Irresistible Workout: Resistance Bands

Come Mondays, I always need an extra boost to get back in my groove. Sometimes, coffee works. Other times, a solid sweat session makes me feel on top of the world again.

I’m a huuuuge fan of resistance bands. My trainer got me hooked, and I use them for full-body workouts. For now — let’s talk ARMS! Typically, I focus on arms 1-2x a week. You can do the exercises from anywhere — even your office. Purchase bands HERE [I recommend light-to-medium resistance]. Scroll to see each exercise AND for a promotional code with FabFitFun!


Do three sets of 15 reps for each exercise, and 1-minute of high-knee jumps between each round.


Begin in a standing position, with your feet a few inches apart. Tuck the band under your shoes, and pull up and toward your body. Keep your elbows tucked close to your sides.


Remain in the same standing position — this time, pulling up and away from your body, while squatting at a 90-degree angle.


Begin in a standing position with your feet together. Fold your band in half, tucking it under one shoe. Pull up and toward your body. Do 15 reps on each side.


Sit on a mat, with your feet extended straight. Wrap the band under the soles of your shoes, and pull directly back [keep your arms tucked close to your body].
