HOME GYM PART 2: FULL BODY RESISTANCE BAND WORKOUT

Updated: Jul 31, 2021

This full body resistance band workout consists of ten exercises that can be performed one after the other in a circuit training format. Our target is to repeat this entire circuit ten times.


1. Shoulder Press:

(Target Area: Shoulders / 10 Repetitions)

Stand upright with feet one shoulder width apart. Anchor the resistance band under both feet. Holding firmly the resistance band, push arms straight upwards until your elbow straightens out and then lower back to starting position. This completes one repetition. Make sure that the you lower your arms slower than you push them up, as this will optimize the strength requirements of this exercise.


2.Front Raises:

(Target Area: Shoulders / 10 Repetitions Each Arm)

Stand upright with feet two shoulder width apart. The increased gap between your feet will make the resistance band taut enough for performing the exercise properly. Anchor the resistance band under both feet. Holding the resistance band firmly, raise your arm up in front till your shoulder height. Keep the elbows straight during the lifting movement. Lower down the arm back to starting position and repeat 10 times. Then transfer the resistance band to the other hand and repeat the exercise 10 times with the other arm. This completes one set. Make sure that you lower your arm slower than you raise it, as this will optimize the strength requirements of this exercise.


3. Bicep Curls:

(Target Area: Biceps / 10 Repetitions)

Stand upright with feet one shoulder width apart. Anchor the resistance band under both feet. Holding firmly the resistance band, curl both arms upwards from the elbow and then lower them back to starting position. Make sure that you lower your arms slower than you curl them in, as this will ensure that you are working against the tension of the resistance band. This will optimize the effect of the exercise.
