Sheaf Workout: Resistance training

By in Sheaf Workout/Sports & Health

The next time you hit up the gym, try adding a resistance band to your workout regimen. If you do not have access to dumbbells, it’s not a problem, because a stretch band can be used in their place.

A stretch band isolates muscle groups and tones and shapes the body just like dumbbells. Bands are usually colour-coded according to the amount of tension, and there are a variety of weighted bands to choose from. To start off with, use a tension level that is comfortable for you.

1. Banded side-step squats

2. Standing hip extension

3. Bent-arm row

4. Lying bent-leg abduction (or clamshell)
