Mini Bands: More Than a Butt Enhancer!

3 Mini Band exercises you need to be doing!

If you were a gym go-er, like me, I am sure you have seen these tiny loop bands being used in the free weight section for fire hydrants and donkey kicks. So what is a Mini Band, you might be wondering, or more so why should you use them?
