Curtain call! Last week we toned and strengthened your chest and back. Our final challenge is all about your core. Never forget the importance of a strong lower back and abs! This is part 4 and the final workout of our 4 Week Resistance Bands Challenge.
Equipment Needed: resistance band, interval timer, yoga mat or soft surface, pole or stable surface to wrap the band around
Equipment Recommended: Interval Timer (Gymboss is a free app download), Black Mountain Resistance Band Set
What to Do: Below are instructional videos explaining the main movements you’ll rely on in these workouts. Once you watch them, the movements will eventually flow. Resistance bands provide a different type of burn, so don’t let the light weight fool you. If you want to increase the resistance on certain workouts, widen your stance. To decrease the resistance without jumping down a full band, use one foot and center it. Always bend slightly at the knees and keep your core tight. It is also important that you control your motion when moving down. Instead of letting gravity bring you down, perform a nice, controlled movement, allowing full control of the band. That will make all the difference! For best results, do this workout twice each week.
Please Note: If you have purchased new resistance bands, some need to be broken in and are challenging initially. Start with a lighter weight band and build into a more challenging one if needed.
