Let's Band Together

The top exercises that use a resistance band

Have you ever used a theraband before? Let me tell you a little bit about them - because I think they are just awesome!

One of the exercises I wrote about, and you can find the post here, is glute activation. Since working with Dr. Shane McCann, I’ve been a fanatic about getting stronger glutes.
