Resistance Bands are wonderful tools to have in your arsenal. Dumbbells and barbells are great training tools, but they allow for very specific, fixed exercises. One of the benefits of the band is the portability. You can take your workout wherever you go! But don’t let the lightness fool you. These bands can be challenging and you’ll feel the results of your work the next day! Another benefit in using the resistance band is the range of exercises that can be done. This resistance band lunge with overhead press gives an extra piece of resistance to the work in your legs and glutes as they press up against the resistance of the band. In addition, the shoulders get a surprising challenge that is different from the feeling you get when you push weights.

When performing the Resistance Band Lunge With Overhead Press remember to keep abs very tights and concentrate on good posture through your spine. In addition, keep your shoulders pulled down away from your ears – no scrunching! Remember that bands come in a variety of tensions based on the color you buy. You may need thicker, tighter band if the exercise isn’t challenging enough and a thicker band to make it harder.
