TRAINER TUESDAY

by Kate Dewar, RD, LDN

5 resistance band moves that you can do anywhere!

1. Front Squat

Stand on the band with feet a little wider than shoulder width.  Hold each handle and bring to the top of each shoulder.  Complete 10-12 reps of a classic squat, keeping the chest up, core tight, and knees over toes.

2. Lunge & Curl

Place one foot on the band in front of you with the handles in each hand. Lunge down keeping the chest up and curl the arms up toward the chest. Complete 6-8 reps and switch to the other leg!

3. Bent-over Row

Stand over the center of the band with feet shoulder-width apart. With a handle in each handle, hinge slightly at the hips keeping the back straight. With bent elbows, pull the band in toward the hips squeezing the shoulder blades at the top. Complete 10-12 reps.

4. Lateral Raise

Place on foot on the middle of the band in front of you. With a handle in each hand, begin with hands down by the side. With a tight core, raise the arms straight out to the side until you hit horizontal. Complete 8-10 reps.

5. Tricep Extension

Place one foot on the middle of the band behind you. With a handle in each hand, raise the arms straight over your head. Keeping your arms up, bend the elbow behind the head, and complete 8-10 reps.
