Outdoor Lower Body Band Workout

Outdoor Lower Body Band Workout

My daughter and I went to the Santa Monica Beach last week, which happens to be home to the original Muscle Beach.  Well, any self respecting trainer would have to do some kind of workout there!  I grabbed a loop band, which I could literally stick in my pocket and this workout was born.  

This lower body workout can be done anywhere, you could even do it at the park while you are waiting at soccer practice!  The workout can also be tailored to meet whatever time constraints you have, and the option of adding a cardio element will bump up the caloric burn significantly.  

So grab a band and head outdoors to do this Outdoor Lower Body Band Workout!
