Exercise tubing or resistance tube is a generic term for any rubber tubing or flat tube device used for strength training. During strength training, a resistive force greater than normal is applied to your body. This force can be provided by machines, your own body weight, free weights (dumbbells, barbells), or rubber resistance.

When additional force is applied, your muscles, bones, and connective tissue respond by getting stronger. The advantages of using exercise tubing include portability, the ability to vary the tension to make an exercise harder, and the ability to perform exercises that cannot be done with free weights.

Exercise tubes work certain parts of the body according to where they are placed and how they are used. They are especially great for strengthening & toning legs and arms and work great for abdominal muscles.

Exercise tubes vs. Free Weights

Exercise resistance tubes have different properties than free weights. When using free weights, you always know exactly how much weight you're lifting. On the other hand, resistance tubes produce a bell-shaped strength curve that does not rely on gravity. For certain exercises, the weights offer resistance in one phase, and gravity takes over during the return phase of the movement. In contrast, tubes provide equal resistance during both phases and alter the resistance according to the strength curve of the muscle.

Precautions to take while using Exercise Tubes

  • Do not stretch tubes beyond 3 times their resting length.
  • Change the tube immediately if you spot tears or abrasions on the surface.
  • Periodically check the connection points of the bands or tubing to the attachment device.
  • Always inspect the bands or tubing before use.
  • Always secure the bands or tubing to a sturdy, non-movable object.
  • Use the Door Anchor and exercise tubing Handle, and Assist for connection.
  • Jewelry, fingernails, and other sharp objects may cause tears or abrasions.
  • Always protect the eyes during exercise with elastic bands or tubing.
  • Tubes and bands should be replaced every 1-2 months in case of heavy use.
  • Use Extremity Strap to connect to the legs or arms.

How to Clean the Resistance Tubing?

  • Immerse the band or tube in fresh clean water in a sink or under a running faucet.
  • Rub a small amount of mild hand soap over the wet tube and then rinse in fresh water.
  • Lay flat to dry, or drape the tube over the back of a chair and allow it to thoroughly dry.
  • Once dry, rub a small amount of talcum, baby powder, or similar powder over the surface of the tube to prevent sticking.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can resistance bands help build muscles?

Yes, they can! Depending on the size and how hard they are to stretch, resistance bands are excellent for toning or building muscles. To make muscles grow more, you need to make the bands harder to stretch over time.

2. Does using more than one resistance band make the workout harder?

Absolutely! When you combine bands, it makes the workout tougher and more challenging. This extra challenge helps muscles get stronger and bigger.

3. How often should I do resistance training?

It depends. Usually, doing resistance training two to four times a week is good for improving strength and health.

4. How long should a resistance workout be?

Keep it short. If you're just starting, don't go over thirty minutes. For advanced training, don't do more than three exercises for each group of muscles. Treat it like any other exercise.
