I used to be a gym junkie. But, a really crappy, ineffective gym junkie ?
I’d go to the gym for hours. I didn’t really know what I was doing, or how all the machines worked. I was also too proud and embarrassed to ask anyone to explain it. Or, I'd spend too much time looking like an idiot while holding up the line to a machine while I tried to figure it out how it worked.
I'd usually end up sticking to my trusty elliptical or treadmill, and the handful of machines I’d successfully “mastered”. After busting my butt, I hardly saw results, and felt defeated. Basically, I was working out the same muscle groups over and over while leaving other areas untouched AKA flabby.
There was also that time I tried to make up my own home exercises and circuits. It was basically the same situation as the gym, minus the judgmental audience. I'd waste all this time trying to figure it out for myself and not see ANY results.
Now, I have the best of both worlds. I have world class trainers, virtually walking me step by step through moves to target all the flab; all from the comfort of my own living room. Not only do I get to take the time to get the moves right, but I don’t have to worry about anyone seeing me act a fool when I’m learning a new move.
Try out this 7 minute resistance band circuit. Do each move for 60 seconds alternating sides. I just started incorporating resistance bands into my workouts and I’m loving it. Low impact, seemingly simple, but oh so effective. Yowza! If you like these moves, shoot me a message and I can share sample workouts with you to try out!
