If you want to know how to turn up your workouts, these resistance bands are the key. Β They easily intensify any basic workout movement. Here are my top moves on how to tone up your butt, thighs and core using these bands.

Move 1: Jump Squats

You’ll feel the burn immediately. Place 1 or 2 bands (depending on your fitness level) right above your knees. Perform a regular squat and transition into a jump on your way up. The bands isolate the butt and thigh muscles so much more than a regular squat so the burn will be insane but so will the results!

Move 2: In and Out squats

Begin with your feet together, keeping the bands in the same spot. Jump outward into a squat position, then jump back to the starting position with your toes together and repeat. (If visualizing my explanation gets tricky, don’t worry. Below is a link to a video of me demonstrating all the movements.)

Move 3: Tap out squats

Begin in a deep squat position, keeping the bands in the same spot above your knees. Tap one foot outward then tap back in to your starting position and keep switching feet.

Move 4: Banded bridges

Lay down on your back, keeping the bands in the same location. Place your hands out to your sides and bend your knees as if you were getting into sit-up position. Lift your butt upward until your back is lifted off of the floor, making a diagonal line with your body. Squeeze your butt at the top.

Move 5: Ab rocks

This is my top move for achieving an amazing flat and strong stomach.Β Lay on your back. Bring your hands over your head, raise your shoulders upward and lift your legs up straight in the air so that you’re making a wide U-shape. Begin rocking by raising your legs upward and then using that momentum to rock back down again so that your shoulders lift off the floor. Repeat. Don’t let your feet touch the ground on the way down. You strictly have to rely on your core!

Do each movements three times using a descending pyramid. Begin with 20 reps, 15, reps, then 8 reps. Tell me how it goes!

These resistance bands are such a simple but effective way to turn up the volume at work outs. Best thing – it doesn’t take space. R
