When it comes to strength training exercises, I suspect most people think immediately of picking up heavy things like dumbbells and barbells, but the truth is that you can get a great strength workout with resistance bands as well! They’re super light and convenient to take with you for a workout anywhere, so you can squeeze in a quick HIIT like this in the middle of your day. 🙂
The setup for this one is incredibly simple – grab your resistance band (you can use a flat band like the one in the video, or one of the tube kind with handles, whatever you have available) and a timer and let’s go! Check out the free video below if you want to follow along or have questions about how to do any of the exercises.
15 Minute Upper Body HIIT with Resistance Band | Strength Workout for Arms, Shoulders + Back
Set your timer for 20 second intervals. Do all of the four exercises for 20 seconds each, then rest for 20 seconds between each round. Complete five rounds.
- Biceps Curls (20 seconds each side)
- Pull Aparts
- Lawn Mower Rows (20 seconds each side)
- Press Ups (20 seconds each side)
The workout video also includes a very brief warm up and some light stretching after the workout.
