For The Avid Readers Of This Blog - Here's My Workout Journal:

Monday: Arms & Chest

Warmup/Cardio: Resisted Boxer

This exercise looked fun! I anchored my bands with the included straps. Then I punched my arms forward alternating while also quickly switching legs. This was very effective. After just 2 minutes I was already drenched in sweat. Added benefit: my arms were also warmed.

Bench Press (4 sets of 8 reps) 

I actually used a garden chair for this. Thanks to the bands, I could add A LOT of resistance. I could really feel the burn on this one.

Triceps Extension (3 sets of 10 reps) 

I attached Bands to a door with the delivered straps. The exercise was a bit too easy for me at first, so I actually decided to do 20 reps instead of 10. Next time I'm probably just going to add some extra bands for more resistance.

Wednesday: Shoulders, Back & Core

Warmup/Cardio: Zigzag Drill

I used the ankle straps to do a TABATA which is a form of high-intensity training. I did a zigzag drill for 20 seconds, took 10 seconds rest, and repeated this process for 4 minutes.

Resistance Band Deadlift (3 sets of 10 reps) 

I've never been a fan of deadlifts because the risk of injury is high when training with heavy weights. However — with these resistance bands there was no risk. I really managed to push my body to the limit, while still remaining safe. I used all bands for max resistance.

Weighted sit-ups (3 sets of 25 reps) 

Sit-ups are very efficient. Weighted sit-ups are a way of spicing up this exercise and making those muscles burn even more. I did this exercise while laying on the ground.

Friday: Legs And Butt

Warmup/Cardio: Skating Squats

I wanted to warm up my legs while also increasing my heart rate. Just stand on top of the band with both feet. Push your hips back and bend knees into a squat. And immediately rise up out to the squat again. Repeat for 2 minutes.

Calf Raises (5 sets of 10 reps) 

Although I feel I could have done this exercise without the rubber bands, it added stability to my body. I managed to push myself harder and actually did 15 reps instead of 10 reps.

Resistance Squats (3 sets of 15 reps) 

This was a great alternative to the classical squat. The straps gave me extra stability but also made it way more difficult to get up. This was also my last training session with this product and it was a good one: I couldn't feel my legs after this workout!
