Working out at home for obvious reasons. I bought a set of highly rated exercise bands with the intention of doing some banded lateral walks and banded hip raises for glutes and banded neutral grip dumbbell shoulder presses. However, I am discovering that I cannot take the searing pain the bands inflict on me, tearing the hair and flesh off my arms and legs. Am I doing something wrong?
I realize a simple answer is to wear pants and a sweatshirt, however it is summer and I am doing this in my very hot, humid garage. I know I’ll get some “quit being a pussy” responses too, which is standard protocol for the internet so all I can say to that is that I normally have a high pain tolerance and I’m doing my best.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
