But getting a good resistance band workout isn’t just all bicep curls and side raises. You’ve got to mix it exercises that target the entire body.
Men’s Health, with the help of Charlee Atkins, C.S.C.S., developed this simple-to-follow resistance band circuit training regime that will definitely get you ripped before the first beach day. Just so long as you avoid all the backyard cookouts prior to June.
Resistance Band Circuit
- Chest Press
- Straight-Arm Triceps Kickbacks
- Biceps Curls
Atkins urges people to perform each movement non-stop for 50 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds.
Repeat the circuit 3 times for a fast 12-minute upper body blast.
Atkins adds to “make sure that you’re not rushing through the exercises, even though there might be less resistance than you usually use” and “concentrate on squeezing and contracting your muscles to get the most out of each rep.”
If you’re looking to really get a pump on your arms, here’s Atkins demonstrating a 20-minutes of arm blasting using a Theraband.
And if that routine gets old, try this 10 minute real-time resistance band workout from Zeus Fitness.
