Exercise bands are versatile, portable and most of all – adjustable. You can easily change your training tension from rep to rep just by changing your body position or the length of the band. No need to swap weights or load plates. They are also fairly inexpensive to purchase and can easily be packed up and taken anywhere. Most of the time they come in 3 different weight ranges – light/medium for shoulders and arms, medium/heavy for back and chest, and heavy for lower body.
Today’s workout is a push-pull circuit for a fresh, efficient way to train your upper body.
1) Standing Rows
2) Standing Chest Press
3) Bicep Curls
4) Overhead Tricrep Extension
5) Lateral Raise
6) Front Raise
Do 3 sets of 15. Challenge yourself with a drop set of each move at the end on your final set: Choke up on the band for more tension at the start, and slowly lengthen the band to make it easier as you move through the last set. .
