Resistance Bands

A few of these simple bands will skyrocket your workouts from basic to intense! They can be used all over the body to target different areas, but legs are certainly a favorite. Lie down face up with either end of the band in each hand. Bend one leg up to your chest and place your foot in the center of the band. Bring your elbows down to the floor and extend your leg up and out. This should naturally lift your hips off the ground. Hold the pose and then repeat several times on each side. And don’t forget to use resistance bands for improved stretching when doing your warm-ups and cool-downs.
