Double the mini bands equal double the fun.

Resistance bands are a super-useful tool to include in your training, but not all banded exercises are created equal. If you're familiar with the smaller single-loop mini bands and are looking for an added challenge, cue up this lower-body resistance band workout from celebrity trainer Lacey Stone. As if one mini band isn't enough, each of these resistance band exercises use two bands for double the burn. (Related: The Mini Resistance Band Tabata Workout with Moves You'd Never Imagine)

With a band around your calves and one around your thighs, you'll get an insane thigh and butt workout. All you'll need is twenty minutes, two mini bands, and a strong will. (Tomorrow, give your legs a rest and try Stone's upper-body workout with resistance bands.)

How it works: Perform as many reps as possible (AMRAP) of each exercise for 45 seconds. Then rest 45 seconds before moving onto the next exercise. Repeat for 3 rounds total.

You'll need: Two mini resistance bands

Jacks

A. Stand with feet hip-width apart, with one mini band looped around thighs, one band looped around calves.​

B. Jump feet further than hip-width apart while swinging arms out to sides and up.​

C. Jump feet in and lower arms to sides to return to starting position.

Do AMRAP for 45 seconds.

Booty Slide

A. Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees bent and torso leaning forward, with one band looped around thighs, one looped around calves.​

B. Step out on right foot, step in on left foot to return to hip-width stance. Repeat.​

C. Step out on left foot, then step in on right foot to return to hip-width stance. Repeat.

Do AMRAP for 45 seconds.

Concentration Booty Steps

A. Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees bent and torso leaning forward, with one band looped around thighs, one looped around calves.​

B. Tap right leg forward then back.​

Plank Peaches

A. Start in a high plank with one band looped around thighs, one looped around calves.​

Booty Bridge

A. Lie down with knees bent, feet flat on the floor, one band looped around thighs, one looped around calves. Press into heels to lift butt off of the floor, forming a straight line from knees to shoulders.​

B. Push knees out, adding resistance, then release to return to starting position.

Continue to push knees in and out for 45 seconds.
