33 Resistance Band Exercises You Can Do Literally Anywhere

Rock out with the band! Resistance bands are a great addition to any strength training routine or rehabilitation program and come in a variety of sizes, lengths, and strengths. This portable exercise equipment is also easily stored, making it perfect for home use, hotel workouts, or when you’re tight on space at the gym. Just like free weights, exercise bands come in a range of resistance levels, from highly stretchable to heavy-duty strength.
The most common types of bands include tube bands with handles, loop bands (aka giant rubber bands), and therapy bands. (When in doubt, a fitness professional can help determine which band is right for you, depending on your fitness level and specific workout plan).
For most exercises, try aiming for 8 to 25 reps for 2 to 3 sets per exercise. And if you don’t have a workout plan of your own, try the hundreds of audio workouts available on Aaptiv. Ready, set, streeetch!
