Hot Girl Summer Prep with These Gym Resistance Band Workouts For Women
If you’re ready for summer and to live the best Hot Girl Summer, you need to try these gym resistance band workouts for women! These workouts are the ones I live by to be bikini body ready (although every body is bikini body ready!).
Why Use Gym Resistance Bands in Workouts?
Gym resistance bands are a great addition to any workout because they provide an extra challenge for bodyweight exercises, but without the pressure on the joint compared to using weights. They can also help target specific muscles.
When you use gym resistance bands in your workout, you’re doing a resistance workout. Resistance training should be incorporated into your weekly workout routine if you want to reap the benefits like:
- Becoming stronger and toning muscles
- Improving bone density
- Decreasing the risk of heart disease and the rate of muscle atrophy
There are so many additional benefits of owning a resistance band (an affordable, easy way to mix up your workout routine, replacing barbells and dumbbells, and so much more)! Plus, resistance training improves your strength, health, endurance, and fitness. So try these gym resistance band inspired moves for your next resistance workout and to get ready for this Hot Girl Summer!
Gym Resistance Band Workout For Legs & Booty
If you’re ready for strong legs and a bubble butt this summer, you need a glute band! This specific gym resistance band is perfect for leg and glute exercises. These are my go-to leg and booty moves with my glute resistance band:
- Hip Thrusts
- Glute Abduction Exercises
- Lateral Band Walk
- Glute Bridge
Squats are simple, yet the most effective lower body exercise when done right! Doing a squat activates the ankle, knee, hip, and spine mobility. This is important to have as you age because it’s the same action as getting up from the ground.
There are several benefits to having strong legs and glutes, besides looking and feeling strong. Some of the additional benefits are:
- A lowered risk of falls and limb injury
- Improved endurance performance, speed, and power
- Increased lean body mass
If you’re already feeling strong with those leg exercises, try some single leg exercises! Single leg exercises can help you gain flexibility and stability at the same time. Plus, our bodies aren’t balanced on both sides so single leg exercises can help bring balance out both sides.

Gym Resistance Band Workout For Replacing Weights
My long bands are another great gym resistance band to have on hand in the gym because it replaces the need for dumbbells and barbells. If you’re not wanting to drive to the gym or don’t have the set up at home, all you need is a long band to get a strong workout. Replace the weights with a gym resistance band for these exercises:
- Squats (dumbbell squat, squat to overhead press)
- LAT Pulldown
Gym Resistance Band Workout For Arms & Shoulders
With those same long and glute bands, you can work your arms too! Popular arm exercises with gym resistance bands are:
- Arm curls
- Shoulder Raises and Overhead Press
- Lateral Arm Raises
- Seated Back Row
- One Arm Row
- Chest Crossover and Press
You’ll be sure to feel the burn with those moves! And with strong arms and shoulder come several benefits:
- Easier to perform everyday tasks
- Increase results in any workout
- Arm exercises are the most flexible types of training
