You can use this resistance band routine as a warm up for your workout or a workout in itself, depending on how hard you push yourself and the resistance level you use. In this video David walks through the basic movement patterns, demonstrating both pushes and pulls in straight and angular patterns – perfect for preparing your body for a free weight, cable or machine workout.
If doing pre-workout, use a rep range that leaves your muscles feeling warm and limber before moving on to the next move. If you’re doing it as workout, choose a higher resistance band and go until you can no longer move the band to the full range of motion.
Bands are portable, cheap and can be used to challenge, balance, coordination, strength, endurance and flexibility all at the same time. A perfect fitness solution if you’re at home, on the road or even on holidays.
