If you’re like me, you don’t necessarily have a gym close by, or a lot of room to set up your own gym. I’ve decided this summer I want to work on getting more in shape. I’ve tried in the past with not much luck. But I’ve found that what I need is a lot of different things to keep me motivated. I can do one type of excersise 1-2 times a week and I don’t get discouraged as quickly!


I’ve found the best workouts for my arms and upper back/chest is my Shake Weight (which is a killer workout) and URBNFit’s long excersise bands. They come in 3 different strengths so you can start with the super stretchy light band and work up to the harder heavy band.

The light is super stretchy. When I stand in the middle I can easily pull it all the way to my face. It’s a great start that makes you feel like you got a workout but you don’t feel it the next day and have jelly arms where you can’t move them. And when you think that’s too easy you just move up to the next band! I also have issues with shin splints and stress fractures. The heavy band provides the perfect resistance to stretching out my shins and calf’s to help elevate the pain! So in essence, 2 for 1!

This set also comes with a door hanger. It has a marble in one end, that you slip in between the door and door frame and then shut the door to get in some upper shoulder workouts. Its super strong and I’ve had no problems with movement or slippage from it!

So definitely check out these long exercise bands if you’re looking for a new arm workout! And if you have some already, what’s your favorite workout with them?
