Here is a members only a full-length, total body resistance band workout that you can do in your home or at the yard to increase upper and lower strength whilst focussing on scapular stability, glute and core strength.
When I am programming for riders i ‘nearly’ always prescribe total body workouts because I believe that is the most effective way to transfer physical traits over to the horse, when you ride you use your entire body!

If you haven’t considered it I would really recommend investing in some basic at home kit to enhance your workouts. In this video I use a resistance band set with a door anchor which in my opinion is fantastic you can get sets or just the door anchor if you already have bands on www.amazon.com at reasonable prices. This link should give you plenty of ideas!
