Fabric and latex resistance bands – otherwise known as booty bands, loop bands or glute bands – are must-have additions to your workout gear. They’re small and lightweight, easy to transport, and can pack a serious punch when it comes to adding resistance to countless moves at home or the gym. Now, we all know where booty bands got their name – they can be great for strengthening the glutes and lower body – but there are so many more ways to use booty bands to level up your workouts!

✨ Upper body warm-ups and exercises
We all know booty bands can be used for a ton of booty-focused moves, but what about our upper body? Moves like pull aparts, plank tap outs, even bicep curls and chest presses can all be achieved – and made a little more difficult – through the use of a band. Experiment with some of your usual fave upper body moves, seeing if you can find a way to swap out a weight for a band while achieving the same range of motion!
✨ Achieving a full push-up
If you’re working towards achieving a full push-up on your toes and find yourself struggling to get all the way there, using a booty band might be just the trick! Place the band around your upper arms, just above the elbows, and try doing a push-up – you’ll notice that the band against your chest relieves some of the pressure on your core and assists you on the way back up. This hack can help you build towards achieving an unassisted push-up in no time!
✨ Ideal for travel & working out on-the-go this summer!
Booty bands make it easy to create dynamic full body and targeted workouts, no matter where in the world you are – they’re small and lightweight enough to pack in your vacation carry-on, or to throw in your tote to take your workout to the park this summer.

✨ Glute activation
Not only are bands great for working out the booty, they’re super useful during lower body warm-ups as well. A killer move for activating those glutes: place a band around your ankles and do a set of twenty double toe taps on each side – you’ll start to really feel the burn on the outer glutes around your fifteenth rep! Glute activation is key for warming up the booty before putting your lower half to work.
Booty bands are a great alternative to heavy and expensive gear – if you’re just starting to build up your strength and don’t have access to a full range of dumbbells and costly equipment, add weight through inexpensive resistance bands! By doubling and tripling the bands up, you can achieve heavy weight loads across a variety of moves.
