While bodyweight exercises have tons of benefits, it’s easy to get push-up or burpee fatigue and throw in the towel completely on strength training. But with resistance bands, you can use your body weight without getting on the mat and still choose moves that target specific muscle groups. For example, if you want to tone your upper body, you can isolate those muscles and rest ones that may be getting a lot of overuse, like your thighs and legs.
To strengthen your biceps and triceps, try this routine from Courtney Roselle, an NASM-certified personal trainer and founder of Iron Grace. Do three sets of 10 reps for every exercise, or challenge yourself with an AMRAP circuit, doing as many reps as possible for 30 seconds, followed by a 30-second rest, for a total of three sets each.
