Exercises that you can do at home only by owning an elastic band

Do you only have one band at home? Here we leave you five simple exercises that can be done in the comfort of your home.

The first thing you have to know is that elastic (or resistance) bands allow you to improve muscle mass and improve strength.

Their main advantages are that they are cheap, light (easy to carry), and easy to find.

The website El Universo shared a series of exercises that people can do in their day with bands:

Front squats: Requires long elastic bands. For the position: step with both feet the inside of the band, pass it behind the shoulders and hold it with the ends of your hands.

With each repetition, we must stretch the elastic band and control the descent through the strength of the quadriceps, femoral and gluteal muscles.

Glute Bridge: Place the elastic band just above your knees, lie on your back and place your feet flat on the ground so that your knees are bent at a 90º angle.

Spread your legs to make tension with the band and raise your hips to shoulder height, align your knees and contract your glutes. The goal is to keep your legs apart and hold the tension of the elastic band throughout the exercise.

Side squat: Let's go with another squat exercise. Place the rubber band on your thighs, above the knees, and spread your legs until the rubber band is taut. From there, you just have to do the exercise.

When lowering into the squat, you'll want to spread your legs out to the side with a wide stride.

Glute kick:  Get on all fours with your hands and knees on the floor and stretch one of your legs back; so that the elastic band is stretched. Then, lift your straight leg to engage your gluteal muscles with a straight leg back kick.
