Time Inc. Studios1. Perform squats with bicep curls for one minute
Hold one end of a resistance band in each hand. (If you have a band with handles, hold the handles.) With your arms straight down at your sides, stand with your feet on the band, a little more than hip-width apart. Bend your knees so that you're positioned as if you were almost sitting down in a chair.
