We should all take measures to guarantee that we are never again left unprepared for a lengthy period at home, given how difficult it became to get home gym equipment when the COVID-19 outbreak started. Lockdowns come and go, so it’s best to ready your workout gear at home right away for when you can’t go to the gym again.

Investing in a set of resistance bands is one of the best ways to be prepared. We believe they rank right up there with your survival necessities when the outside world shuts down, along with canned goods, toilet paper, petrol, and Marmite.

Resistance bands are a convenient and affordable method to work out wherever you are, and they also take up less room in storage than almost any other workout equipment. 

When the world isn't on lockdown, they're also helpful since you can throw them in a bag and make sure you can get in a good exercise when you're on the go. You can use them for several workouts, from regular strength sessions to fast-paced HIIT blasts.

This article will run you through the various full-body workouts you can do with some exercise bands.

Bring Your Front Squat to the Next Level

Place the resistance band under your feet so that it rests on the front of your shoulders while you stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Knees should be over toes as you crouch down with your chest up. Next, raise yourself to your starting posture.

Get Those Bicep Contractions with One-Arm Bicep Curls

Place both of your feet on the resistance band and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold the band in one hand, palm facing front, and your arm at your side. To produce a strong biceps contraction, bend at the elbow and raise your arm toward your shoulders. Then, gently descend to the starting point. Perform each repetition with one arm, then switch.

Get Your Glutes Working with Side-Lying Hip Abductions

With the resistance band wrapped just above your knees, lie on your side with your knees and hips bent 90 degrees. For two to three seconds, draw your knees apart while tensing your glutes, then gently return to the beginning position. Complete every rep on one side before switching.

Stretching Your Shoulder Muscles with Splitters

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. With both hands in front of you at shoulder height, hold a part of the shoulder-width resistance band. Pull the band out and back until your shoulder blades compress while keeping your arms straight. Return to your starting position gradually.

Work Your Back and Glutes with Glute Bridges

Lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent at a 90-degree angle. Loop the resistance band just above your knees. 

Lift your toes off the floor, elevate your hips until your knees and shoulders are in a straight line, and squeeze your glutes the entire time. Your knees should be slightly opened when you lift your hips to press against the resistance band.

Press-ups to Work Your Core and Arms

Place yourself in a plank posture and grip the ends of the resistance band under your hands while draping it across your upper back. As you push up straight until your arms are completely extended, lower your chest toward the ground, engage your glutes and core, and push up from the floor.


This is just a little sample of what you can do regarding resistance band exercise. You can use a resistance band to strengthen almost any muscle in your body, so you should make them a part of your fitness equipment.
