Partner Resistance Band Exercises
Ever feel unmotivated, like pushing yourself to get a good workout seems impossible? Why not grab a partner and try out our favorite moves with the Toner. You may be asking why you would ever use a Toner to workout with a friend, well simply why not?
WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS
If you have ever worked out in a group setting or with a friend you realize having someone else going through the same experience can really help motivate you. We love these moves because you can do them on your own, or grab a friend to workout with.
We love partner moves because of the accountability. When you have someone facing you, and especially going through the same moves it helps to keep you going. Knowing you are not the only one suffering is really beneficial. All of us have worked out and experienced that painful regret of the final rep, but during those moments your mind wants is saying quit you have a friend telling you to keep going. There’s something about a shared brutality that brings people together. It may seem awful in the moment, but you both walk away closer because of it.
CAN PERFORM THESE ANYWHERE
Maybe the best reason to use a Toner is the versatility of them. They just a spin off of a classic resistance band, but with so much potential. The Toner can go anywhere, without the need for extra anchoring equipment or attachments. So if you’re out on the road or just sitting in your living room you can use a Toner. But if you want to get creative, grab a friend and think of your own moves.
- LUNGE W/ KICKBACK, CURL COMBO
- SIDE LUNGE ROW
- ALT BAND SIT UP w/ PUSH-UP COMBO
- SIDE PLANK RAISE
The moves above do not make up a typical workout, so if there’s any questions please watch the video to see how they are performed. But feel free to create something new. Experiment with what seems fun, provides a challenge and just creates the best experience for you and a friend. These moves may also be transferrable with the VITL Kit, but if you just have Toner, try these out, make something new, but most of all have fun.
