TOP 5 TOTAL BODY Resistance Band Workouts

Hi everyone! 🙂

I hope that you have been staying hydrated and thinking about a goal that you want to achieve within these next upcoming months with me! Now that we have established how much “fuel” (water) you need to get your car ready to go (your body) let’s take our first test drive and start with your FIRST workout! Yay!

For this workout, we are going to focus on resistance band exercises. This is going to be a total body workout, meaning we will be hitting muscles from your head to your toes! In the video above, I have broken down how I want you to perform each exercise, along with how many repetitions (one complete motion of that exercise) and sets (consecutive exercises) you should be doing.

Resistance band training is great method of training for the following reasons,

  1. You can do them ANYWHERE, like I am 🙂
  2. It’s a low cost type of workout! I got my set of bands (easy, medium and hard) for $14 at Target
  3. WAY easier on your joints
  4. Provides a type of resistance that you can’t get from weight training
  5. Helps with flexibility, agility, quickness, muscle strength, muscle growth, cardio and core
  6. Allows you to be creative and make it fun!

These workouts that I have provided are great for anyone at any fitness level. You will feel so rewarded after completing just a 10-minute workout!

So, your first objective/homework assignment was to drink AT LEAST 64 oz. of water a day. I hope you all are staying consistent and making that a top priority! With that being said, for your second objective…are you ready? …go out and buy yourself a set of resistance bands as soon as you can! You can take them with you if you go on vacation, don’t live near a gym or if you really just want to start slow and slowly work on progressing. Whatever it may be, consider this $14 as a life investment!

Stay happy, stay healthy and like always… A 4% workout is one hour of your day that can change 100% of your life! Did you really think I would forget to say that? 🙂

  • As a speaker at the first ad hoc meeting of rheumatology practice managers gathered in a single small room at its infancy a decade ago, I’m amazed to see how NORM has blossomed into a high energy organization of depth and professional meetings with parallel break-out symposia between plenary sessions. NORM has truly come of age. This is where the “business” of rheumatology gets learned. The ”guildmanship” for rheumatology practice management is now strong.- Paul H. Caldron, DO, FACP, FACR, MBA, Arizona Arthritis and Rheumatology Associates
  • In a time of demanding changes in the management of medical practices in the US, NORM has been a lifesaver to the community of Rheumatology practices.  NORM has allowed our practice to stay ahead of the many demands of CMS and others payors and has ensured that our practice remains cognizant of new issues that arise in HIPPA compliance, human resources and medical billing to name a few. Sending our Practice Manager to NORM's conferences has been cost-effective and beneficial to our practice because she returns to our office with an abundance of information that otherwise would have taken months to compile. Every Rheumatology practice that wishes to stay on top of emerging issues in practice management should consider sending a member of their staff to NORM's conference.- Michael S. Rosen M.D., Chester County Rheumatology PC
  • Thanks to all those wonderful people in the NORM Network who respond to emails, offering their advice, experience, time, and support ... I haven't even been a member a full year yet and I am amazed at the dedication of everyone who responds to helping via emails and the NORM Organization itself! I have barely had a chance to explore the resources and I have yet to really dive into requests for help still I am silently learning so much and do occasionally offer what I can! Thank you all!- Cheryl Piambino, Kenneth E. Bresky, DO
