Resistance Band WorkoutWouldn't it be amazing to have your own home gym? All the latest equipment, available anytime, without having to travel or pay membership dues at a gym? For most of us, a home gym is not even close to a realistic option. There is one piece of equipment, though, that is inexpensive, takes up very little space, is super-portable (great for traveling!), and on top of all this, it will give you an awesome workout at home!

What is it? A resistance band.

Bands can be used to replace traditional strength-training equipment like dumbbells or barbells and can easily adjust to make an exercise easier or harder. Not sure where to start?

This workout uses two different types of band -- one with an anchor that can be used in a door-frame, and one that's a simple loop to go around your legs -- and will help you work various parts of the body, from your shoulders to your lower body.
