Resistance bands are great because they add extra load to exercises by making them more challenging. They can aid muscle activation. As they stretch, they increase muscle tension and force them to contract. “The more you stretch the band, the more intense the resistance gets and the exercise becomes more challenging to perform,” she explains.
Here are the exercises that you can do as part of the lower body workout:
- Goblet Squat – 15 reps
- Glute Bridge – 15 reps
- Donkey Kick – 20 reps (10 per side)
- Crab Walk – 20 reps (10 per side)
- Double Pulse Jump Squat – 10 reps
Exercises like crab walks are great for activation of glutes. They can also be used as a post-session finisher, says Itsines. For squats and glute bridges, you need to keep tension on the bands and it helps in engage the glutes when you do the movement.
