Niki’s Resistance Band Workout

Zenfitter’s love to share:

zenfit_3a As we already know, most of our clients are stoked about sharing their love for the health and wellness lifestyle. Niki has been training with us for over a year and has worked hard at her progression. She has recently passed her Can-fit Pro certification and like all of us at Zenfit likes to see people become the best version of themselves.

This Is Niki’s Resistance Band workout..!

 

Hi Bart,
Today I switched up my routine and did a workout that required only a resistance band and body weight. I thought I would share it with you as some people don’t have alot of equipment and I thought this sequence would be good for them!  Resistance bands are inexpensive and portable!

 I warmed up by doing my stairs in my house-up & down counting as 1 time for a total of 10 times. I then did interval running on my treadmill for 25 mins-(not everyone could do this if they don’t own a treadmill but it could be modified using something else) I did 10 more times on the stairs then I got into my band workout.

 

LEGS                               SETS            REPS        
RB
Squat                          3                   12-15
Jump Squat                      As many as you can 
Rest 60 secs after last move   
 

CHEST/BACK

RB Bent Over Row             3                   12-15

 ARMS/LEGS

RB Biceps Curl                     3                    12-15        
RB Overhead extension         3                    12-15

 ABS

Crunch                                 3                    20-30
Reverse Crunch                   3                    20-30

All exercises were done with the resistance band except the plyo exercises and abs.
I hope others could benefit from this!

Meet Kim..!

Putting it all together…

 Zenfit_KIM_MSometimes you wonder if you are making the change you want to see in the world. You put your money where your mouth is and you work toward the greater good. This is a letter from one of our Zenfit Tribe members; Kim has been with us from the beginning. She has done the work and its paying off; she’s an amazing inspiration to anyone that enters one of our camps and we wish her continued joy and success throughout her “living fitness” journey.

I just want to say a little “thank you” to both you and Lynn for running such a great program. I love coming to ALL your classes.  In the past I have gotten bored with exercise programs, and usually quit as soon as my “pass” or paid sessions run out.  I feel great, and truly have more energy than I have felt in years. (People actually comment me on that) Not only do you make it fun to be put through the paces, but you make each week different which motivates me to do a little better each time.

Most importantly … I am beginning to see the results! I never realized the potential I had. I owe that to you both!   I never thought in a million years, I would be joining such a thing like “Tough Mudder”!  I welcome the challenge and look forward to keep working with you & being in the best shape of my life in 2013.

Thanks again!

Kim.

Thank you Kim for the kind words this makes our efforts worthwhile..!

Bart and Lynn.
