Chair & Resistance Band Exercises

Posted in Core/Fitness,How-To,Pilates Bands,Stability Ball / Yoga Ball by Harmony on July 9, 2010

The benefit of using a Resistance Band is that you can adjust the resistance level so easily. This allows you to quickly alter the resistance level from one exercise to another, or to increase the resistance over time as your strength improves. All with the same product! Although this video shows these exercises being done with Resistance Tubes, you could also use the elastic resistance bands, which are also called Pilates Bands.

Ready to increase the intensity of these exercises?  Try substituting your stable four-legged chair with a Stability Ball to add a balance challenge to these same routines.  You may wish to start with a wall or chair nearby as you learn to balance yourself when doing these exercises.

These video offers 22 minutes of workouts for your arms, core, and legs…all while in a sitting position.
