Stef’s Full-Body Resistance Bands RV Workout: Video & Printable Included!


Since RV Season 2017 is just amping up, I wanted to get another printable workout plan out there before y’all hit the road.

This isn’t my first printable full-body workout plan…the other one, the Bodyweight Workout, I’m sure you’ve already printed out and have done it a million times and have it stashed in the RV…RIGHT?!?

The difference is this one requires resistance bands. But not just bands, you’ll also need a way to mount the bands to a tree or pole or something sturdy. The attachment anchor I’m using in the video is THIS LARGE STRAP from Bodylastics and you can find it on Amazon.  We use the Bodylastics brand of resistance bands and accessories since they have the extra safety cable inside each band. Plus we love how they sell them in a grab-and-go kit; which makes them super travel-friendly.

Let’s talk about the workout. It’s made up of 8 exercises. The workout level can be anywhere from beginner to advanced depending on how much resistance you add to the detachable handles. While the first two exercises don’t require the mount, the other 6 do. I did keep it simple by only choosing exercises where the mount would be at chest height, so you’re welcomed there. That’s probably the one pitfall with resistance bands training. There can be a lot of fiddling with the mounts and bands transitioning between exercises. Not so in this plan! Set your attachment anchor once and no need to move it the entire workout.

I also made sure to choose exercises that would maximize calorie-burning as well as strength training. I talk with enough of you to know many of our followers are more focused on the weight-loss part of fitness training, so I kept that in mind. That pretty much means each exercise is going to work the majority of your major muscle groups all at once, instead of isolating one muscle and working it hard. Full-body exercises like these will build your functional fitness (AKA movement and daily living efficiency) too.

Okay I’ve rambled enough. The printable is the first photo below. Above is the video that demonstrates each of the exercises in the print-out… please watch it before attempting these exercises! There are some safety considerations and performance tips I point out in the video that will help you do these more effectively.

Hope you enjoy the workout! I’ll take your payment in the form of COMMENTS BELOW!!! Love hearing from you. Tell me what you think!

xoxo, Stef

      Stef, Is there any way to download your videos, so that I don’t have to connect to internet when I’m RVing in remote areas? Thanks for the printable, they are a big help!

      Hi Stef. George again with a question I hope you can answer. Based on your video, I just ordered a Bodylastics set with 4 handles in case my wife wants to work out at the same time I do while we’re on the road in our Winnie Fuse this summer. The set does not appear to have that large band you wrapped around your square wooden pole in your total body workout video. Does that band have to be ordered separately? Probably a stupid question with “yes” as the answer! Safe travels to you and James.

        Glad you asked about the anchors… they are critical! Without the anchors you are very limited in the exercise choices you have. We have both sizes of anchors, but if you only get one anchor the large is going to be the best, here’s link: http://amzn.to/2oQmruH

        And if you decide you want the small as well, which works great for picnic table legs and railings and also mounting to your RV’s attached ladder, then that one is here: http://amzn.to/2oOxlkW

        I’m so glad you ordered a kit! Would love to hear how it goes for you; do keep in touch George! xoxo

          Thank you for answering, Stef. Our set has 4 of the small anchors, but not the large one. Seems the larger one, backed up by a grungy towel to protect it, would be much better for wrapping around a small tree or pole. I am leery of attaching the small ones to an RV ladder, even though the ladder seems to be solidly attached. Just my luck I would pull the ladder right off the back of the vehicle and void the warranty! So I’m going to order a large band for trees. Will keep in touch. You’re sweet to put xoxo at the end of your messages. My wife tells me she thinks that means a friendly form of “love and kisses”! I am 71 years old, so I had no idea, but you are very nice, anyway! You and James do the best RV videos online, and you were a strong influence on our Fuse 23A purchase last year. So far, things have gone wrong, but we still love it!

      So glad I found this video. My body really deteriorated during a three month road trip with no workouts and lots of unhealthy food, and I don’t want that to happen again. Thank you again for a wonderful presentation, and thanks for leaving the photo-bomber in it, too!

      Makes me want to try the bands. Looks fun. I am still doing the Hindu push ups. That was game changer for me. Improves posture. Totally amazing. Bands would go nicely with that. Now where do I put this? Lol
