Adding a mini band to your workouts can improve progress and add difficulty to exercises without having to go heavier in weight!
Mini-bands on Amazon (affiliate link): https://amzn.to/3jGlqiJ
For each exercise, the goal is to push against the resistance of the mini band.
This can also encourage proper form.
For each exercise, perform 2-3 sets of 20-30 reps, keeping the tempo slow and controlled:
1). Monster walks (glute activation)
2a). Banded goblet squat
2b). Banded RDLs
3a). Single-leg hip thrust
3b). Single-leg Bulgarian split squat
4a). Banded reverse hyper on bench
4b). Banded seated abductor
5). Squat mini-jumps (can use band here, if you’d like).
