Full Body Resistance Band Workout

For the optimal full body workout, preform each exercise with 10-15 repetitions with a rest of 20-30 seconds in between. Do each circuit 3 times with a 60 second interval in between each round.

Band Thruster – Stand with your feet slightly wider than your shoulder-width with the band
securely under your feet and handles in your hand. Keeping the weight in your heels, squat down
and pause for a second, stacking knees over ankles. Then stand up while also pressing your hands
over your head to complete the shoulder press.

Skater Squats – Stand with your feet at shoulder-width with the band securely under your feet
and handles in your hand. Keeping left foot planted, step your right foot out to the side and
squat down, keeping knees stacked over ankles. Hold for two counts and come back to standing
position. Repeat on left side.

Bent Over Row – Stand with your feet at hip-width, a slight bend in the knees, with the band
securely under your feet and handles in your hand. Extend arms toward the ground then lift arms
up so that both elbows are in line with torso. Slow and controlled, extend your back down.

Overhead Triceps Extensions – Step forward with your left foot to create a split stance and
secure the band under your right foot. Hold onto the band over your back with both arms bent at
the elbow. Keeping your back flat and core engaged, extend the right arm up overhead, palm
facing away from your body then lower your back down. Repeat on left side.

Bicep Curl with Calf Raise – Stand with your feet hip-width apart with the band securely under
your toes and handles in your hand with your arms by your side and palms facing up. Curl both
biceps, pausing at the top, and raise up onto your toes at the same time. Release your arms and
come back down to your heels.

Pelvic Push – Lie on your back with your knees bent and heels shoulder-width apart. Drape the
