Happy New Year! In 2019, I plan to post lots of creative workouts with new exercises and stretches. Today’s workout is going to give you a taste of some of that creativity I plan to bring this year. Follow along with this mini band & dumbbell workout today!
If you want to build muscle and burn body fat, you need to do workouts that confuse and challenge your body. Today’s workout will definitely confuse your muscles.
This whole workout can be done without equipment. However, if you are ready for a more advanced workout, you need to add the bands and dumbbells.
Using dumbbells will make each exercise more challenging because your body has to move around more weight. When you add in the resistance bands, things will feel even more intense! The bands add more tension to specific parts of each exercise.
Blending the two pieces of equipment like this will take your workouts to a whole new level. If you like this type of routine, check out my 4-Week Slim Down. That home workout plan uses mini bands and dumbbells in most every workout. Just like the workout below, the 28-day plan will help you build muscle and shed body fat.
