Recommend a Good Resistance Band Workout

Can anyone recommend a good resistance band workout? I'm talking about those long, wide, stretchy rubber bands like this: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41yz75-F0aL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

 We use them as part of our warm up in my dance class and I love them! I bought one this weekend, hoping that the DVD it came with would be a good one to add to my collection. No such luck - the workout on the DVD was VERY low impact and more couch-potato friendly than what I am looking for.

For reference, my weekly workout schedule looks like this:

Monday - 90 minute dance class (includes pushups and situps)

Tuesday - 30 DS (whichever level I feel like doing)

Wednesday - Dance again

Thursday - 30 DS again

Friday - Dance again

Saturday- 30 DS and/or a 1-3 mile run

Sunday - 2 hours of swing dancing

I'm hoping to find a resistance band workout that is at least as physically demainding as level 2 of the 30 DS. Thanks in advance for any recs!

Re: Recommend a Good Resistance Band Workout

  • I've seen good reviews on  The Biggest Loser: Boot Camp .. and according to the description of the video,  it requires weights and resistance bands.   So... that would lead me to believe that it might be a workout worth checking out.  I actually broke down and ordered it online tonight, so hope to have a definite answer soon!
