The COVID-19 crisis has made working out at home more of a necessity than just an alternative to going to the gym. With lockdowns in place and social distancing guidelines being enforced, most gyms and fitness centres are closed. This can make it more difficult than ever to stay in shape and avoid the dreaded COVID-19 weight gain.

     Keeping that in mind, with some simple workout tools, you can get a full body workout at home and it doesn’t take much time. So, grab your Elite Home Workout Resistance Bands and let’s take a look at our full body resistance band workout.
