A quick and fun resistance band workout! | read more at happilythehicks.com

Yay for a new Fit Friday! I have been looking forward to today’s workout for a while because it blends some of my favorite things: quick workouts, resistance bands, and lots of booty work. Who else is with me? I’m going to be short sweet and to the point today (just like this workout- ha!), so let’s get started! Hope you’re ready to get yo’ sweat on. ; )

Looking for a resistance band of your own to do this workout? Then you should check out these or these.

Quick Resistance Band Workout

Repeat each move 15-20 times, 2-3 times through! 

Side shuffle

Wrap a mini band around the middle of your calves and stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Squat down a few inches, and shuffle your feet three steps, then shuffle back three steps.

Squats

Wrap a mini band around the middle of your calves and stand with your feet slightly farther than shoulder width apart. Squat straight down, keeping your weight in your heels.
*Make sure your knees do not go past your toes!*

Kickbacks

Wrap a mini band around the middle of your calves and stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Stand on your left leg and kick the right leg straight back, squeezing your glute. Come back to meet your other foot, then kick back again. Repeat on the other side. 

Lateral leg lifts

Laying on your side, and with a mini band wrapped around the middle of your calves, raise your top let to make a 45 degree angle (yes, I involve math in my workouts!). Lower it down and repeat. Switch sides!

Bent Leg Lifts

Laying on your side, and with a mini band wrapped around your thighs, bend your knees 90 degrees. Lift up the top let, then lower back down. Repeat! Then switch sides.

Deadlift

Using a regular band, loop it around your feet to create more resistance. Bend at your torso (keeping your back straight), then stand back up, squeezing your glutes. 

Standing row

Get into a left leg lunge position, and step on the band of a regular band near the middle with the right leg. Grab the handle with your right hand and row towards your abdomen. Repeat on the opposite side. 

Chest opener

Grab a regular band with both hands, about 2 feet apart. Stretch the band as you open your arms straight back (you’ll form a T shape with your body). Return to center, then repeat. 

Bicep curls

Step on a regular band with both feet. Grab onto the handles with both hands, and turn your palms outward. Curl up and then lower back down. Repeat! 

Tricep extensions

Stepping on the regular band with both feet, rotate your palms to face backwards. Squeeze your arms backwards, focusing on the triceps. Return to center and repeat.

    Yes – thank you! I’ve had resistance bands sitting in my amazon cart for months because I wasn’t sure what to do when I got them. Pinning!
