Resistance band chest and back exercises

This is a form of superset training, training opposite muscles on the upper body is important for balance, I normally complete one of these sessions per week, two exercises, three sets of max reps.  When running I normally  pop the resistance band in my pocket and stop to complete an upper body workout on route, it’s easy to find a bar or in this case a tree guard, always check the surface is smooth first and watch out for nails in the wood.

I completed these exercises  both with a medium strength resistance band .

reps x 40 and sets x 3 = 120 reps of t

Forward fly chest press
