I am super excited to share this back and shoulder resistance band workout with y’all today! Shoulders and back are some of my favorite areas to work on. I even kicked it up a notch and did this at the gym yesterday with weights, today I am going to show you how to do it at home. Which is what I did last week when Conor and I needed some fresh air and vitamin D!
I find for myself, my clients, or people who come to me for advice, need quick workouts that can be done at home, or while they are travelling. These workouts need to be done with minimal or no equipment, efficient, and quick!
Thankfully, you don’t have to spend hours doing cardio and lifting weights at the gym to get in shape. You can do a workout that involves just your bodyweight, or some small equipment like a band or kettlebell, at a high intensity, for a short time, and get results. Now you do have to be consistent, and get in a routine, but you don’t have to spend hours a week working out to shake up your metabolism and start feeling and looking better.
For this back and shoulder resistance band workout you will just need a resistance band. I have this Slastix band, which I love, but you can use whatever you might already have. This one is just heavier duty than most, and has been through a lot of workouts and still works great!
This is a more strength based workout, but done at the right intensity will get your heart rate up. The workout is done in a circuit meaning you do one set of each different exercise to complete a round, and repeat for a total of 3-4 rounds, with minimal rest between exercises and rounds. Please check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise routine!
