Hi, my name is Tanya Batts, and I'm an instructor at Gold's Gym. I want to show you a few core exercises that you can do with a resistance band. So, I love the resistance bands with the handles, but I'm not going to use the handles for the hands. I'm going to use them kind of, like pedals. So, I'm going to take them, kind of, just and I really like it, they're really safe and secure. So, I don't have to worry about this thing popping off and hitting me in the face. Because they're really on and they're really snug. I'm going to start with kind of, like a teaser. So, I've got the handles, it's nice to have something to hold on to. I want you to come all the way down, lay flat, you've got the band in your hands. All I want you to do is, kind of, like a Pilates teaser. You just want to take a hold of the reins, if you will, and come up and then, go right back down. So, I'm just coming down, one vertebrae at a time. This is really challenging to do without the resistance band. And you're feeling the core, but I think, you really kind of, giving yourself a little bit more stability with the band. So, when you come up, you're balancing on your butt, you're bracing the core, you're bracing the low back. And last one, come up and hold. That's hard to just hold this. I'm going to hold on to these reins, choke up on them, I'm going to flutter kick. So, you really want to get your balance, right there, abs are in, your low back is straight, I'm just flutter kicking. Intense abdominal core workout. Alright, so, I'm going to stop right there, I'm going to criss-cross these legs. All I'm doing, one leg, then the other. I'm liking having something to hold on to, I can focus on getting my low back straight, the abdominals pulled in. Ooh, and it's hard to balance, four, three, two, one. So, those are three great ones. You can also bring them in, send it away, lift it up. So, you really got the resistance bands working hard, two more, last one's kind of fun too, last one. So, you're balancing, it's core string, it's thigh, it's everything. These bands are amazing, cheap but they really get to the core.
