Who needs an uber effective, short on time, home workout without dragging out endless amounts of equipment? Me! Me! Me!
Just did this workout and sharing as it was absolutely perfect. Talking the perfect workout for a small space, only need a resistance band and mat, and maybe a few puppies!
These moves completely hit the key upper-body muscles! And don’t forget about the core….those abs are hidden (well not so hidden) in this workout too.
This 30 minute, resistance band, upper body and core home workout is perfect for a small space and was designed specifically for the busy mama.
While many upper body workouts involve a ton of equipment like weights and barbells, arm exercises with a resistance band is a super solid way to put muscle to the test. There’s no heavy lifting required and a gym membership is totally optional.
Many of our exercises today are going to target both those arms and abs…totally working those muscles at the same time. Multi-tasking at it’s best!
While these exercises are useful for anyone, no matter your fitness level, they’re especially good for beginners.
Ready to get started?
For this workout, you just need you, a resistance band, and a comfortable spot on the floor. This is a workout that is jammed packed with a ton of volume (or reps) and you will feel the burn.
My absolute favorite resistance band came straight from Amazon (can we say Prime…good gracious I am addicted). Find them HERE.
This workout is 9 moves, 10 reps each, and for 3 rounds.
We start out with a quick warm-up to get the blood flowing. This is about movement and can be anything you like doing.
- Inchworms with shoulder taps
- Banded planks with elbow pullbacks
- Tricep push up
- Dolphin planks with knee press in
- Staggered push up
- Full sit up reach
- Kneeling banded pulls
- Kneeling overhead banded pulls
- Kneeling banded circles
Cool down and stretch!
Need info on a move? Or even better…workout with me.
Where did you get that outfit?
Oh…you already know! This entire outfit (top, sports bra and shorts) are all from Old Navy. Check them out here.
Old Navy has been my staple go-to for activewear. Talking tons of different options, colors, and sizes. Real clothes for real shaped women. Plus they last forever, wash well, and won’t empty your wallet.
Highly recommend checking out their Elevate Powersoft line for leggings. This is hands down my absolute favorite leggings. Super soft, just the right amount of compression and they have pockets!
Wrapping this one up!
Home workouts are the silver lining to this whole crazy year! When COVD rolled in like a giant hurricane, our usual routines completely fell apart in one quick quarantine ruling. Who knew that our own family rooms would become the next “hot” spot for working out?
Missing a workout buddy? Did you know this entire workout was done by a zoom call with other ladies just like you? Each week, we come together for a 30 minute or less workout but from our own homes.
