I love simple, effective workouts. Perhaps it's the fact that I want my workouts to be an opportunity to rest my mind and get more in tune with my body. The less equipment, the better. Easier set up? I'm in! A super effective, challenging total body workout with a single dumbbell? Yessss, please.
One of my favourite tools for quick and versatile strength workouts is the super band. It's a big loop shaped piece of exercise tubing which comes in varying levels of tension. I love the 1/2 inch bands because they are super easy to pack on vacations (or to the park with my little one) and I can get a full body workout in using this single tool.
