We’ve all been there. It’s day 12 of a new health routine that seemed totally doable at the beginning, but now, it seems as appealing as a trip to the DMV. Maintaining the motivation you need to achieve the results you want can be challenging, but the trick is to incorporate little strategies to boost your physical and mental energy so you’ll feel excited or at least be able to complete each day of the plan. That’s where resistance bands come in!

Often considered one of the most fun fitness tools out there, resistance bands are inexpensive, portable, joint-friendly, and great for safely building total-body strength. Made from ultra-thin, ultra-stretchy material like rubber or latex, they typically weigh less than a pound but can generate dozens of times their own weight. Resistance bands are a great way to get your daily exercise in—especially if you are intimidated by strength training—and (fun fact!) a single band can even mimic the effects of using a whole range of dumbbells—talk about a heavy hitter.

While resistance band exercises are accessible to all types of trainees, from beginners to pros, it helps to have a step-by-step guide you can follow to achieve your fitness goals. You’ll get all of the information you need on resistance band training and more with Prevention’s new book, Easy Resistance Band Slim-Down. This ultimate guide walks you through the principles of resistance band training, from light resistance training days, where you’ll focus on improving the way your body moves, to all-out resistance training days, where you’ll perform the most challenging exercises. The best part? Each exercise in this comprehensive guide is broken down into bite-sized chunks that can be completed in only 18 minutes!
