The Mini Band is my FAVORITE piece of exercise equipment. When I’m on the road, or even looking to get in a great workout at home, it allows me to add resistance without having weights or other equipment that take up space.
It is also one of the best ways to get your glutes activated, which is what most people use it for. But the mini band can also be used to add resistance to upper body and core moves. It can be the perfect tool to get in a full-body workout anywhere.
Below is a Quick Full-Body Workout you can do using a $3 Mini Band. This workout will only take under 20 minutes and work your legs, butt, back, chest, shoulders, arms and even your abs!
