Workout Wednesday – Resistance is Futile

Resistance is Futile Workout

I’m extremely excited about today’s workout that I’m featuring on here today.  All of the exercises require resistance bands (except the jumping jacks) so it will help take your workout to the next level without needing hand weights.

 

This week’s playlist is an eclectic mix but banging none the less and will have you pushing yourself harder during this workout.

Now on to this workout.  This did not include any hand weights and was solely body weight exercises so that was refreshing.  You can do this at home or in the gym so branch out and challenge yourself.  You won’t regret it.

Equipment needed:

Resistance is Futile Workout

Print Here —>Resistance is Futile Workout

  • Squats and shoulder press:  stand on the resistance band evenly and place a handle in each hand to create the resistance
  • Standing bicep curls:  stand on the resistance band evenly and place a handle in each hand to create the resistance
  • Push ups to mountain climbers:  get in push up position and place resistance band across back and under your hands to create the resistance
  • Tricep extensions:  stand on one end of the resistance band and place handle in your hand to create the resistance
  • Lateral raise to front raise:  stand on the resistance band evenly and place a handle in each hand to create the resistance
  • Seated rows:  while seated place resistance band around bottoms of your feet to create the resistance

Let me share with you a little more about the Aurorae Resistance Bands that are featured with this workout.  They come with 5 different resistance level bands:

  • Yellow – 2 to 4 pounds
  • Blue – 4 to 6 pounds
  • Green – 10 to 12 pounds
  • Black – 15 to 20 pounds
  • Red – 25 to 30 pounds

The resistance bands also come with  a nice carrying bag, door anchor, ankle strap, paddle handles, exercise guide.  They are really nice.

    i don’t typically use resistance bands in my own workouts but definitely for things like assisted pull ups. My trainer would sometime use them with me for strengthening exercises.

    I typically love running, but lately at-home strength workouts have been my jam. I cleaned out a small room that we were using as storage and made it a tiny apartment gym. There’s A LOT that can be done from the comfort of your own home!
