We love resistance bands! They’re so convenient to throw in your gym bag and take your workouts anywhere. Plus, they'll help you target every muscle group—big and small—to leave you feeling toned and gorgeous all over! Resistance bands are the perfect tool to add some extra intensity, too. The greater the resistance, the more energy you’ll burn.

Today, we’re sharing some of our favorite arm exercises using a resistance band. From your triceps and biceps to your shoulders and entire core, get ready to feel the burn. For the best results, complete three rounds of each move, 15 reps each!
