Total Body Resistance Band Workout

I love using resistance bands in my workouts because they are inexpensive, easy to store, and you can easily adjust the amount of resistance you need for each exercise. They are also perfect to throw in your suitcase while traveling in case you want to get in a quick workout while away from home.

 

 

 

Here is a resistance band workout that I like to incorporate into my workout routine. I like to bookmark my workout by running or walking a mile. This helps me get warmed up and ready to tackle the bands in the beginning, and loosen up those muscles at the end of the workout. If you are working out with bands in a gym, just hop on the treadmill. If you are at home, hit the pavement!
