Band Assisted Workout #3: Upper Body Part 2

Resistance bands are a very versatile tool for those who don't have a lot of space or who are constantly on the go.  I even take mine to the gym with me to do resistance training between sets of weight training.  It adds a fat burning element to your routine due to the constant resistance you are working against. It can also be a fun escape for those who are looking for an after lunch or during lunch pick me up. The third band assisted workout in this series follows up with an additional upper body workout. This time we are focusing on the incline movements.  If using the door hook for the bands (GoFit Series), it should be placed on the bottom hinge of the door.  This enables us to hit the back, chest, shoulders and abs from a different angle as the previous upper body workout.  The total workout should take you about 15 minutes to complete four times through. Upper Body Incline Workout Do four times through Incline Rows 3 x 12 Upright Rows 3 x 12 Incline Chest Press 3 x 12 Incline Trunk Twists 3 x 12 each side Make sure you choose a resistance that will make it hard to get the last couple of reps on each set.  For this workout I used a 30 lb resistance band with handles.  Check out the video below to see how to do the first round of exercises.
