Getting in your daily workout doesn't mean you need to carve out time for the gym. You can workout anywhere- at home, work, school- as long as you have the motivation and the right tools. Resistance bands are a great workout tool to have on hand because they are easy to store and can be used for multiple exercises that target every muscle group in the body. Here are four resistance band workouts you can try just about anywhere.
1. Standing Bicep Curl
Tone those arms up with this simple yet effective bicep curl. Stand on top of the band with your feet shoulder-width apart. With a handle in each hand, place your arms at your sides. Turn your hands palm-side up while gripping the handles of the band and pull up towards your biceps, bending at the elbow. Once you feel your bicep muscle contract, slowly lower the band back down. Repeat this move 15-20 times.
2. Side Step Band Walk
In this exercise, loop bands help workout the entire leg. Step into the band and place the feet shoulder-width apart with the band sitting at your ankles. Squat halfway and begin stepping to one side, keeping the band tight. Moving the legs in tandem, keep stepping until you reach the count of five then walk in the opposite direction. Perform 5 repetitions on each side.
3. Lower Abdominal Crunch
Work on that six pack with this intense lower abdominal crunch. To start, loop the band around a solid surface, like a desk or column. Lie down on the floor with your knees bent and the band wrapped around the tops of your feet. Move backward to tighten the band and then pull your knees towards your chest until you feel the abdominal muscles contract. Slowly lower the legs back down. Repeat this move 15-20 times.
4. Lying Down Clamshell
Get those glutes in shape with this effective move. Lie on your back with your knees at a 90 degree angle, looping a band around your knees. Slowly pull your knees away from each other until you feel your glutes contract. Return the knees to their starting position. Repeat this move 10-15 times.
