STRENGTH WORKOUT
Grab a resistance band, wrap it around a treadmill, bike or other secure object and perform 15 to 30 reps of each exercise depending on your fitness level.

Chest Press: Hold the band's handles, turn away from the band and bend elbows so fists are by the shoulders. Squeeze the chest and press the arms with palms forward out. Do not lock the elbows. Use control to return the arms to first position.

Rows: Face the band. Keeping the chest up, shoulder blades down and abs contracted. Reach arms forward, and row by pulling the elbows back and squeezing the chest. Return with control.

Bicep Curls: Stand on the band and grip the ends with palms facing up. With elbows by your side, curl up.

Tricep Extension: Stand on the band. Hold one handle in both hands and stretch it overhead. Keeping elbows facing forward, bend and extend from the elbow.

Squats: Stand on the band with feet wider than shoulder-width. Hold the handles in front of the body and parallel to the floor. Bend your knees and lower your body like you're sitting in a chair. Squeeze your glutes as you come back up.
