Get Lean With Resistance Band Exercise

Resistance band exercises with pink bands.

Resistance band exercise is a super effective way to get those long, lean muscles. The resistance causes your muscles to squeeze tight, so you can get a great workout from simple resistance band exercise. Resistance bands come in a variety of sizes and lengths. Shorter, thicker bands are more difficult for the muscles and should be used for those who have some experience with resistance band exercise. If you are a beginner, I suggest a full set of resistance bands and working your way up from the less resistant to the more resistant as you continue to do resistance band exercise.

5 Resistance Band Exercise Moves

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and feet standing on the middle of the band. Hold one handle in each hand with palms facing out in front of you and arms at your sides. Perform a biceps curl by pulling your palms to your shoulders. Then, slowly lower back down. Repeat 15 times.

Center the band over a sturdy chair and sit on it. With one hand in each handle, bring your hands to just above your shoulders with your palms facing upward. Press your hands straight up until your arms are fully extended, keeping your palms facing up. Then, lower back down. Repeat 12 times.

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and feet on the middle of the band. Grab the handles and hold them just below stomach level with palms facing each other. Pull the band up to shoulder level with arms slightly bent. Then, slowly lower back down. Repeat 12 times.

Sit in a pike shape, with your feet straight out in front of you and chest straight up. Place the center of the band around the bottom of your feet. Extend your arms in front of you and grab the handles with palms facing each other. Pull the handles to your stomach while trying to squeeze your shoulder blades together. Slowly return to arms extended. Repeat 15 times.

Wrap the band around a pole or something very sturdy. Put your back to the pole and grab a handle with each hand. Step forward until the band is taught. Keep your elbows up, and palms facing down and start with your hands at chest height. Press the band straight out in front of you until your arms are straight, then return to hands next to the chest. Repeat 15 times.

Get ready for summer with resistance band exercise for your upper body. It’s a great way to get lean muscles that look defined and toned when rocking your summer dresses, swimsuits, and tank tops. I’d love to chat with you if you need any other inspiration for your beach body goals!
