Resistance Band and Jump Rope Workout For Upper Body

The Perfect Workout You Can Do at Home or on a Trip

The following post was originally featured on Peanut Butter Fingers and written by Julie Fagan, who is part of POPSUGAR Select Fitness.

Grab a jump rope and a resistance band because I have a sweaty upper-body workout for you today!

This is a great workout to keep in your back pocket when you're traveling since throwing a resistance band and jump rope in your suitcase won't take up much room and you'll have two great pieces of exercise equipment on hand for travel-friendly workouts like this one! The entire workout can easily be done at home, in a hotel room (just be mindful of the jumping!), outside, or at the gym.

You can also modify this workout if you do not have a jump rope. Simply substitute high knees or jumping jacks in place of the 30 seconds of jump rope in between the resistance band exercises. And if you don't have a resistance band but have access to dumbbells, feel free to make that swap as well!
