We call this “Sportband Appreciation” because sportbands are an easy and effective training tool. They’re very inexpensive, you can pack them anywhere and they work for everyone. If you’re never worked with sportbands before, give them a try.
This workout is very basic, but depending on the resistance and intensity you use, it can be very challenging. Go through all the exercises once, then repeat if you feel up to the challenge.
The resistance for these exercises is determined by the size of the band you use. Start light and move up accordingly.
Intensity may be increased in a number of ways:
1.) Using heavier resistance
2.) Limiting rest time between sets
3.) Increasing repetition speed
NOTE: Limiting rest time includes the time between switching sides, if applicable, as well as switching exercises.

At Hybrid Fitness, we’ve always been a big fan of Iron Woody sport bands (www.ironwoodyfitness.com) We’ve been using them for years and discovered a few things…they’re incredibly durable, guaranteed for a year and come in a variety of sizes to accommodate ANY level of strength. Iron Woody has a lot of other great gear so check them out and see what you find.
