KatieJFit’s Full-Body Resistance Band Workout | Work Out From Home

Full-body workouts can be effective, especially when the gyms are closed. If you don’t have time to train five days per week, then full-body workout could be just what you’re looking for.  

This resistance band workout from KatieJFit will help sculpt your whole body, hitting more muscle groups in one session than a traditional workout split. 

Resistance bands are a relatively cheap and effective way to train, providing that extra resistance you’ll need to see results. Use this super-simple eight-move workout to tone every muscle group. 

KatieJFit’s Workout 

Katie has combined the full-body workout and added in a resistance band to make it the best of both worlds. Chris our PT here at Myprotein has given us his top tips for mastering each exercise. For each exercise complete 3 sets of 15 repetitions. 

 

Chest flies 

  • Keep a slight bend in the elbows and squeeze the chest together.   
  • Ensure a slow release for better tension. 

Bentover Row 

  • Back and neck in line and straight.   
  • Squeeze the shoulder blades together.   
  • Slight bend in the knees and pull into the belly button. 

Sumo Deadlift 

  • Back and neck neutral with a wide stance just outside the shoulders.   
  • Pull the band up between the legs and squeeze your bum.  
  • Keep the movement smooth and controlled. 

Banded V Crunch 

  • Keep the feet off the floor and the tension in the band throughout.   
  • Keep the chest up and back straight sucking in your core. 

Overhead Press 

  • Keep the motion smooth and controlled and pushing from the chest, bring the head under when pushed over to complete the move.

Stationary Lunge 

  • With a straight back and a slight bend in your knee, lean forward until you feel the hamstring stretch.   
  • Kick the opposite leg bag for balance and adding a squeeze to the glute will target a second muscle group. 

Front Raises 

  • Keep the body straight and the core engaged.   
  • With straight arms, raise until level with the face to feel the burn in the front head of the shoulders. 

Take-Home Message 

A resistance band is such an inexpensive addition to the impromptu home gym and with the amount of versatility, they offer it’s a new staple. Combining this with a full-body workout is such an effective way to get a sweat on whilst adding the extra resistance from one simple band is genius.
