You have seen the tubes laying around the gym or possibly have a couple in your home. They are also a staple in most group fitness classes so they can’t be as affective as pumping iron right? Wrong! Exercise tubes are some of the best kept secrets to increase your strength!
A huge benefit to using the tubes, or bands, is that as you are going through a range of motion and stretching the tube, the resistance becomes greater so you are challenging the muscle group more! When you lift a dumbbell, you have a fixed amount of weight you are lifting throughout the movement. Getting a combination of exercises, and equipment, will give you a fantastic workout and work your muscles in a more complete way! Get a set of tubes for your home that you can utilize when you can’t get to the gym!
