3-Step Full-Body Resistance Band Workout

Resistance bands are an easy and convenient way to get a great full-body workout whether you’re in the gym, outdoors, at home or traveling.  iGnite founder Neissa shares her favorite resistance band exercises that work your body from head to toe.

Complete 3 rounds of these 3 exercises for a challenging full-body workout:

(10 each leg)

  • Equipment: use a heavier resistance band for this exercise and others that work the chest and back
  • Muscles Worked: Quads, glutes, hamstrings, chest, core
  • Difficulty Adjustment: Adjust your resistance level by widening or shortening your stance, stepping forward or backward.
