Flex Band Exercises?

Ok, so I’m going to thailand in a week and I’ve bought some flex bands. I am going to make a program to gain strength while I am there. I’ve already sussed out a few top moves with the just the bands alone like:

Good mornings

Sumo DL’s (really hard because you pull both lines of the elastic and not one)

Squats

shoulder press

lateral movements with the arms

Rows

Bicep curls (WTF?!)

Tricep press

adds on weight to push ups

etc.

Let me know if you know of any other high quality ones.

In the end I’ll likely be doing a higher volume/rep body weight training and working on my 1 arm push-ups and my pistols. I bought the bands to be sure to get a good back workout (hard to get in a hotel room).

let me know. thanks in advance.

Good luck.

Yeah I liked that article but i wont have access to the racks or anyhting to tie the band to. So i need stand alone exercises. Thanks though.

I’m checking EFTS right now.
