Home > Health Library > Resistance training with rubber tubing
To do these exercises, you will need a 24 in. (60 cm) length of rubber tubing with knots tied at each end. Check the rubber tubing each time you use it to be sure there are no holes or frayed areas. This will help you avoid having the tubing break during exercises.
As you begin each exercise, hold the tubing with your hands about shoulder-width apart. The tubing should be straight but not stretched out.
Stretch the tubing wider until you feel tension. And hold each exercise for a slow count of 5 (about 5 seconds). You may increase the time as you get stronger.
