It's finally Friday!! And it's time for some Full-body Resistance Band FUN! Exercise really can be fun if you mix it up and try new exercises that you can perform anytime, anywhere and with minimal equipment and time!
This week's Free Fitness Friday: Full-body Resistance Band Workout
This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is 1 moderate weight long resistance band) and can be done in anytime frame that you have (anywhere from 15-30 minutes), but should be done at a fast-pace and with minimal rest. You can even fit this workout in at the end of a workout for an extra calorie burn! Complete all exercises in a row for 1 round, rest for 1 minute, then begin with the first exercise for round 2. Complete as many rounds as you can in the time you have! (Try for 4-6 rounds!)
As always, be sure to warm up before beginning the first round and cool down and stretch when you are finished.
- 10 Crossover band side-to-side walk to the right

Check out this short video to see how each exercise is performed and to ensure that you have proper form throughout each exercise!
See how much fun that was!? (Notice the smile on my face, haha) But then again, I am ALWAYS smiling! I believe that is the secret of life... that and eating well and exercising daily :-)
So give it a shot. Smile and go sweat! Then go on and enjoy the rest of your Friday and the weekend ahead!!
