Away from the gym for an extended period of time this holiday season? Instead of letting yourself go, set a personal goal to stay in shape, increase muscle mass and/or lose body fat. Add resistance bands to your weekly workout regime no matter where you are at home or on vacation. Bands are easy to stow in a suitcase or hide away in a drawer. They’re so easy to use and have the same muscle-building power as weights!
