Loop Resistance Bands

One of our favorite ways to get in a good bodyweight workout is by using resistance bands. These body bands range from an extra light resistance (the yellow band) to a more challenging extra heavy option (the red) and allow continual growth while your muscles grow stronger over time. Ideal for targeting the upper and lower body, we suggest putting a band around your thighs for lateral lunges or putting a band around your feet for glute kicks. Bonus: You can easily take these bands with you to the office (desk workout anyone?) or on vacation thanks to the included carrying bag. ($9, usually $16; walmart.com)
