Weights are a great exercise tool to build strength, but they often overshadow resistance bands. Resistance bands come in different colors to represent the level of resistance they provide, so certain colors are more difficult than others. These tools are easy to use, are easy to travel with, and can help tone you from head to toe.
This is going to the a full body toning workout! Here’s the catch: we want you to time how long it takes you to do the workout the first time. Then each time you do the workout, time yourself. We want to help you get a toned and tight body. Resistance bands are great tools for just that, so get ready for this total body challenge!
Equipment Needed: a set of resistance bands, water for hydration and a soft surface to workout on.
What to Do: The goal of this challenge is for you to achieve quicker times, which will mean you’ll need less rest, and will become more efficient at this resistance bands workout. The first time you do this workout, time yourself. Take rests when you need to, go as slowly as you want to, and then just keep timing yourself each time you perform the workout to see yourself improving in terms of speed. Perform this 3 times per week for 2 weeks.
