For this workout we're going to focus on TIME instead of reps.
We're going to do 4 sets of each exercise with no break in between the exercises - but a 2 minute break between circuits (upon completion of one set of all 4 exercises). Each exercise will be performed for 1 minute each.
This is a great fat burning workout and you can adjust the intensity by using different bands! Let's get it going! Clock Jumps: 1 Min Unilateral Rows: 1 Min each arm Boxer Press: 1 minute Arm Circles: 1 minute in each direction REPEAT x4 Let us know what you think! We're going to be putting out a new workout series every week! Stay Strong Banditz. Details: This workout focuses on keeping up your heart rate. Real strength is forged when you've got absolutely nothing left - so push yourself as hard as you can for the time allotted for each exercise. Wear away all the energy you've got until all you're pushing through with is pure will power. On the other side, this circuit is great for fat loss. It's intensity and "High Rev" nature will get your heart rate up, and make sure you get those calories running for their money!
This is a full body workout but the main muscles that are focused on in this circuit are:
Clock Jumps: Legs (cardio)
Unilateral Rows: Back/Arms
Boxer Press: Chest/Legs/Arms
Arm Circles: Shoulders/ArmsRead More

One great feature about working out with looped resistance bands is that you can combine different training concepts into each exercise. It’s great to explore the way your body naturally moves and challenge yourself by combining variations in strength, stretching, and stabilization. This exercise is an example that combines all three of those pillars. Don’t be afraid to get creative. Think outside the band.Read More

I love dips as much as anyone but also attest that dips can get monotonous if not spiced up. So why not throw some spice in your dip and make your arms and chest burn a little more?
This is a burnout technique meant to increase the amount of dips you can do in each set. If you can do a set of 5–15 unassisted dips, give yourself a pat on the back and then go grab a band.
This quick video will show you how to perform dip burnouts until muscle fatigue by adding incremental elastic assistance.
We advocate using at least two bands. The bands offer various assistance tiers; for example, you can do the first set with a heavy black band, the second set with a robust purple band, and finally the third consecutive set with both the heavy and robust band.

People often ask how to optimize their workout for efficiency. One trick worth noting is the power of the push-pull combo.
What does this mean in practical terms?
First, we advocate the super-set training method. A super set is when you string multiple sets together to form one continuous set before resting. We advocate super-setting exercises that strengthen different muscle groups (such as pushups and pull ups). By combining multiple exercises that target different body parts prior to resting you do two things: (CONTINUED)Read More
