Try This Super Bowl Champion’s Resistance Band Workout
The simplest way to get a full-body workout on the road
Whether you’re looking for a new workout to do in the gym or a way to stay in shape while traveling, you can usually find the answer in a resistance band.
Not only is a resistance band the most portable piece of fitness equipment in the gym (not counting your own body weight, of course), it’s also one of the most effective.
Compared with performing the same exercise with a dumbbell, barbell, or other weight, a resistance band forces your muscles to remain under stress for the entire duration of each rep, increasing overall time under tension and, ultimately, results.
Best of all, you can use a resistance band to perform literally hundreds of different exercises—which, of course, means you can put together complete workouts targeting specific muscle groups or even full-body routines using nothing more than this versatile, easily packable piece of equipment.
Watch the video above to see Super Bowl champion and Probing Elite Fitness and Performance founder Brandon Bing demonstrate a full-body workout using nothing more than a simple continuous-loop resistance band.
“You have no excuse not to finish or complete this workout, and you can take it on the road,” Bing says.
The format of the workout is simple. You’ll perform four exercises—the high pull, biceps curl, step and replace, and pushup—for 30 seconds each. You’ll do the exercises in the order listed, with no rest between moves.
The goal is to repeat the circuit four times, resting for one minute between circuits.
For those keeping count at home, that’s a full-body workout in 11 minutes.
