Resistance Band Workout For Beginners
If you’re looking for a way to begin exercising, but you’re too scared to lift any heavy weights at the gym in front of everyone - then have no fear.
Resistance Bands are a great, safe, and effective way for exercise-newbies to train and build lean muscle mass while minimizing the chance of injuries.
Here’s a quick Resistance Band Workout for people relatively new to exercise:
- ● Exercise No. 1 - Front Squat x 8 Reps
- ● Exercise No. 2 - Overhead Press x 8 Reps
- ● Exercise No. 3 - Resistance Push Ups x 8 Reps
- ● Exercise No. 4 - Bent Over Back Row x 8 Reps
This workout is to be performed in a circuit fashion; this means the exercises are performed back-to-back. Take a 10-15 second break between each exercise. At the end of the circuit, rest for 2-3 minutes. Then repeat the circuit 2 more times.
If you need a longer break, that’s completely fine. Everyone’s at different fitness levels, so don’t be ashamed to take a 20-30 second break between the exercises, or a 5-minute break at the end of a circuit.
Why Is This Workout So Effective?
Circuit workouts are great for getting lean because they keep your heart-rate up during the whole workout. They also allow you to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time which means you don’t have to spend hours upon hours in the gym.
Another reason why this resistance band workout will help you burn more fat and build more muscle is because of the exercises included; these exercises are full-body compound movements which require multiple large muscle groups to perform.
With this workout, you’ll produce growth hormones which will allow you to build more lean muscle mass while burning more fat too.
