Having a busy schedule can keep you from having enough time to exercise. It’s difficult to stay fit when you struggle to find time for workouts and fitness classes. However, not all hope is lost. There are still some exercises that you can do wherever you go. Aside from yoga, one of the activities that you can do anytime and anywhere is a workout routine with resistance bands.

Resistance bands are lightweight, small and easy to use. They’re very portable, especially if you need to travel often. 

This article will primarily focus on workouts that involve building your core and glutes, but the wonders of resistance band exercises are not limited to those alone. After reading this article, feel free to do more research on workout routines that target specific areas in your body.

Resistance Band Supermans

  1. Put the resistance band around two inches above your knee. Starting from your tummy, extend your legs and arms in front of you.
  2. When you exhale, engage your glutes and core muscles as you lift everything off the ground. Your body should make a “U” shape, similar to the Locust Pose.
  3. Fixate your eyes on the front of your mat. Next, as you inhale, bend your elbows and squeeze your shoulder blades together.
  4. As you extend your arms back in front of you, release your breath. Next, slowly lower your arms down.
  5. Repeat the routine 10 times.

Standing Diagonal Leg Raise

  1. Keep your feet at a hip-width distance, with your toes facing 2 o’clock. Next, put the resistance band two inches above your knee.
  2. Activate and engage your core muscles as you shift your weight onto your left foot.
  3. When you exhale, lift your right leg behind you as if you are pushing back onto a pedal. Next, inhale as you bring the right leg back towards the centre.
  4. Repeat the routine 12 times before switching sides.

Standing Lateral Leg Raise

  1. Start by keeping your feet slightly further than a hip-width distance apart. Afterwards, put the resistance band around two inches above your knee.
  2. Keep your core engaged as you shift your weight onto your left foot.
  3. When you exhale, lift your right leg to the side. As you lower it back down to a hover, remember to inhale.
  4. Repeat the routine 12 times before switching sides.

Lateral Resistance Band Walks

  1. Begin the routine by keeping your feet at a hip-width distance apart. Next, place your resistance band around two inches above your knee.
  2. Lower yourself into a Chair Pose, keeping your hands at the heart centre.
  3. Step to the right while still maintaining a low squat, activating your core in the process. Next, step your left foot in so that it can meet the right.
  4. Repeat the routine two to four times before switching sides.

Slow Bicycles

  1. Start by lying on your back. You should place the resistance band around the arches of your feet, and you should bend your knees at 90 degrees.
  2. Interlock your fingers behind your head and keep your elbows wide.
  3. When you exhale, lift your chest enough to get your shoulders blades off the mat. Your right elbow and left knee should touch as you extend your right leg.
  4. Switch sides after each breath.
  5. Repeat the routine for 30 to 60 seconds.

Glute Bridges

  1. Begin by lying on your back, with your knees bent and stacked over your heels. Place your resistance band around two inches above your knee.
  2. As you exhale, engage your glutes and lift your hips. Take three breaths, and as you exhale once more, lower yourself back down.
  3. Repeat the routine 12 times.
