Looks like it’s another Monday Chest Day. 😉
This workout focuses on the chest and biceps, using a resistance band to complete high reps, to get a little lactic acid rushing through those muscles. This is the kind of workout that really causes your muscles to ache, but remember, keep your mind on the muscle and use that soreness as strength. Passing through the lactic acid threshold is exactly what you want so don’t give up!
Since the reps are higher in this workout, you’re aiming to use a resistance band which you can complete 20+ reps (depending on the exercise) I used a medium resistance, this causes my biceps to feel the resistance for the final 2 – 3 reps to the point where I’m struggling. This is good. This is how you know you’re using the right weight.

Using a resistance band is a great way to change up your regular workouts. They are super affordable and can even be packed in your suitcase if you’re working out while away from home. There really aren’t any excuses why you can’t workout away from home if you own a resistance band.
Well, of course, that’s if you want to, not every vacation calls for workouts 😉
