Put at work the elastic band and get back in shape!

The elastic band is a wonderful accessory for sports, efficient and practical. It can be put in holiday luggage or taken to the park and is easy to store at home!

Depending on your level of training and a specific training plan, it can be determined which of the elastic bands suits you best. 

Leg exercise

Stand with the elastic band under the soles and feet apart at the shoulders. Hold the elastic band handles at shoulder level. Lower yourself exactly as in knee bends, keep your abdomen tense, and push your knees forward. Return to the starting position and then repeat the exercise 8-12 times.

Arm exercise

Standing, spread the legs at the shoulders level and keep the knees slightly bent. Hold the elastic band in the middle with both hands, shoulder height and palms facing up. With outstretched arms, push the elastic band first forward, then pull back until you feel pressure in your shoulder blades. Do 8-10 repetitions.

Abdomen exercise

Wrap the elastic band of a tall object (for example upon the door). Grasp the tape with both hands and sit on your knees, with your back to the support object (door). The elbows are bent over the body. Tighten your abdominal muscles and bend to the ground. Repeat 10-12 times.

Back exercise

Spread the legs with the elastic band fixed under both feet. Grab both handles while your arms are outstretched, and pull the band with palms up. Bend over and then pull your hands towards your abdomen with your elbows bent and your shoulders tense. The arms are bent at 90 degrees. Return to starting position and do 10-12 reps.
