Healthy Housewife Marzia Prince breaks out the giant rubber bands, not for an epic rubber band war, but to demonstrate a compound movement exercise using a resistance band and dumbbells that’s designed to work several muscle groups all at once.
Place the band around your ankles and stand straight, holding the dumbbells at chest height. Begin by squatting and on the way up performing a leg lift, punching straight out with the opposite arm. Repeat the squat, but alternate the leg and arm. Keep a slow controlled pace for several sets, or for 30 seconds. This is an excellent exercise to get your heart rate up and give your shoulders, arms, core, and legs a great workout.
