08 Jun Wondering How to Stay in Shape Whilst Away? Try Resistance Band Exercises
Up until recently resistance bands were only ever associated with elderly women, however resistance band exercises have there place, especially if your going on holiday and don’t fancy packing your dumbbells! Also great for when working out at home too.
Granted you are not going to be lifting to your maximum, but you can still have an intense workout with these flexible friends, as there is resistance through every part of the exercise, unlike free weights.
My friends and I took these over the park on our boot camp Sunday session and boy did we all felt it the next day! Even the kids had fun joining in too 🙂
Here Macy, Lucy and Lydia giving them a try!
