Women Fitness|November 2020
Resistance bands are an excellent training tool.

They’re versatile, easy to pack, and relatively cheap to buy. While you can work your whole body with a band, we’ve lined up six great resistance-band exercises for toning legs that you can do just about anywhere.

Lateral Band Walk

Place a looped resistance band above your knees and sit in a partial squat position.

With your arms forward, chest lifted, and knees bent, lead with your heel and take 8 steps to your left. Make sure your feet stay parallel the entire time.

Repeat in the opposite direction, making sure to keep your abs drawn in.

Seated Banded Leg Extensions
