What You’ll Need:
Your body weight
Tips: Before doing any kinds of exercises, consult with your body first and make sure it’s comfortable.
1. Back/Ab Stretch
Spend about 3 minutes– reach all the way down to your feet in the front then slowly bend back.
Use full range of motion and go as slowly as you can to allow the body to stretch to its full potential.
2. Full Body Stretch
Hold hands together and reach as far you can while slowly bending your legs in a squatting position. This targets the upper and lower back, arms, legs (especially hamstrings)
3. Squat to Bicep Curl
Stand on a resistance band with your two feet holding it apart. Once you get situated in that stance, begin to squat while at the same time, curling your biceps with the upper part of the resistance bands. (
(25 reps 3 times)
4. Good AMS
This targets your lower back, glutes and hamstrings. Keep your arms above your head or hold it behind your neck, then place yourself in a squatting position. Move your upper body forward all the way, and raise it up and down.

This is also a great way to practice form without
5. Rear Delts
Keep yourself in the same position as previous but this time, pull the bands up (as if you were holding dumbbells). Do it in slow motion to really feel the resistance in your muscles as it works your upper body.
6. Leg raises
Use one foot to secure the band to the floor while taking the other one to lift the resistance band. You should really feel a burn in the glutes.
(25×3) per leg = total 50
7. Straight Legged Kickbacks
Stand straight and use one leg to pull the resistance band as your kicking back in slow motion.
You’re basically doing this but in a standing up position.
For those of you in college who cannot get access to a gym or those who don’t own a gym membership, keep in mind that if your heart desires it, you can find your way around absolutely anything! Be creative with your workouts and always do what works best for YOU.
