You Should Own A Resistance Band!

Strength TrainWhatever the special occasion, the use of a resistance band will greatly provide an experience to strength train, even on the road.  When the occasion calls for late nights, high fat foods, and the opportunity for easy weight gain, use calisthenics and the resistance band for a great and effective workout.

One of my favorite ways to ensure that you can strength train in addition to performing cardio while you are away is to utilize calisthenics as well as resistance bands.  These are great tools which are often overlooked when at the gym.  Bands are inexpensive, light and easy to carry in luggage.  What’s more is, the change in your routine will often yield visible results!  What’s better than that?  Getting more fit while on the road?  Or maybe entering the New Year healthier than the last!
Check out this sample routine – sure to challenge you and give you a total body workout.
