At-Home Body Blast Resistance Workout

Are you looking for a full-body resistance band workout that you can power through at home? Look no further! This workout is designed to work your entire body from top to bottom.

Reps, Sets, GO!

The golden rule of resistance training is consistency and improvement. You need to be consistent to improve. For a full-body blast workout, there should be at least two circuits. All workouts should consist of at least 1 set of 12-18 repetitions (also known as ‘reps’) of each exercise, with a short rest between reps. There should ultimately be a 15-second rest between exercises in each circuit.

The workout will feature exercises that target both the upper and lower bodies for a total body strength training program.
