I think I would have enjoyed this video more if I had a resistance band with handles. As a Pilates instructor, I have a ton of resistance bands lying around, but none of them have handles. So I had to get creative, and it didn't work out so well. One day, I'll get a band with handles and try this video again.
This was a nice work out. I haven't done anything like this before. I usually walk on the treadmill or use my band to do butterfly type chest exercises. This was a good way to get me moving towards a new type of activity.
The band was hard to balance at first, and I wasn't smart enough to wear shoes lol. Next time, wearing shoes.
Just a little hint for you guys, be sure to wear sneakers with the resistance band around your foot, and slide your foot forward along the floor -- it will tighten the handle around the largest part of your sneaker for a nice fit. If you have really small feet, then you may want to do the loop option instead.
Wish there were more resistance band videos!!!! :) I'm loving these.
I had an awful time trying to keep the band around my foot. I put the plastic handle part on top of my foot instead of the bottom. That helped a little bit but I couldn't keep the tube from crossing over the top of my foot. Not worth all of the effort it takes to maneuver the tube.

Balance is one of my worst nightmares. At almost 69 years old, it is something I have to work at a lot, but the good news is if you work at it, you can improve it. Thanks, Coach Nicole!
