We’re calling all workout fiends for this week’s exercise. A full-body standing cardio sequence using the Total Body Band … we’re out of breath thinking about it already, but the sense of accomplishment we will feel afterward is what keeps us on track.
Put on your favorite fitness set and some comfortable and supportive sneakers, turn up the volume to your favorite pump-up playlist, and just get in the groove. Once you’re in the rhythm of each move, you won’t even notice the reps go by, you’ll just be in a state of flow.
In the below video, co-founder of Total Body Band, Melody Rae Kandil, shows the Poosh team four ways to use the at-home exercise band for a full-body standing cardio workout. So, ready, set, go!
And if you want more ideas on how to use the $55 band, add this booty blast routine to your at-home rotation.

*For all moves, keep your knees slightly bent.
The Move: Jumping Jacks with Front Lateral Raise to Side Lateral Raise
How to: Grab the handle and raise the hand forward as the legs push out. Repeat by bringing the hand in as the legs come together. On the second jump, push the hands out to the side for a shoulder raise while opening the legs.
The Move: Curtsy Lunge with Bicep Curl to Squat Hold and Combo Punch
How to: Curtsy lunge by swinging the leg back and simultaneously curling your arms. Power back to the center and drop low for a squat, followed by two straight-arm punches. Work the other side by swinging the leg back for another curtsy lunge in the opposite direction and curl simultaneously, followed by another squat and two straight-arm punches.
The Move: Lateral Kicks to Kickbacks
How to: Quarter-squat with one stationary leg and swing the moving leg to the side. After 10 reps, maintain the quarter-squat and swing the leg back, focusing on the gluteus maximus.
The Move: Lunge with Forward Press
How to: Lunge the leg backward and create a counterbalance with the shoulders by pushing the arm straight out in front of you.
