Oooh, I like my resistance bands!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I tried them today for the first time, and my arms certainly felt nice and tired afterwards, so hopefully it was a good workout! And it was nice to be able to catch up on some TV while I did it in the comfort of my own home, without being at the whim of other gym-goers in terms of what was on the single TV (or staring at myself in the mirror in silence if they wanted it off. Personally, though, I like the distraction!).

I did some of the exercises provided in the little demo worksheet that came with the bands, and I did Coach Nicole's 20 minute band workout. I love Nicole, but her workouts are very often too easy for me, and this was no exception; even when I tightened up the resistance on the bands, some of the exercises just didn't do much. Plus it was a seated workout. I don't need or want a seated workout. But it was good inspiration and I learned a few tips!

Maybe I won't miss the gym that much after all!

    I recommend several of the Leslie Sansone DVDs that involve resistance bands! Miles 2 & 4 of "5 Really Big Miles" (2011) are quite good!

    Have fun with those! Just a tip, if you put them in the door for pulls or whatever, make sure the door frame is towards you, you don't want those things flying at you!

    Good luck!
