Full Body Resistance Band Workout

Iris and Manny RamirezHere is this week’s Designer Whey Workout, dedicated to Iris Ramirez (pictured here with her family), who asked for a workout she could do with resistance bands.

She wrote: “I’m looking for an intense band workout for people who travel and have limited space or resources – ideally including cardio & strength intervals.”

Like Iris on Facebook page: Foundations619.

Well Iris, I put together a workout you can do a few different ways.

3 Different Ways to Workout

bodylastics bands1. Full Body Workout: do all 3 segments for 1-3 rounds each, or 1-3 full rounds, or 1-3 sets of each exercise in each segment.

2. Upper Body Workout: Do the Chest & Arm workout 3 times through (or each exercise for 3 sets each).

3. Do the Lower Body workout: Do just the leg & glute workout for 5 rounds, or 5 sets each.

NOTE: If you don’t have bands (or good ones), I HIGHLY recommend Bodylastics Bands, which come with handles, leg straps, a variety of different resistance bands and a door anchor (so you can attach the band safely to a door to do more exercises). Nothing even comes CLOSE to these bands. Other bands don’t give the same feel or consistent fluid resistance Bodylastics gives. A basic set starts at only $28.95 – and is worth every penny. Every home gym should have a set!

  1. Pinned this to try later this summer when we go on vacation. I always pack at least 1 set of bands when I travel!
    Thanks for sharing another great workout!!

  2. Thanks Bonnie! I tried just the legs and glutes portion tonight but modified a bit as follows to work on my weak points:
    Warmup: 50 4-count jumping jacks, 50 butt kicks, 50 high knees
    Substitutions: Instead of the resistance band lunges I did 15 step back lunges (no band) with kick, 15 pulses and 15 stomps (they kill me every time) on each leg
    Additions: 15 burpees between each round
    Total Rounds: 4

    It was a killer! Thanks again for convincing me to get a set of bodylastics!!

  3. the full body resistance band workout comments was really tremendous. especially the 3 different ways tips to workout is helpful for everybody good to see this article thank you for the information:)

  4. Resistance bands is one of the wonderful fitness accessories that I would love to workout with. It gives such a great feel and when I workout I feel more stronger than ever.
