Resistance bands are really good exercise equipments. They are easily available and are as efficient as any other exercise equipments. In case you already have one, below in this article I am going to provide you with a few resistance band exercises that will help you make your core stronger.
If you still don’t have a set of resistance bands then you should probably get one soon. Here’s a list of some of the best resistance bands reviewed under different categories.
For this resistance band exercise you will have to fix the band to a slightly high place like a door or even a cable column would be good enough. Once you have found the right place all you have to do is firstly kneel down and catch each end of the band. Now put your elbows out till your shoulder levels and begin crunching down near your hips, contracting your abs. Make sure you engage your abdominals. Move back to your starting place at a slow pace. Continue this for about 8-10 crunches.
For this exercise you will have to act like an axe man or woman. Here too you will need to fix the band at a slightly higher position. Once that is done with your right side towards that position catch the lose end of the band with your hands extended over your head.
Now smoothly pull the band down to your front close to your knees while twisting your right hip and placing your back foot correctly. Continue doing this at least 8-10 times.
Anti-Rotation Band Walkout
For this exercise fix the band unto a support or a cable column that is placed a little below your chest. Catch the free end of the band and squat to an athletic position while creating some tension on the band.
While grabbing the band with both arms extend them in front of your chest, tightening your core. Keep moving laterally till the band cannot stretch any more. Now slowly return to initial pose. Continue this 8-10 times.
Fix the band on a slightly lower area and then lie down on your back. Bend your knees at a 90 degree angle and tie the band around your feet and start moving them backwards so that it creates tension.
Make sure your abs are tight and that you keep your back straight while your abdominal muscles contract. Now smoothly return to the initial pose and continue doing this exercise for about 10-15 crunches.
For this exercise you will need to be seated on the floor with your legs stretched out. Now wrap the mid portion of the band at the bottom of your legs and catch the handles in each of your hands. Now bend your knees a little while keeping your legs on the ground and lean backwards at a 45 degree angle.
Now turn the band by moving your left hand across your body and your right hand close to your right hip. Now you need to get the band close to your right hip and then return to the initial pose. Continue doing this for at least 10-15 times.
