Lower Body Exercises with Resistance Bands

People doing exercises with resistance bands for the lower body.

Lower body exercises with resistance bands are the way to get those nice legs that look killer in a pair of heels or running around barefoot in the sun. This specific workout will do wonders for the lower body! Try to do it once or twice a week with some cardio to get ready for bare leg season.

Lower Body Exercises with Resistance Bands

Squats (15). Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and standing on the middle of the band. Grab the two ends of the band in each hand and hold them next to your shoulders with palms facing upward. Keep a good tension and squat down, then stand up and raise your arms over your head as high as possible. Bring your arms back down to shoulder height and repeat the move.

Forward Lifts (15 each leg). Stand with feet slightly apart and band tied around both ankles with about six inches of the band in between each ankle. Put your hands on your hips and raise your right leg as high as you can, and then lower back down slowly. Alternate left and right leg for these exercises with resistance bands.

Ankle Pull (15 each leg). Anchor the band to something sturdy and tie the other end to your right ankle. Lay down on your stomach with your legs extended. Make sure there is a good amount of tension in the band and slowly bend your right knee and pull your ankle towards your backside. Slowly lower back down. Do all 15 on the right leg, and then do 15 on the left leg.

Knee Drops (25). Knee drop exercises with resistance bands start on your back with your knees bent so your feet are flat on the ground. Tie the band so it is in between your legs right above your knees with good tension. Slowly pull your knees apart as far as you can, then bring back together.

Lunge Steps (15 each side). Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and band tied at the ankles. Put all your weight on your left foot and step your right foot out into a side lunge. Stand up and put all your weight on your right foot, then step out your left foot into a side lunge and repeat.

Back Kicks (15 each side). Stand up straight in front of a wall with the band tied at the ankles. Stand on your right leg and extend your left leg behind you. Lift your left leg as high as you can, and then slowly lower back down. Repeat 15 lifts with the left leg and then switch to the right leg.

Jumping Jacks (50). For cardio and leg exercises with resistance bands, tie the band between your ankles and perform jumping jacks.

These lower body exercises with resistance bands provide a tough workout that’s really going to build muscle. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with just a resistance band! How have you been getting your legs ready for summer?
