There are tons of resistance bands available on the market and for all different uses and exercises. We highly recommend thigh-targeting resistance bands also known as booty bands. These will engage and activate glutes, quads and in some exercises even abs. They come in a variety of strengths which can be used as you progress, yes, but also for different exercises and areas. Longer resistance bands are great for additional support and stretches but when very thick can be used as weight substitutes. The longer bands are great to use if you are trying to strengthen the upper body in order to be able to do push-ups or pull-ups.
Skipping ropes are a great source of cardio, they are fun and challenging. This is a diverse tool that can be used anywhere.

Once you become a professional you will be doing those tricks and switches in no time. For those with kids, this is a great way to get them involved and active.
Ankle weights are a great addition to your at-home leg workout and can be utilized whilst doing cardio too. The weight will need to be adjusted after a while however, we highly recommend them. They are particularly great for floor-work such as donkey kicks and other glute squashing moves. Feel free to leave them on for your whole session if you can handle that extra push.
