Posted on

An Abs Workout with Resistance Bands can be really efficient to build nice abs. It can even be more effective than the abs bodyweight exercises we are used to seeing. And that's really interesting...

Of course, you won't get this result with just one workout. I'm sorry if I've disappointed you...🙄

Your belly is usually the first place where fat is stored. For women, add thighs and buttocks to the equation.

So it's not surprising to see a lot of people with a belly, even if the rest of their body looks thin.

And unfortunately, it's very difficult to get rid of it. The first rule of thumb is to create a caloric deficit without starving yourself.

But there are some extremely effective exercises to help you reach your goal much faster.

And the good news is that you can do them at home or on the go with light, easy-to-carry equipment.

Abs workout with resistance bands:

If you regularly do intense exercises with resistance bands for abs, you will burn more calories.

In addition, you will strengthen your abdominal strap muscles, including those below your fat layer.

This will, therefore, have 2 virtuous effects for you:

  • Your stomach will become flat again, even if you still have a few extra pounds...
  • You will lose more weight by increasing the caloric deficit.
In addition, the advantage of concentrating on the abdominal strap is that the muscles involved are very resistant and recover faster than other muscle groups.


This is why you can do an abs workout with resistance bands almost every day, whereas you normally have to rest the other muscle groups 48 to 72 hours between each session.

If you don't have one at the moment, I can only recommend a kit of natural latex resistance bands for their price and durability.
