Upper Body Workout You Can Do Anywhere (Video)

Upper Body Workout You Can Do Anywhere (Video)


First, let me start with a confession.

I’m awful at volleyball. Actually, I’m really not that great at basketball either. Wait, I’m just not that great at a lot of things which is why running seems (or seemed) to workout so well with me because you just run. It doesn’t matter if you’re good or not, you just get your butt out there and do it.


Back to volleyball. I’m not good at all, but I do love wearing Mizuno volleyball clothes.

Oh heck yes. They are so comfortable. Comfortable for work, running errands, doing some cleaning cardio and even for this quick upper body workout that you can do anywhere.

It’s hard as a runner (or a mom, or a full time working adult, etc.) to find time to get extra resistance training in but really it’s so important. Not only for functional movement and core strength, but as runners it can really help with performance, endurance, posture, running efficiency, fighting off fatigue, etc.


Here are my top go to moves to hit all the major muscle groups in the upper body. All you need is a resistance band.

I took some pictures of some of the moves for you.

There are a couple more I added since I’m always adding things in last minute. That’s just what I do.

Here’s the workout.

Resistance Band Upper Body Moves

Here’s a random video I decided to shoot at the last minute with a little better demonstration and explanation of the moves. You know, just in case you want to feel like we’re working out together for a couple minutes.

Yes, I am aware my head is cut off at the beginning, but hey, at this point I’m not about to video this again just so my face shoes. It’s probably better with it cut off anyway. Ha ha.

Here you go. Let me know if you try any of the moves!

Yes, I’m a bit of a mess at the end of the day. I’ve got nothing to hide. Ha ha.


Before I go I need to tell you about one more thing Mizuno is doing. They’re donating $10 to Back on My Feet for every pair of Mizuno shoes sold this month.


Isn’t that just so cool?


Two more days until Spring Break.

Let’s do this!

    I am awful at all sports! I am amazingly uncoordinated and always have been. Like, I broke my leg as a kid getting out of bed one day!
    Anyway… Thank you for posting this. I am currently somewhat limited in the exercises I can do, so I love seeing some upper body workout that I could modify.

    Love the exercises!
    I’m also quite terrible at volleyball. It’s bad news when a player is scared of the ball o__O (I grew up with club/racket sports like golf and tennis, haha. I’d be a lot less scared of the ball if I had a racket!).

    Looks like you were almost ready to do a jig at the end 😉 . You could also do shoulder presses and triceps overhead extensions. Instead of standing on the bands, you could just kneel. Would have probably worked for your lat raises. Great on the go workout tho!
