Today’s Coach: Fit Chef Katy

Type: Strength & Toning
Where: Anywhere
Equipment: Resistance Band
Difficulty: Easy
Total Duration: 25 Minutes

Description: This workout was designed to create strong and long muscles for the upper body. It has a mix of quick and intense cardio bursts to keep your heart rate up and your body burning calories. When you transition into the band moves, you will find that a little bit goes a long way with the tension. Make sure to keep good form and hold that core tight. Keep the shoulders and the back strong throughout the whole workout.

Before the workout have a long resistance band of the color tension that works for you to repeat about 30-45 reps. Also have a space where you can do jumping jacks, run in place or jump rope. This is a resistance strength routine so your heart rate will stay in a lower zone, but with the cardio will be pushed.

This workout will tone muscle and burn fat. Just the combination you came to do!

Don’t skip this exercise if you don’t have resistance bands!  Go through the exercises creating resistance by flexing the muscle groups using strong, precise movements. Where possible, you can opt to use bottles of water or other weighted objects. Resistance bands are inexpensive but very effective workout equipment so it’s wise to invest in a set that’s right for your fitness level because, in no time, the resistance bands exercises will become too easy for you without them!

Workout moves: Overhead press right arm,  overhead press left arm, bicep curls, right side lateral raise, left side lateral raise, cross over, torso twist to the right, torso twist to the left, triceps push back.

Cardio options: Jumping jacks, running in place or jump rope.
