Do resistance band exercises to burn calories

Here are two exercises that you can perform.

Resistance band walks

Tie a resistance band snugly around your ankles, before standing up. Place your feet approximately hip-width apart.

Now keep your knees straight, whilst holding a constant tension on the resistance band. Then take about 10 small steps to the left, followed by another 10 steps in the opposite direction. Thereafter you can repeat the whole exercise. You can also shuffle forwards for 10-15 steps, whilst still maintaining constant tension.

Resistance band isometrics

This exercise is done while sitting on the floor.
Tie a resistance band around the midfoot of both feet. It should be tight enough such that you begin to feel a gentle tension when your feet are close together.

Now drop down so that you are in a position where you are lying on your back. Place your arms out to the sides and bring your knees toward your chest. Your toes should be pointed toward the ceiling. Then push your right knee forward, until it is fully extended – your left knee should still be in a bent position.

Hold this position for about five seconds then switch and press with your left leg. Try to perform eight reps per leg.

Consult your doctor

Always remember to consult your doctor before starting any new exercise program or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.
