I love resistance bands because they're easy to take with me places if I feel like working out somewhere other than my living room and they are inexpensive and a great addition to any home gym. The good thing about resistance bands too, is they can accommodate a lot of exercises and strength training moves. You can work out any part of your body with resistance bands and they come in a variety of types, tightnesses (for more resistance, so they are customizable to your level of fitness) and colors (because, fun). I have some virtually fit in my pocket. I've created this resistance band ab workout to be simple to follow and depending on your fitness level, you can make it harder or easier.

Because I have chronic pain, Muscle Recovery is super important to me to continue on my fitness journey. I need to find ways to counteract the muscle spasms I often get and not feel like a truck hit me. I discovered rollers last year and I found that they really help with Muscle Recovery much faster than I anticipated. What's great about rollers too, is they can help by increasing circulation before or after a workout. I like to do them as part of my warm up, but I also use them afterwards if I'm having a particularly Tight muscle day or on my rest days to help speed up recovery. Here are some tips for using a roller for Muscle Recovery.
