10-Minute Tuneups: Resistance band workout

Need a quick workout? Get toned all over in just 10 minutes a day using only a resistance band


A quick resistance band workout

Resistance bands are portable and easy to store, and let you work your muscles from different angles. That means a more toned look overall.

The thicker the band, the more resistance it provides, so choose one that feels challenging to pull but not like you’re straining, which can hamper your range of motion and ruin your form. You can up the intensity of these exercises by shortening the band; to do so, wrap the ends loosely around each hand.

Warm-up: 1 minute

Do gentle jumping jacks. Or simply march briskly in place while swinging arms to shoulder height.
