When it comes to working out, everyone is guilty of the constant excuses that people tend to find to simply not get it done. You may have had a long day at work, a long day with your kids, or you just frankly are not feeling like it. Many studies show that a simple half hour workout can do wonders for both your physical and mental health. Not only that, but the more fit you are, the better you will become on the course. If you are in a rush and do not have time to hit the gym or your favorite workout class, do not fear! Purchase your very own resistance band and get a quick sweat in from the comfort of your own home. Throw some golf on the TV, grab your band, and let’s get to work:
- Resistance Band Bicep Curl. Stand toward the middle of your resistance band while holding each side of it, using the band for bicep curls. The wider your stance, the more resistance you will feel. Try to get in at least 20-reps.
- Resistance Band Glute Kick Back. Get down on all fours with your resistance band around your thighs, just under your glutes. Kick each leg back, focusing on the resistance of the band on each of your glutes. Try to get in at least 20-reps per leg.
- Resistance Band Glute Bridge. While you are still on all fours, keep the resistance band where it is and slowly lift each leg to the side, feeling resistance on your inner thighs. Do not forget to squeeze each glute as you are lowering your leg to ensure you keep resistance. 20-reps per leg.
- Resistance Band Pull Apart. Hold both of your arms out extended in front of you and slowly pull apart the resistance band, adding in as much resistance as you can. The closer your hands are together on the band, the more resistance you will feel. Pull the band 20 times.
Congrats, you did it! Now, repeat 3 more times and you will have a great resistance band workout to check off your list for the day.
