Did the start of the Covid-19 pandemic leave you inspired to start an exercise routine, like a vast majority of Americans who found themselves indefinitely spending a lot of time at home? If so, you were probably made aware of this phenomenon if you tried to shop around online for equipment and found almost everything was sold out virtually everywhere.
The good news is that nearly two years in, it’s not that hard to find home fitness equipment anymore. One item that is still proving to be quite popular is resistance bands, which are compact and can provide a solid strength workout without breaking the bank. While these bands are often touted primarily as a way to strengthen your glutes (which is key for preventing injuries if you’re an avid runner), or butt muscles, they can efficiently work several muscle groups, including your legs, arms, back, shoulders, ankles, hips, and stomach.
