6 Resistance Band Exercises Climbers Can Do at Home

Here we are…. Well over a month into quarantine (some maybe even longer) and some of us are going crazy! I know for me I am dying to get out and climb. Spring is IDEAL ski mountaineering conditions. Yet here I sit. In my house dreaming of peaks, hoping and praying this all ends soon. We do what we can during these uncertain times. So to keep those climber muscles from getting weak, try these 6 resistance band exercises climbers can do at home.

Bicep Curls

Stand on the center of the band. Tuck in elbows in, palms up. Curl arms up nice and controlled.

Lateral Raises

Stand on one end of the band and hold the band out to the side. Raise arm to a “T” position.

Tricep Extension

Stand on the center of the band. Slight bend in the knee, and bend over slightly. Tuck in arms and extend behind you.

Overhead Tricep Extension

Stand on the handle on one end of the band and hold the band behind you. Tuck in your core so your spine is aligned. Extend arms straight back.

Bicep Row

The best way to do this exercise would be by wrapping the center of the band around door handles or around a post. Stand back and sit back slightly. Draw elbows in palms facing toward each other.

Chest Row

The best way to do this exercise would be by wrapping the center of the band around door handles or around a post. Stand back and sit back slightly. Draw elbows back with palms facing the ground. Think about squeeze your shoulder blades together.

Create a Routine

Try putting these exercises together into supersets! For example:

3 sets of 15 Bicep Curls, and 15 Tricep Extensions back to back. Rest 30 seconds between sets.

3 Sets of 15 Lateral Raises and 15 Overhead tricep extensions. Rest 30 seconds between sets.

3 Sets of 15 Bicep Rows and 15 Chest Rows. Rest 30 seconds between sets.

Don’t forget to stretch those arms when you are finished!
