Full Body Resistance Bands Challenge

This post may include affiliate links.

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, easy to travel with, and can help tone your body from head to toe.

This is going to be a full body toning workout! We want to help you get a toned and tight body. Resistance bands are great tools for that, so get ready for this full body resistance bands challenge!

      Olya, This workout is designed specifically for resistance bands, but there are many other workouts on the site designed for weights. Hope that helps:).
