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!
