7 Resistance Bands Moves That You Can Do Anywhere!

April 29, 2015 2 min read

If you are looking to build your own home gym, but have a set budget to spend, then one of the pieces of gym equipment that I urge you to add to your list are resistance or workout bands! 1. The Tricep Thruster
  • Stand over the center of the band with feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Bend slightly at the knees and hinge at the waist, keeping your hips back.
  • Grasp each handle with hands facing the outside of your knees.
  • With elbows bent, pull the band up toward your hips, squeezing your shoulder blades together until your elbows form a 90-degree angle. Lower and repeat.

  • Place the center of the band around the sole of your right foot.
  • Then place your elbows and knees on the ground so your back is straight.
  • Hold the band firmly, draw your belly in, and extend your right leg straight out behind you.
  • Then draw your knee forward, but don't let it touch the ground.
  • Repeat and switch legs.
2015-03-203  3. The Rowboat
  • With legs extended, place the center of the band behind the soles of your feet.
  • Grab the band with both hands, arms extended and palms facing each other.
  • Sitting nice and tall, bend at the elbow and pull the band toward your core, squeezing your shoulder blades together.
  • Slowly return to starting position and repeat.
2015-03-202  4. The Reaching for the Sky
  • Anchor the loop or tube band underneath one foot.
  • With your right side to the support, grab the free end of the band with your arms stretched out overhead.
  • In one smooth motion, pull the band down and across your body to the front of your knees while rotating your right hip and pivoting your back foot.
  • Slowly return to starting position and repeat.
2015-03-201  5. The Squatter
  • Stand on band with feet slightly wider than shoulder width.
  • Holding a handle in each hand, bring the top of the band over each shoulder. (If it's too long, secure band in place by crossing your arms at your chest.)
  • Sit straight down, chest up, abs firm, pressing knees out over your toes.
  • Rise back up to start position and repeat.
2015-03-20  6. The Criss Cross
  • Stand on band with feet hip-width apart.
  • Crisscross band in front of you and hold handles at hips, palms inward.
  • Step to left as you raise hands to chest, elbows out (as shown).
  • Return to start; repeat on opposite side for 1 rep.

  • Stand with both feet together, holding the handle of a resistance band in either hand.
  • Step both feet onto the middle of the band, hips-width distance apart. You can choose to do one arm at a time or do both biceps at once.
  • Inhale, and as you exhale, simultaneously bend one OR both elbows. Make sure you have the correct alignment.
  • As you inhale, straighten both your arms (or one arm if doing singles), coming back to the starting position. This counts as one rep.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
