3 OF MY FAVORITE RESISTANCE BAND WORKOUTS FOR ELONGATED LEGS AND ARMS

3 Favorite Resistance Band Workouts for Elongated Legs

 

I have loved adding weights to my daily workouts over the past few years, and decided to focus a little more on really elongating my legs and arms (specifically my upper thighs). I narrowed down some resistance band exercised to my three favorites that have given me the best results in giving me leaner, longer muscles in my arms and legs

RESISTANCE BANDS

 

 

 

 

A few months ago I grabbed these resistance bands at target. I have been doing lots of squats and pushups lately (view one of my favorite squat workouts here). I wanted to really focus on developing leaning longer muscles. So I incorporated a few resistance band exercises. I tried a few different variations of resistance band workouts. I wanted a few simple exercises that were easy to remember and gave me the fastest results (ie: IĀ hate wasting my time during a workout). I try to only do exercises that push my the hardest so I know I will see improvements.

 

Over the course of four months, I narrowed down the workouts to my three favorite resistance band workouts. These three easy to do (and remember) workouts can be done at home, at the park while the kids play, or at the gym. Resistance bands are great because they are easy to transport and inexpensive!

 

Here are my three favorite resistance band exercises:

3 Favorite Resistance Band Workouts for Elongated Legs

  • Wrap band around your ankles and place band under the bottom of your shoe
  • Stretch leg back as far as your can with opposite leg straight
  • Repeat 20X then switch legs

 

ARM ROW

(good for toning your biceps)

3 Favorite Resistance Band Workouts for Elongated Legs

  • Use a band that has less resistance, or cut a band and hold a side in either hand
  • Keeping knees slightly bent & back straight, raise bands up with your arms as high as you can, then lower completely
  • Repeat 20X

 

I like to do this series of workout 3 times in a row, or incorporate some of my favorite squats workouts in between. I also have a 25 minute at home workout I like to do that I have saved in my highlights on my Instagram page.

 

 

When it comes to resistance bands…

 

I try to look for bands that give me a good amount of resistance. I use these resistance bands. I use the band with the most resistance almost exclusively. I also cut one of the bands. I like the option to tie it to make it extra resistant.
