Whether you travel often, or your busy schedule doesn’t allow for consistent fitness classes or gym workouts, it can be challenging for many of us to stick to a fitness routine.

Aside from a home yoga practice, one of the easiest ways to get a great workout in anytime, anywhere is with resistance bands.

Resistance bands are small, lightweight, and easy to use. They are also super easy to travel with.

Even though this article focuses on workouts for building glutes and your core, there are so many ways to get creative and use resistance bands for a full-body workout.
