5 Resistance-Band Exercises That Will Tone Even the Trickiest Spots
Bodyweight exercises are great, but if you want to ramp up your strength training, it's time to start working out with a resistance band. Resistance bands are inexpensive, and by placing extra tension on your muscles, they help to sculpt areas that are often hard to hit, while increasing your overall strength.
Get started with this routine from Austin Johnson, national personal training manager for Gold's Gym. You'll do 15 reps of each exercise for three rounds, with a 60-second rest in between each round. This circuit hits your triceps, biceps, legs, abs, and butt, making it a total-body toner. And while these moves are demonstrated using a resistance band with handles, any type of resistance band will work.
