You can exercise your whole body with exercise bands, but they are especially good for some exercises. Do biceps curls by stepping on the far end of the band. For triceps overhead extensions, hold the band behind you with your free hand. For pec flies, place the band behind your back and grab it at both ends, or far enough in to create tension. Rows work well with bands. Loop the band over your feet or anchor it to a doorknob. Do a leg press one leg at a time, holding a heavy band in front of you with both hands while seated. For abs, tie the band to the back of a chair, bring the ends over your shoulders, hold and curl forward.
