Bicep curls are a great routine for building the upper body strength necessary for everyday lifting. An added bonus? They also help fight against the muscle degeneration that can be a byproduct of too much inactivity. Combine this exercise with the five-minute band walk for a simple routine with a band.

Exercise

  1. Stand on the band with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold the ends of the band at your hips.
  2. Keeping your elbows tucked in at your sides, curl your forearms to your shoulders. Return to starting position.
  3. Do up to 10 repetitions of three sets (30 reps) with a 30-second break between each set.
