Fitness, WorkoutkellypuryearComment

It's the second Friday of March and time for the second "March Madness" Free Fitness Friday Workout! As I mentioned last week, March is shaping up to be one busy month, so I will be sharing some awesome workouts that you can complete anytime and anywhere to help you fit daily exercise into your busy schedule! Let's embrace the "madness!"

This week's Free Fitness Friday: March Madness Lower-Body Resistance Band Workout

Resistance Band Workout

As usual, this workout is simple to set-up and perform! All you need is a open area and a light-to-moderate resistance band. To complete this workout, perform 40 seconds of the first exercise and then rest for 20 seconds before moving onto exercise #2 for 40 seconds "on" with 20 seconds "rest" before moving onto exercise #3... and so on until you complete 40 seconds "on" for exercise #5. Rest 20 seconds, then repeat starting with exercise #1 for 40 seconds. Continue through all four exercises in this fashion until you complete 4 rounds! Rest for 1-2 minutes and repeat for another four rounds for a total of 8 rounds! I know you can do it! Take your time and maintain proper form throughout the whole workout!

Round 1:

  • Banded squat into burpee (with a squat jump)
  • Band walk to the left
  • Band walk to the right
  • Band walk forward
  • Band walk backward

Check out this short video which demonstrates each exercise and be sure to maintain proper form throughout each exercise!

That's all there is to it! Your legs may be burning by now, but this lower-body workout also strengthens your core while stressing your cardiovascular system (in a good way)! Now that's a win, win if you ask me!

Happy Friday, fit friends! Have an awesome workout and a wonderful week ahead!
