The Best Booty Bands

Resistance bands are an easy way to get a challenging workout without bulky and inconvenient equipment. Booty bands, the evolution of resistance workouts, are perfect for targeting the lower body and core. They’re thicker than standard workout bands and come in higher resistances to activate glutes, hips, quads, and hamstrings. For busy people who need to maximize the benefits of a short workout, they’re perfect for activating multiple muscle groups with small movements. During barre and Pilates classes, adding a booty band to existing exercises can elevate your workout. These bands come in a variety of materials, resistances, and sizes. Many booty bands offer ebooks, video workouts, and online communities to support your workout regimen. When picking a booty band set to augment your workout, don’t forget to consider the full package of accessories that come with it.
