  • Just found your channel and I just have to say I love your enthusiasm and how much you interact with your audience! It made this workout really fun to do!

  • Loved it! This has been the best upper body routine with bands I’ve seen so far here in YouTube. And trust me, quarentene has forced me to watch a lot! Keep it up man

  • 20/10/10/15 for 4 sets and 90 secs rest, for resistance, heavy/ extra-heavy/ extra-heavy / heavy. ( Not about numbers, it is all about Quality)
    Well, I am going to trust him for that.

  • Love it! I can see adding these resistance bands to the chair yoga fitness class that I teach. As always awesome. Now, I have to hunt down a chair to use on my anchor wall system!
    Chest Press, Triceps Extensions, Shoulder Press, Figure 8 Core, Internal Rotation Shoulder, External Rotation Shoulder, Biceps, Lateral Shoulder Raise-TouchDowns, Pectoral Dec Chest Press. Then all of these done seated on the chair. Wow!

  • Just got my bands today. Its been hard with my gym closed so this video ajd channel was a great find. Keep up the great work!����

  • Super annoying that commercials have started interrupting the workout. I had to stop nine times to skip the ad and continue midstream. I always try to let at least one ad run at the start of videos but this may have me trying a different video. Boo.

  • Daniel.. great instruction.. great workout…thanks for sharing this…:-) Can I request isolated body parts workout with dumb bell or kettle bell?

  • Great video! I bought resistance band a month ago and I love it! Your channel provides great resistance video band work out with innovative exercise I haven t seen in other channel.

  • is this workout good for building muscles as well or only strength?the breaks are probably to short for building muscles or?thanks for an anwer:)

  • Just found these videos. Love these workouts as the pace keeps you going and I get a great workout! I will check ouy all your resistance band workouts!

  • Daniel, your resistance band workouts are LIT! I’ve been consistent with your upper and lower body routines the past three weeks and I’m definitely seeing results. Thanks for the uploads and the tribal/electro house mix!

  • The baby is adorable. The fact that you show that you can still train while taking care of the loved one is great. No excuses and the workout was quick and very effective. More parents and even people like myself (a professional athlete, not a parent yet) can enjoy it. Thanks again

  • Awesome teaching-you trained along and adjusted in real time.How you managed to speak as well, well…I can barely type this.
    Top band workout.

  • I liked the workout and will use it, but the wide stance single arm low crossover works the upper chest. I was taught anything low works upper and anything high works lower.

  • I love this workout and I hate it at the same time! It is so brutal but also so effective.
    Important lesson at 37:18 it is great to know when to push yourself but it is even more important to listen to your body and know where to stop before you do some damage.
    Hope you’re working on a new upper body workout Daniel! 😉 Cheers mate!
    PS 28:21 Thanks for some lovely Jazzy B Punjabi mix haha

  • Incredibly underrated video. My arms are burning, and I can’t lift them up entirely, but it’s SO satisfying! Loved it, and I’m definitely adding this (and more of your workouts) to my routine!
    (I was doing this using the lightest band I have and it still took everything out of me rip)

  • I watched this video in its entirety last night, to see if I would be able to follow along. Thanks for the help. I completed it tonight, minus the pushups.

  • Omg! I’m so glaaaad you’ve posted a new one! I’ve been using the video you posted for a year now (the one you said from a couple of years ago). I’m adding it to my regular strength training. I’ve been looking for other resistance band workout from other channels but yours is easier to follow, and I find it more effective. I like your authenticity with the struggle because it is indeed hard. Thank you!

  • Oh man…. awesome workout but this is my new cheat circuit workout. Thanks james this was what I needed since lol this corona closed gyms here in hawaii I been looking for. Perfect cheat resistance band workout

  • I love your workout videos! I make sure I workout to at least 2 of your videos back to back every day. I always feel refresh, motivated, ready to take on any tasks for the day after working out with you.. I’ve been telling all my friends you’re my trainer.. HAHA. Thank you for all your videos!

  • I combine the Teo upper body with the legs and butt workout. I’ve never been stronger, thanks so much! I am ditching the gym! These are way better for me:)

  • Thank you for posting so many new videos during our lockdown in the UK. I’m going to give this a go in a few minutes. I see you’re using lots of different bands. How do I know what resistance band to use?

  • This was a phenomenal routine. Looking forward to more on your take on resistance bands. Thank you for including the routine in the description box. ����

  • Man I can’t wait till you get some EU suppliers, I’ve just snapped a whole set of bands again as not matter what I order from sites I seem to get a really cheap poor quality product:/

  • Another great video, bands are brilliant, a constant resistance and a lot easier on the joints than dumbbells (for me at least), and an even better burn! Thanks Daniel

  • James, have you ever tried doing the push ups without wrapping the bands around your shoulders? It is much harder when you wrap the bands around your upper body under your arm pits.. Try it and see how much harder it can be.. Great video!!

  • Love all your videos, thanks so much for the info about variable resistance training. Found this like many others as a way to work from home in the pandemic, but it’s going to be how I work out from now on. Also, love the random jokes (“this is the part where you kick the water bottle,” “keep holding onto the band so you don’t fall over”)

  • I did it.I’m a 53 years old french women.I have a lot of resistance bands.This workout was so funny and challenging.My shoulders are on fire!

  • I have absolutely no upper body strength but I will be doing this 2x a week during quarantine (or as much as I can….) and see how much strength I can build!! Thank you!!

  • I ‘ve started using you two as a work out with my resistance band work out. I m getting a lot of enjoyment out of your video and benefiting from it.����

  • Oooh this was �� I pumped up a good sweat. I loved the rear delt exercise while activating the lower back with the extension at the same time. Those were KILLER

  • Awesome man, I have been searching like forever for best chest exercises using a band and revoflex equipment. You nailed my search.

  • i have massive respect for you. My arms give out and i thought my body was being a little bitch. I guess it happens to all of us and sometimes we can’t push through it. Much respect. Thanks for the video!

  • Just bought the whole set up bands bag and all ganna try this out being on home lock down and all. I wanna get a good pump without my gym since they closed

  • i’ve had pain in the hamstring and glute for about 1 month, it just began hurting more and more gradually, in the beginning I didn’t pay much attention to it since I could still bend over without too much pain. I train weightlifting. It hurts crazy sometimes when im sitting in class and even standing up, can’t even walk without it hurting whenever I lift my left leg up, the leg where it hurts. I can’t strech it out without it hurting and can’t feel anything when using a lacross ball or foam roller there. It doesn’t hurt when im squatting 200kg though but it hurts when im bending over for example doing deadlifts, what should I do?

  • Hi, thanks for the video. My neck back is tired when I pull the band up. Did I use the wrong muscle or is it supposed to feel like that?

  • I have watched probably 20 videos like this and have been trying for 3 days to feel cheated workouts in my chest. On every rep I’m saying to myself, “shoulders back squeeze chest shoulder blades down” and I still can’t feel anything in my chest, only my shoulders and triceps. Can anyone help please?

  • Thanks for the fantastic videos James

    I’m jealous of your house man, jeez that place looks like a compound. Congrats on your success

  • I was doing the seated close row and the band slipped and hit me in my eye! Ouch! People gotta be careful with this one. I learned my lesson, next time I did it with my feet against a flat surface hahaha. I’m lucky it wasn’t a bad hit but it could have been really bad. I enjoyed the workouts and totally felt the burn (eye included LOL).

  • Ahhhh! Today was my first workout after having my baby and she was right there with me too!! thanks for these videos. They are really helping me get my groove back!

  • I’ve been looking for exercises to use the lighter bands and in the other videos I just didn´t feel anything, but in this one, HOLY SHIT… It was amazing! You just got a new subscriber. Thank you!!!

  • Completely agreee with the other comments, your workouts are great! I’ve seen a lot of other channels since the beggining of the lockdown! You go straight to the point, don’t waste time and go heavy!

  • Thanks for another good workout…i’ll have to talk me into push-ups though. I’m breathing heavy but it’s not like when I was lifting weights.

  • I never thought I would train with resistance bands because resistance bands are for weak girls right? But thanks to Corona I ordered me some bands and I gotta say, there’s no difference between weights and bands. And I love being able to stay home and not have to go to the gym and use gas and money i probably won’t even touch a free weight for quite a while

  • Like many I picked up the resistance bands because of the lock down. The variety of work outs you have here is fantastic. I tend to get board pretty quick.
    I noticed in other videos you have the exercises listed which is helpful getting prepared and not having yup pause the video. Can you add a list to this one?

  • I’m 70 years old and am used to biking nine miles every other day. Now I’ve got you on the days I don’t bike. I’ve looked around You Tube a lot and your program seems to be one that helps me quite a bit. Thank you for all your efforts. Semper fidelis

  • I won’t lie… when you were just running through the motions I considered doing a different video. But then I decided I could use an easier day. Well HA! Joke’s on me! My arms are ON FIRE! I’m now subscribed and look forward to adding your workouts in with routine!

  • Wtf this was incredible!!! I’ve never felt burn like that before and in parts of my arms I didnt think could. Triple ������������

  • Hi.. will these resistance band exercises increase bone density or even prevent bone loss in Osteporosis.?? Doing some of these regularly.. but dont have varieties of resistance bands….Tq

  • Just started the resistance bands and I’m glad I found this channel. This is the second one I started. The first video I watched by you, I thought it would be easy. Nope… kicked my butt

  • You really should show technique, cause if you’re not doing it correctly, you won’t engage the right muscles. I’d hate for someone to get hurt!

    And I think Stroke TV is an Amazon Affiliate. I’ll check.
    Is this the best way to contact you or do you prefer email?

  • Just finished the workout you explain in the video. My chest is on fire… never feel this sensations after a normal chest workout… the non perpendicular stance for the “incline press” is just genius trick!

  • How do you know if you’re pulling a muscle? After doing this on both arms the back of my arms feel like I’ve never stretched them before and quite uncomfortable:(

  • Wow man, honestly the best chest workout I’ve ever done. I used a medium band and a pair of parallettes for the push ups and it burns!! Thanks for the great content James!

  • My mom and I have been using your videos to workout over video chat as she is quarantined up north and I am in our hometown. We both have built so much muscle in the last 5 weeks we have been watching your videos!! She pointed out that she can make her pec muscles move now.. I tried it and I can too lol! First time we have ever been able to do that. Again, thank you!!

  • You always crack me up when you say “oh this isn’t even funny anymore” �� but man I love this workout because I know it has helped me tone up a bit more cx

  • Guys give me the info on your wall anchor exercise system. I’ll promote them in my affiliate stroke support community Second Chance Stroke Survivors and Stroke TV Aaron Stroke TV

  • Please can anyone help me, I’ve had major surgery on my spine (bottom left discs removed, two) over a year ago now.ive got nerve damage in my lower back and left leg nerve damage also for life. I want to get my chest toned up and tummy, am I ok for these? I’m clueless totally. Thank you people stay safe

  • do you have exercises to bring back full range of movement for newly healed metatarsals?…3rd, 4th, 5th….it’s difficult to go heal to toe in a smooth manner when walking after the fractures that occurred 9 weeks ago

  • Hey Bob and Brad!:-) My doctor diagnosed me with sciatica and thats that. Where should i go from here? Im a 25 year old male and workout 3-5 days a week with deadlifts, squats and i do them all! I have some physical tests coming up and cant run, lift, or anything without mild pain from butt to foot… etc… Who can i seek out to help me? (No good info from my doctor):-( press ups work good for one day, but the next day i start over with my pain! So frustrating!!

    Thanks for all the info and videos! Im all lost here.

  • Okay dam James has gotten WAY BIGGER. I am comparing him now and before. Looks like he gained 20 pounds. Dude looks 230 to 245 before he looks 210 to 215.

    Problem is I’m 298 and yes fit and yes have used the juice. I am curious to see someone like Jay Culter James good friend try this or someone at that weight.

  • This is exactly the video that i needed to workout at home with bands…..great content man!…will surely wait for more of your videos in the future. I hope to see a warm-up and cool-down video as well on this channel in the future specifically for band workout. ����

  • Thank you so much! I loved the workout! Perfect for a beginner like me but easily made more difficult as I progress. Loving the cute Cash as well. You guys are great! Looking forward to trying more workouts!

  • Thank you so much for this video. I’ve just been diagnosed with osteo arthritis in right hip. I have the ‘wall’ now I know how to use it while sitting in a chair.

  • for the lumbosacral spine, another way is to bend at the waist, put the band under both feet, decrease the band length by grabbing it away from the handles and extend your trunk

  • Love this!! Appreciate the fact that you kept talking us through the work out, this is a REAL KILLER!! Was struggling even with my lightest band. WIll be doing this regularly from now on. <3

  • Tried this out today. One of the best chest workouts I’ve ever had. It something about the bands that makes it click for me, I find where I’m able to connect to the right muscle and really feel it! Great vid. Totally subscribed for more!

  • Gotta say these resistant bands may look easy but they’re not. I can see a total difference in the definition of my chest. Thanks for this man.

  • WOW! That was a great workout! I am following you for sure! I just received my resistance bands and was looking for videos to start strength training. So glad I came across yours!

  • I’m glad to read the comments and see that everyone says it’s a very tough workout, I was afraid I was just too out of shape and weak to do this. My shoulders and arms are burning but this tells me the workout is super effective! I will stick to it!

  • Got my bands a couple of weeks ago to get some work in during the quarantine. This is the first video that really worked for me. Saved

  • This was an amazing workout, thank you! Really easily adjusted to resistance cables if you don’t have the continuous loop style of resistance band. I wish there was a warm up and cool down/stretch in the video too, since I don’t really know what I’m doing, but that seems to be a consistent thing on youtube workout videos.

  • Whoa! I usually use the black band for other people’s workouts. I had the use the lime green one today!! I will definitely feel this one tomorrow, and I’m so grateful.

  • I loved this. I felt the burn, i tried to use the heavy band at first haha! But the light band was good enough�� love from singapore xx

  • Enjoying the content James. Have used light bands for awhile to do face pulls as a warmup and heavier bands for good mornings during warmup. Such a simple thing, but never thought to wear gloves since I have never lifted withy them. Will definitely try it as that has discouraged me from doing lots of reps of rows and pull downs with them. Can I ask how come you don’t make an X with the band on your back when doing push-ups? Just for speed between sets?

  • Killer killer killer workouts, I’ve been doing them 5x a week. I bought bands just to do these and holy F they’re intense and wonderful!

  • Omg!!! ������������… Pilates Lover over here.. these are so good!!!! never thought of using the small bands.. soooo good!! Thanks!!!

  • I love your workouts, very diversified on your channel. I appreciate you both workout together even with the little. Keep them coming

  • Cannot stand these camera people (not sure if youre still using them) or the editors. Zoom in WAY too much, moving the camera, the zoom so far in it misses part of the work out. Keep it still, steady, several angles, this isnt an action movie for fucks sake.

  • niiiice workout! my upper body is pumped right now! and thank you for your honesty, I really liked that. one question: is there a chance to get the music (some dj set/medley?!) in the background? for example via a retransfer link? would be amaaazing!

  • My husband and I have been doing this exact video what feels like every day �� he is SO determined to get through the whole video perfectly lol. We know all your little phrases before you say them because we have watched it so many times haha

  • This is a tougher (and I’m sure more effective) workout than all the ones I’ve tried by huge guys with huge muscles. As someone who has taken up weight training after 65 I can vouch for the fact that muscles don’t necessarily atrophy as we get older. I have developed more muscle in the last five years than I’ve ever had in my life by working out at the gym a couple of times a week. This workout is every bit as serious as anything I’ve ever done in the gym. Thanks so much for this.

  • Hello! New to resistance bands but I’m looking into purchasing some as they seem to be the most versatile and cost effective to use during lockdown. What are the longer resistance bands called (I can only find the shorter ones) and does anyone have any recommendations for brands or anything? Awesome video! Can’t wait to try it out myself!

  • Something I discovered during today’s workout, regarding 6:35 Wide Stance Single Arm Low Pushover, at the contraction point, I twisted my wrist so my knuckles face forward, and I feel like I was able to contract just a little more. Try it out.

  • This killed my shoulders!…in a good way! Love all the videos Daniel. I’m limited with at home equipment during this crazy time so these bands and the body weight and kettlebell workouts are great!

  • I’ve been working out for about 6 years now and never used resistance bands. I’ve needed to stay in shape but struggled due to lockdown and this video is the most helpful thing I’ve come across. You rule!

  • That baby though ������, he’s all am seeing, i actually had to make a real effort to do the workout and not just drool at the baby. Nice work out though

  • this was great. looking for as intense a chest workout as i could find with bands instead of pushups only. ok to do all of these and repeat a couple times? don’t want to over work and want to have proper rest in between, thoughts? thanks!

  • Could you maybe mention which muscles the exercises are working? Upper chest, lower chest, etc. I find such things to be beneficial ^.^

  • This video was fantastic! Loved that you didn’t have to attach to anything. What band weights were you using? I only have a 50lb. Some of those exercises were nearly impossible. Do you have a video for biceps?

  • Great vid, I’m a first timer resistance bands user. Struggled with the shoulder matrix as couldn’t get the form quite right. But enjoyed the rest, thank you!

  • Solid workout m8 and short enough to do in the morning before work. I had never even thought of some of the exercise variations you do.

  • Clear demonstration and instructions. Got a nice workout. I am not going to watch again. His personality is not so great for video.I was kind of embarrassed for him. And why can’t the female talk?

  • Love this! Theres not alot of workouts on YouTube with resistance bands for upper body, at least not a complete workout like this. Most are for legs and booty but u cant have a banging bottom half with flabby arms lol. Thanks guys!

  • I like your exercise is just starting to work out with resistance bands but I’m using the flat resistance bands can we do the same workouts with these bands?

  • Isnt a rep scheme of 20/15/15 more oriented around endurance? What about size and strength wouldn’t it be better to stick to like 12 reps or so

  • I have been using bands for strength training a lot during the last 8 months and have made serious gains. Your content is great. Will definitely add some of these to my routine.

  • 1:05 Standing Incline Chest Press
    2:28 Lying Decline Chest Press
    4:20 Staggered Hand Push Ups
    6:05 Wide Stance Single Arm Low Pushover
    9:34 Standing High Cable Crossover
    11:25 Close Arm Band Push Ups

  • I get you have to explain your workouts but you explain way to much sometimes. Just get to the workout and make the videos shorter…. no one wants to sit thru 40 minutes of a workout video just to see different variation of resistance bang workouts. You have a market that can grow right now. Make it more interesting and less information.

  • Good pace, My husband and I are working out together so having female and male perspective is great for us. We are both over 60 and we can adjust the intensity and band tension for us. We will be trying another Achy Peak workout soon. Bonus having a cute baby to look at.

  • I just bought a set of bands and found your channel and love the information, the breakdown of correct form of exercises and just looking in awe, and my mum walks in and listens to two sentences and was like, I think this is for men, it would be different for girls….
    I don’t know when this stereotype is going to go away, I want to go bang my head somewhere…

  • Tell me this guy built his physique using these bands and not in the gym doing bench press, dead lifts, and squats, and I’ll cancel my gym membership and never look back!

  • Bought some resistance bands for this lock down. It didn’t come with any instruction or workouts. Found your video and really enjoyed it!! Thank you for sharing!

  • Hi there.
    Thank you for great inspiration and information in your videos. I have been doing strenght-training with weights, kettlebells, bodyweight, big tires, sleges and more for years. Recently my joints have started to fuck things up though (had surgery in shoulder from damage gotten in the army, and my hip is probably next.). I have tried a little with some resistancebands now, and feel like this kind of resistance is kinder to my joints, and I just bought the UnderSun band kit. Looking forward to starting with some propper bands. �� Again, thank you for great inspirarion. ��

  • Thanks for a great “stay at home” quarantined awesome workout. I rewound after each series and did the bands again so got double whammy workout. Thanks for making it fun. I need the push and extra motivation. Bands look easy but they are tough as heck. Keep up the great work — I join you on alternating days of my indoor trainer cycle days. I’ve always worked out (yes when I was pregnant too) — my girls are 25 and 27 and know that working is just part of life because they grew up with it. I’m glad so keep that baby in the gym whenever it’s safe and you can. It will then be in his blood. Love you guys. Christy indoors in Texas

  • Nicola: go down to lighter band if your struggle
    Me: I AM ALREADY ON LOWER BAND!! my shoulder are burning an honestly felt like I was doing it properly. Day 1

  • This was killer!!! I am so happy I found your channel! I loved your playlist too! Can’t wait to try another one of your workouts tomorrow!!!

  • can you do some for booty hips thighs and legs i do like doing yourupper body toning work out just wondering if you could do some for toning bottom body

  • Asking advice from anyone that’s been doing resistance bands workouts for a while, when the gyms were open I was doing push pull days 6 with resistance bands workout however am I better doing say chest day, leg day, back day, shoulder day whilst mixing in some biceps and triceps. Any help would be appreciated

  • OMG, i thought i had strong arms until i tried this workout! I usually use my heavy red band but had to go between light and X light, which I’v never used before, LOL! Thanks for a great workout!

  • Yay �� awesome ���� workout ��️‍♀️. So glad I found you. You have such a unique personality. You had me sweating, definitely challenging and laughing too. Love the music. RJ from ����

  • I have an issue where I need to add more weight to feel it at all without 15-20 reps but I’m light enough that the bands pull me backwards because of the tension. Is there a fix for this?


    They are awesome i love them so much because they are simple to you and you can gain great muscle. I love them so much. I got my at trainhome shop (check on google)��

  • Im all for the bands.. the only thing im struggling with is should i buy these or a set of 40-50 dollars different name brand type of bands. I dont know if i want to spend 131 dollars loool.. if anyone can help thanks

  • Amazing video. The most informative I’ve found on Youtube. I only have one question. How many times should I do this workout a day?

  • So, after weeks of lockdown and no gym I ordered a quality set of resistance bands. I had to try something. I have just tried using these and this was my first routine, and if anyone is in doubts whether to buy a (quality) set let me say, I struggled to complete this. I’m writing this comment the morning after and I have that lovely training ache I’ve so missed. I was sceptical if these would be of any benefit but I really feel like I have had a session. Thanks for your video, even though I only stumbled upon it due to covid19 crisis. I’ve just gone through the rest of your videos and put together routines for back, shoulders, legs, and arms. ��

  • You guys are amazing! Loved this video. Did it along with your band workout for lower body and chest. Your videos are fun, torch calories and your little one definitely adds an extra element of cuteness and fun! God bless your family!

  • I could use some help, the bands keep moving to my neck or slipping down in my back when doing push ups. Any tips on how to keep these where they should be? Also I get some wrist pain because the bands pull my hand backwards, any way to fix that?

  • Just got mine today. Sadly I got home super late from work so I only had a chance to give them a check but it is very apparent that the resistance is real.

  • Thank god for this playlist! Gyms have been closed for so long and I finally caved and got myself resistance bands. Now I’m trying to figure out how to get serious with them after two weeks of playing around and three months of sitting around!

  • I just want to say thank you!! This band workout is badass. I am a true believer now. It was intense, pump was amazing and the overall core involvement kept the heart rate up. I absolutely loved it

  • been doing this once a day for the last days. Can definitely tellt he difference. Keep drinking water and doing some form of cardio in the day

  • Typical. A 38 minute long video for about 3 minutes of actually doing the exercises thus showing us nothing ultimately. How has this guy got this many views

  • I got a pair a week ago so I can stay in shape during the Corona lol. They have worked well so far but I can’t wait to go back to actual dumbbells. These worked great for me and seem to be the best value out of the 2 different sets I got. I think they’re also on sale

  • Great workout James! The one thing I find hard however is stabilizing the bands around the arm to be stabilized by the shoulder as well

  • Oh for fuck sake!! I was looking forward to this.. until he revealed the resistance band. I have the rubber-band type bands not the ones with handles on them. NEXT!

  • Do I always have to train the same side first for the individual exercises? for example first 3 sets of 15 repetitions with the right arm and then 3 sets with the left arm? And if so, how many seconds break between the sets?

    Or can I do the sets alternately with my right and left arm, so that the unused arm has a break during each?

    I would appreciate an answer 😉

    Great video series. Keep it up!:)

  • As gym instructor I just now during the pandemic, discovered how effective are these pieces of rubber. At least 90 proc of weights exercises I can convert to resistance bands exercises. Literally gym in my pocket. By the way I can hear that you hate cardio bro 😉

  • The best by far follow along resistance band workout on here!! Please do more while we are in lock down with no gyms? See you soon

  • Start: “Oh, cool, I’ll start with medium.”

    35 seconds in: “Ooh, better switch to light for this one.”

    90 seconds in: “OK, just hand me the x-light one over there.”

  • Is it okay if I show your stroke videos on Stroke TV once a week? Kinda a prerecorded show?
    I can use your last video using wall anchors for wheelchair bound people.
    Do you happen to have a band workout for walking stroke survivors?

  • This is awesome and has been a lifesaver with the gym closed. Does DJ have anything with either resistance bands or a medicine ball for the abs? I LOVE the length and intensity of DJ’s workouts.

  • When you are doing band type workouts, you have to get to the point where it hurst so much, you think you are at failure… that’s the point where the set BEGINS. You have to go to “failure” and then beyond when you are doing light resistance such as this.
