Resistance Band Giveaway and Workout

Resistance Band Giveaway

I am so excited to announce our first Fitness Friday Giveaway! Today, we are giving away a pair of mini resistance bands from FitSimplify! These mini bands can easily be thrown into your workout bag to take with you to the gym or even when you travel for a little workout on the go! See the details below on how you can enter to win!

Why do we love resistance bands?

We love resistance training and the extra oomph it adds to your workouts. You can use resistance bands to work virtually any muscle group, but my personal favorite is how they can really fire up those glutes. Resistance bands really force muscle stability and core engagement. You can add these mini bands into your total body workout, your high intensity interval training or as a great core finisher!

As a little bonus, we’re giving y’all a little workout you can do in the privacy of your own home or at the gym!

How would you like to add resistance training into your workout routine?!

Here's a little workout for you! Pictures below!!

Resisted deadlifts 15 reps

Resisted hip bridges 20-25 reps

Resisted in and out squat jumps 20-25 reps

 slight bend in the knees, come down to flat back position, and when you feel a pull in your hamstrings stand up engaging the resistance and squeeze those glutes!
