7 Resistance Band Workouts before your Morning Commute

Based on fitness advice from experts, there are some fast morning workouts that one can do in the morning with the resistance band only. If you are a fitness enthusiast, you can try out the following resistance band workouts in the morning before going to work.


Front squat

This is one if the simplest fast morning workouts that you can do with a resistance band. First stand on the band while holding the two ends of the bands with each of the hands. Keep your feet apart so that they will be wider than the shoulders. Sit on your kneel as if you are squatting. Draw each ends of the bands so that they will reach your shoulder. Keep your abs firm, your chest upright and sit straight. Return to your initial position and repeat the exercise eight to twelve times.

Leg extension

Some fitness advice books recommend leg extension with the band. Fasten the loop of one end of the band in a support. The position should be low. Put the other end around your ankle. The band should back you. Create tension on the band by moving away from it. Your hip should be hip-width apart. Lift your right foot while supporting your weight with the left foot. Extend the knee forward and gradually return it to the initial position. Repeat the exercise 8 to 12 times and then change to the left leg.

Prone Leg Curl 

Prone Leg Curl is another example of fast morning workouts that can be done with a band. It is described in many fitness advice books. Fasten one end of the loops to a support or a door and anchor the other end around your right ankle. Lie down with your belly facing down. Create tension on the band from the anchor by moving forward. Keep your legs bend at the knee and then tighten your core. Try to bring your heel to glutes to the extent you can. Go back to your initial position. Repeat the exercise severally and change sides.

Supinated clamshell 

Supinated clamshell is one of resistance band workouts that you can do in the morning at home. Place the band across your legs above the knees. As you’re lying down on your back, flex the hips and knees at angle 90. Contract the glutes while keeping the knees apart. Go back to the starting position and repeat the exercises 10 to 12 times.

Standing abductor

Fasten the loop to a support keeping it at the ankle height. Face the support while standing perpendicular to the band with the left side. Anchor the remaining end across the right ankle. Move forward to create tension on the band. Make a quarter squats and move the right ankle across passing the standing left leg keeping the thigh together. Repeat the exercise severally.

Seated abduction

Tie the loop across your two legs while sitting at a chair’s edge. Keep your feet shoulder-width apart. As you are moving your legs apart, turn your feet in and press your knees out. Hold on for 2 seconds and return to the initial position.

Lateral band walk

Tie the band across your lower legs. Create tension on the band by keeping your feet shoulder-width apart. Shift your weight to the left side while maintain a half-squat position. Use the right leg to move sideways. Bring the standing leg a little bit in. Repeat this walking fashion about 8 to 10 times.

The above resistance band workouts will give you a lot of benefits if you do them very well.
