Resistance Bands Challenge: Week 2 – Legs & Butt

Resistance Bands Challenge: Week 2 – Legs & Butt

Last week we challenged you with an intense arm workout. This week we’re focusing on tightening that butt and toning those legs. This legs and butt workout is Part II of our 4-Week Resistance Bands Challenge.

Equipment Needed: resistance band, interval timer, yoga mat or soft surface

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 this is your first time using bands, go easy at first to get a feel for the controlled motion. 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.
