Easy to use, compact and extremely versatile, a set of resistance bands is all you need for a fantastic full-body workout at home without crowding your lounge with equipment.
If you're looking for exercises you can do on holiday or you want to try something new, try the 10 exercises we're going to go through below, we promise you'll get a sweat on.
MuscleSquad resistance bands come in 3 different strengths, so that you can try different thicknesses to challenge yourself throughout the workout.
We suggest completing 15-20 repetitions of each exercise and 3-4 rounds of the circuit, resting as and when you need to (up to one minute) without letting your heart rate come down between sets.
3D Pull Aparts
Targets: Shoulders and back
Brace your core and keep the motion slow and controlled.
Brace your core and make sure you're not leaning to one side when performing the movement.
Bent Over Row
Keep your back straight and draw your shoulder blades together.
Targets: Chest and Triceps
Drop down to your knees or perform the push up without the band if you need to.
Targets: Legs and Glutes
For more of a challenge, pause at the bottom of each squat for a second or two.
Targets: Glutes, Hamstrings and Lower Back
Squeeze your bum at the top of each movement to really feel this in your glutes.
Brace your core and keep the movement controlled, try not to swing your body.
Targets: Back and shoulders
Your hands should be just below the level of your shoulders, squeeze your shoulder blades together with each movement.
Loop the band under a piece of furniture or have a family member hold it. Try not to arch your back.
Have a family member hold down the ends of the band if needed, we don't want them pinging out from under your heels.
