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? Resistance bands work most similarly like free weights by providing some sort of external resistance that your muscles have to work against. While pushing against the resistance of the bands during an exercise, your muscles have to engage to fight the tension to keep your good form and not break it. What this means is you’re working against resistance throughout the whole range of your exercise, not just the position when you’re moving against gravity.
Most often then not, these little resistance bands seem to be used for glute related exercises. And nothing more. I am here to show you a couple of new exercises that you can use with these handy mini bands, in the hopes of shaking up your workout routine. Or changing your view on this versatile exercise tool!
