Five strength training moves to do with a resistance band

Strength training has numerous benefits, such as reversing the muscle loss that happens as you age, boosting your metabolism, and decreasing belly fat. These exercises call for continuous-loop resistance bands.

Everything you should know before you try a rowing machine workout class

In all honesty, I can't 100 percent truthfully claim to be a rowing machine virgin. But considering my first experience with a rowing machine workout took place on a weekend morning several years ago, following an indulgent night of cheese bread and alcohol, I'm going to go ahead and claim a clean slate where this particular workout is concerned. Since I was solely concerned with remaining conscious rather than the workout itself on that fateful morning, I figured a redo was in order, especially considering rowing machine workouts are quickly gaining popularity, cultivating an almost untouchable reputation where bang-for-your-buck impact, results, and yes, even fun are concerned.
