Home Gym – Resistance Bands

Resistance bands are available in many sizes and strength.  You can get a really good workout whether you are at home or traveling. I have been exercising for about 20 years and during that time I had been pretty creative in the gym until I met CrossFit. You can use the resistance bands the same way you would use free weights and do just about everything. These are also great to bring to the gym with you in case someone is tying up equipment you want to use.

If you are searching for things to do with your resistance bands here are a few websites to checkout:

Do not underestimate the power of the band. If you feel that the one you are using is too simple, simply increase the resistance band strength.  <!–more–>

Here is a video of some resistance band exercises. Do not feel intimidated by the model in the video, just focus on the workout. If you incorporate healthy eating into your daily intake, exercise regularly and treat yourself in moderation you will reach your goal.

I chose this resistance band video because there is no talking.  I like to get right to the workout.  Resistance band exercises are low impact workouts.  You can always go through each routine 3 to 5 times for a really good workout and add some cardio before, in between, and/or afterwards.

Setting up a home gym does not have to cost you thousands of dollars.  Focus on some small powerful pieces and get moving.  What is in your home gym?
