Hi. I'm Lia Montelongo, personal trainer. And I'm going to show you how to do two mini band exercises. These exercises help strengthen your core and create stabilization. The first exercise I'm going to show you is the glute bridge with the mini band. So you're going to come into a line position, feet are flat on the floor. Bend the knees and bring the band right around the mid thigh. Be sure you create enough resistance that you feel it on the outer and the inner thigh. Hips are going to start in a neutral position, bring the hands along the sides of the body and bridge the body up lifting to about 90 degrees. Make sure you activate the glutes, inhaling and exhaling. Slowly lower yourself down and repeat ten times. Take about a thirty second break and then repeat another ten times. The next exercise I'm going to show you is the mini band squat. You're simply going to come into a standing squat position, bring the band right around the mid thigh, again creating enough resistance to feel it on the outer and inner thighs. Starting with the hands along the sides of the body go ahead and sit down into a squat and bring the arms up along the side all the way reaching towards the ceiling. Hold the squat position for just a beat and then come back up to a standing position. And repeat that ten times. Take a thirty second break and go ahead and do it another ten times. Both of these exercises together are going to challenge your core and create stabilization. They're also going to help with proper alignment of the spine and the hips strengthening the glutes and the hamstrings. Try both of these exercises doing two sets of each at ten repetitions and you'll be sure to have a great workout. I'm Lia Montelongo, personal trainer.
Today, I have some great exercises for you and a video, I wanted to go through 3 Mini Band Floor Exercises that you can do for shoulder health. The mini band is one of those little devices that I travel with. It easily fits in my back pack. I put it in my back pack with my loop tubing and skipping rope or jump rope and it is something that I can travel with easily and go through my workouts and do a little bit in the hotel room or if there is a nice area to go through a quick workout.
There you go, those are the 3 Mini Band Wall Exercises that you do for shoulder health. They are also helping when it comes to recovering from a shoulder injury but they are also good to work for regular shoulder health because shoulder injuries tend to be very common when it comes to people who exercise most prominently in men.
I love the gym, and lifting heavy things… but sometimes mini bands save the day! For instance, when you’re on vacation or going to be out of town and need a simple way to get in a work out without needing a lot of equipment. Not too long ago I was packing for a weekend trip and decided that I’d bring my mini bands along (they pack so well, since they fold into practically nothing… and are pretty much weightless!) I was able to do all of my favorite mini band moves and finish a brief workout in the time it took Kris to shower and get ready, freeing up the bathroom for my use. Total win!
