If you are looking for an alternative to gym workouts and fitness classes, it is highly recommended that you purchase resistance bands. They are ideal for people who love to work out in the comfort of their own homes.

There are so many different resistance bands available in the market. They consist of different materials and come in different sizes, lengths and resistances. Use resistance bands to build strength, increase balance, improve agility and flexibility and build cardio.

Exercises using resistance bands are usually classified as either beginner, intermediate or advanced. You can start with the beginner exercises if you are new to resistance bands. We have shared the different resistance band exercises you can do at home. 

Resistance Band Bicep Curls

Build strength in your biceps with these resistance band bicep curls whether in a standing or sitting position. Start by tying a resistance band to a sturdy, stable object. This will depend on the length of your resistance band. The longer the band, the higher the strength needed in your arms. You can start off with a low-level band if you are a beginner. For this exercise, you will be using your weaker arm first. 

  • Connect one end of the band to your hand and then loop the end of the band around your foot. 
  • With your dominant hand and arm, pull the band. 
  • While doing so, curl your hand towards your shoulder. 
  • Repeat this motion until you feel exhausted. Do the same motion using your other arm.

Resistance Band Push-Ups

If you love doing push-ups, you can now do them with a resistance band. Resistance bands are usually great for the upper body.

  • Take a wider stance and place your hands on the floor while holding your band. 
  • Lower your body towards the floor by bending your elbows at a 90° angle. 
  • Do the push-up motion but with the band assisting your arms. 
  • Repeat the same motion until you feel exhausted.

Resistance Band Squats

There are so many different kinds of squats, and you can do them with a resistance band. Squats are an excellent exercise for your hips, legs and lower body in general.
