on vacation 😉
So first up is SQUATS. This is a total body resistance band workout so why not start with legs. Get the blood pumping straight off the bat. Band is under the feet and one handle in each hand at the hips. Sit into the squat. Remember the key to the bands is to NOT let them pull you, control it! 15 reps.
This workout is shoulder heavy because I’m rehabbing an injury so lets do OVERHEAD PRESS next. With the handles in each hand, step one foot on top of the band, step the other foot forward. With the hands at the shoulders reach the hands overhead. 15 reps to finish the set.
Abs are easy with these bands, so let’s do a standing OBLIQUE TWIST. This time you’re going to put both ends of ONE band on to ONE handle, step on the band with one foot. Bring the handle to the chest and grab a hold with both hands, elbows out. Step the other leg out the side and rotate the torso. 15 reps.
Arms, and some BICEP CURLS. Enough said right? We can all curl bro! You could load up the resistance bands here for more gun work. 15 reps.
Shoulders again with a LATERAL RAISE. Step one foot on the band, handles by the sides and raise the arms level with the shoulders. 15 reps.
Working the back can be tricky with a home workout so these bands can come in really handy for a BENT OVER ROW. Wrap the tubing around the feet then hinge at the hips leaning the chest forward, keeping the back flat. Pull the elbows back, opening through the chest and squeezing shoulders together. 15 reps.
We did biceps so time for TRICEP EXTENSION. Stand on one handle and take the other handle in both hands behind the head, elbows high. Keeping the elbows up and biceps by the ears extend the arms up overhead. Control on the release! 15 reps.
More workouts every Wednesday!
