Between Tone It Up and The Barre Code, I do a ton of exercises with mini bands. Honestly, my mini bands are my favorite piece of workout equipment I have at home. They really allow you to challenge yourself and feel the burn. Today, I bring you my a mini band workout to tone your whole body with only 5 moves.
- Mini band (I bought these from Tone It Up and love them)
Do 20 reps of each move. Complete the routine at least 2 times.
To do this move: Face the right and hold your left arm out straight in front of you like a bow and arrow. Pull on the band as you jump to the other side and switch your arms. This is one set. Try to keep the same pace throughout the 20 reps.
To do this move: With your arms behind your back, slip your wrists through the band and pull apart as far as you can while lifting your arms. Repeat 20 times.
To do this move: With the band around your wrists, shoulder distance apart get in to plank position. Alternate your legs back and forth toward your chest for 20 seconds.
Thigh step squat series
To do this move: Put the band high on your thighs. In squat position step to your left, your right, and squat low in the middle. Complete 20 reps. Then, lower the band mid calf-height and repeat for 20 reps.
To do this move: Lay on your side with your knees out in front of your hips making a 90 degree angle. Place the band high on your calves. Rest your head in your hand and put the other arm in front of you to balance. Lift your toes to the sky and open and close your legs to make a clam shell. Repeat 20 times, then flip sides so your opposite foot is on top.
