Making it work

I didn’t get a chance to film this one, but I wanted to share it because it’s a great example of adapting to what’s available. My hotel only had a few Med balls and bands this past week which had me worried. I’ve been so focused on weights and Kettlebells lately I can’t even remember the last time I used resistance bands. So I thought, why not!

It’s easy to get caught up in the world of feeling like every workout needs to leave you in a pile of sweat and fatigued. What I found using the bands is that it provided a perfect level of moderate intensity work that helped me move well but didn’t leave me shaking.

The workout I have above is just an example, but basically I picked 3 resistance band exercises that filled the categories of push, pull, squat and rotate. Then I added in a core exercise for good measure. 6 times around and you’ll feel awesome!

On another note, congrats to the Seattle U women on their second place finish today. It was so fun to watch!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork. Check out more at our website
