Workout of the Week
Resistance Band Workout

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.

Workout
Perform each move for 40 seconds with a 20 second rest between exercises, modifying intervals, exercises, and band resistance as needed. Repeat each set 2-4 times total. Rest 1-2 minutes between sets 1 and 2.

Equipment needed: Resistance bands (one or a few of varying resistance).
