With a lot of gyms currently closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, staying active has become a challenge for many. Keeping a regular workout routine is not only beneficial to keep your body strong and fit, but it also helps to ease and reduce stress and anxiety during these unprecedented times. However, though home workouts are on the rise since lockdown, it is always a good idea to have home options available regardless of viral outbreaks. With our typical day to day, busy lives, sometimes making the time to go to the gym or park for your exercise seems impossible. That is why investing in some practical home equipment and knowing some simple workout routines can help you achieve your fitness goals no matter where you are.
One of the easiest and most beneficial ways to sculpt and tone your muscles without the hefty price tag is resistance bands. Resistance bands offer similar benefits to weight training with the addition of being small, light and portable, taking up little to no space in your home. To help you get the best use out of your resistance bands, we have put together a simple yet effective resistance band routine to work your legs and glutes for an ultimate booty workout!

This exercise tones the upper thighs as well as the hips and lower back. Repeat each side x 10

Get your heart rate up and burn some extra calories with some squat jumps. Place the band just above your knees and bend down into a squat before jumping up and repeating. Squat jumps help to increase your explosive power as well as tone up your core, glutes, hamstrings and lower back. Repeat x 10.
Curtsy lunges help to tone up the thighs, hips and core, and with the addition of the leg lift, this exercise is an all-rounder for working your lower body and helping to increase stability.
