These total-body routines will push your muscles to the limit. If you’re looking for that perfect anywhere, anytime workout, a resistance band is one of the best tools around—they’re insanely versatile and super portable. Toss one in your suitcase for a quickie vacation workout, or just stash one in your closet for when you don’t have time to hit the gym. The best part? For something so simple, there are a surprising number of ways to use it to sculpt, tone, and sweat.
The exercises you can do with a resistance band are pretty much endless, and it can supercharge your favorite bodyweight moves. Not sure where to start? First, snag a band—some have handles, but simpler bands without handles can be even cheaper (and lighter). You can also tie them into a circular band for moves like these butt-sculpting exercises.
Next, try these three total-body workouts—they’ll get your heart pumping and your muscles burning, which means you’ll get a cardio and a strength workout in. And since they’re each 15 minutes or less, there are no excuses. Ready to work?
