Hips: Resistance Band Exercises for All Levels


Ready to jump start your fitness routine for 2017? We’ve got you covered with an eight-part video series featuring easy-to-do resistance band workouts accessible for almost all fitness levels. The best part? No gym or fancy equipment needed.

You spoke and we listened! Our readers have asked for simple, easy-to-perform exercises that are adaptable for any exercise level and age — even for mobility issues. These moves can be executed seated or standing, and with either a circular band or one that needs to be tied from end-to-end. If using the tied band, make the circle tighter for more resistance, looser for less. In the first installment of our video series, Matt Gardner, health and wellness coordinator for Hometown Health, demonstrates exercises for strengthening your outer hips.
