Resistance Band Workout Routine For Beginners

If you’ve ever been to a gym, you might’ve seen people training different types of resistance band exercises.

Maybe you’ve used them before or you were not sure what to do when you picked them up. 

Here are a few resistance loop bands exercises that you can do literally anywhere. This will be a great addition to your resistance band workout routine.

Resistance Loop Bands Exercises

Resistance Band Standing Kickbacks

The first resistance band exercise we will demonstrate is the resistance band standing kickback.

Wrap the resistance band around your ankles. Stand on your left leg (maintain your balance by keeping your core engaged), as you bend your right knee, lifting the foot slightly off the floor.

Kick the right leg back behind you with a nice slow tempo, straightening your legs you extend back.

Make sure to squeeze your glutes and hold for one to three seconds.

Bring your leg back down with a nice slow temp and repeat.

We recommend doing this resistance band exercise 3×10 each leg.

Resistance Band Iso-Metric Kickouts For Hip Flexors

The second resistance band exercise we will cover is the resistance band iso-metric kickouts for hip flexors.

Just like the kickbacks above, wrap the resistance bands around your ankles.

Stand on your left leg (maintain your balance by keeping your core engaged and shoulders pinched back).

Extend the right leg in front of you. You are going to hold for 10 seconds while kicking your leg slightly in front of you.

Keeping your knee slightly bent and maintaining your balance, you’re going to feel your hip flexors activated.

After performing on your right leg, switch legs and repeat on your left leg.

We recommend doing this resistance band exercise 3×10 seconds each leg.

Resistance Band Lateral Shuffle Walks

One of our favorite resistance bands exercises is the resistance band lateral band walks.

Wrap the resistance bands around your ankles.

Keeping your chest up, athletic position, knees slightly bent, step the right foot out to the right, and then with control, step the left foot over to meet it.

Take 5-10 yards of steps to the right, and then do the same thing coming back to the left trying to get the same amount of steps.

We recommend doing this resistance band exercise 3×10 yards each way.

Resistance Band Hydrants

This is one of the best resistance bands exercises you can do for hip mobility.

You can grab a yoga mat or perform this on a turf setting, but on all fours, wrap the resistance band around ankles.

Make sure to keep your core engaged when you open your right knee to the side.

As you raise your leg, squeeze your glute and outer thigh and pause for one to three seconds.

Also, your knee does not have to be extremely high at first but make sure to keep the shin parallel to the ground.

Lower back down slow and controlled.

We recommend doing this resistance band exercise 3×15 each leg.

Resistance Band Clamshell

The final resistance band exercise we will demonstrate is the resistance band clamshell.  

Wrap the resistance band around your quad, slightly above the knees.

While laying on your side with your knees bent and hips stacked, externally rotate your top leg.

You want to make sure you lift the knee up and out.

You want to feel the activation in the outer hips and glutes.

When you rotate, pause for one to three seconds and slowly lower back down.

We recommend doing this resistance band exercise 3×10 each leg.
