    Routine with only resistance bands

    Hi, again i am going on holiday for a week, and i would just skip the week, however the holidays recently have been so hectic that i don't think i can afford to skip it. so, i have some resistance bands, fairly strong, not too bad, i can do most exercises with them, i can make them more resistant if need be. that is all i have, and possibly a bed/ chair to do exercises on, and floor space, etc. i would like to be able to do my entire body, so i was thinking of something like:

    workout 1

    dynamic stretch warm up
    press-ups, feet on bed, resistance bands on arms/ over back. 2 sets of 10
    squats with resistance bands. 2 sets of 15
    Lateral raises with bands. 1 set of 15
    tricep dips with hands on chair/ bed. 2 sets of 10
    shoulder press with bands. 1 set of 20
    Bicep curl with bands, one hand at a time. 2 sets of 10
    (something to do with the back? for a couple of sets)
    Static stretching to finish

    workout 2

    Crunch. 1 set 10 reps
    Pulse up against a door 1 set 10 reps
    side crunch, per side. 1 set 10 reps
    oblique V-up. 1 set 10 reps
    V-up. 1 set 10 reps
    Reverse crunch. 1 set 10 reps

    as you can see, the second workout is specified to abs (my girlfriend wants me to get more defined abs, i will be eating less also.
    so the layout will be alternating, i.e. workout 1, next day workout 2, day after workout 1, then day after workout 2, e.t.c.

    i don't think it will be overloading as i am 16, and the workout 1 isn't particularly taxing to my body, just enough to train it.

    any feedback welcome, thank you for reading
    from mini to mighty... (hopefully), training for athleticism, muscle and confidence.

    It's better than nothing but I think you'd be better off if you just took a break for the week and hit the weights hard when you got back. And on holidays your always moving around so if your eating enough food I don't think you'll loose any of your gains.
