Marlene® Loop bands

Fruit and exercise, the healthy combination.

The apple is the fruit of wellbeing. The secret of staying in shape is a healthy diet and the right, repeated physical activity. Need some ideas for workouts at home?! These are the six exercises that champion biathlete Dorothea Wierer recommends.

Position one band below the knees and one at the ankles

Keep your upper body strong and steady. Bend your knees slightly. Take slow and controlled steps out to the side, then bring your feet together again. Make sure that your knees are always in line right above your toes.

Loop the band around the palms of your hands

Now pull back with your elbow, keeping it tight to your body. Keep your upper body still. Next, change side.

Lying on your side

Loop the band around your ankles. Resting on your elbow and forearm, lift your hips into a half side plank, then raise your leg, keeping it straight. Repeat on the other side.

On all fours

Keeping your back straight, loop the band around your feet. Stretch your leg out straight behind you and then return to the starting position. Repeat on the other side.

Loop the band around your feet

Lying flat on your back, bring one knee into your chest and then the other, simultaneously stretching the opposite leg out in front. Keep the small of your back pressed firmly into your mat. Keep your arms tight to your body.

Kneeling on one knee with the other leg bent

At 90 degrees, keep your upper body straight. Start with your arm stretched out in front, then pull your elbow back as far as possible.
