Sure, we love to use mini-bands for carving out an amazing butt, but what about our upper body? The thought of picking up mini-bands over dumbbells or a straight bar may seem foreign or out of your comfort zone, but they are lightweight, versatile and add some great resistance to your workout. Plus, the bands are so small, you can do your workout just about anywhere. The next time you want to feel the burn and challenge your upper body, pick up some bands and try these moves.
