Three of the most popular and effective resistance band exercises possible

Let’s face it, when it comes to health and fitness, working out is one of the most beneficial pastimes you can ever engage in. Whether it’s cardio, weight and resistance training, sports, athletics, swimming, or anything else for that matter, providing it gets your heart rate up and causes you to break a sweat, there’s a good chance that it’s doing your body good.

Resistance bands

Workout at home? When it comes to working out however, not everybody has the luxury of being able to go to the gym or fitness centre several times a week, as they may have work and family commitments to prioritize first. For this reason, more and more people are now working out at home, which is why resistance bands exercises are becoming more and more popular. Resistance exercise bands allow people to get a resistance based exercise, pretty much anywhere in the world. Resistance bands are ideal for use at home, at work, in hotels, or anywhere else for that matter. Here we’ll be taking a look at three exercises using resistance bands, and explaining how they’re performed.

Standing shoulder press – Not surprisingly, this resistance bands exercise works your shoulders. What we love about it however, is that it’s incredibly easy to perform:

  • Begin by taking your resistance bands, and grabbing one handle with each hand
  • Next, place your foot firmly on the centre of the band, so that it is firmly planted to the ground.
  • Start with your palms level with your ears, and then extend both arms upwards at the same time, extending them fully until they almost meet in the middle.
  • Slowly lower then back down to the starting position and repeat as necessary.
  • You should begin to feel a deep stretch in your shoulders after 8 reps or so.

Biceps curlsResistance exercise bands are also ideal for working your biceps, allowing you to get a great bicep workout in, within minutes. They’re also great for getting a quick biceps pump before you head out. Here’s what to do:

  • Start off by again planting your foot firmly on the centre of the resistance bands, so that the middle of them is held firmly on the ground with your foot.
  • Next, grab a handle in each hand, with your palms facing towards you.
  • Extend your arms down fully in front of you, so that they’re roughly level with your lower thighs.
  • Now, you will need to bend your elbows and curl your palms upwards whilst holding the resistance band handles in both hands.
  • Curl your arms until they’re level with your chin, and then extend your arms back down to the starting position.
  • Repeat for as many reps as necessary.

Standing lateral raises – These are another great resistance bands exercise that will target your rear deltoid perfectly. After 10 reps or so, your shoulders should begin to feel a deep burning sensation. Here’s what to do:

  • Stand on the very center of your resistance bands, and grab a handle with each hand.
  • Let your arms hand down at your sides until they’re level with your thighs.
  • Your palms should be facing inwards, pointing towards your body.
  • Next, pull upwards and rotate your palms slightly as you do, keeping your elbows bent at around a 45 degree angle.
  • Bring your arms upwards and outwards until they’re roughly level with the bottom of your ears.
  • Slowly bring your arms back down to the starting position, and repeat for as many reps as required.

There are millions ways to lose weight but exercising is the best and most effective and definitely the safest way possible to do so. Using resistance band will maximum the effect of each exercise. get your resistance band now and lose weight.
