How to choose resistance tubing

                       

Dr. Laskowski: Resistance tubing is a lightweight, portable, inexpensive strength training tool. The tubing provides resistance when stretched.

You can choose from many types of resistance tubes in nearly any sporting goods store. In general, the lighter the color the tubing, the lighter the resistance. Likewise, the darker the tubing, or the shorter you make the tubing, the greater the resistance.

You can use resistance tubing to strengthen virtually any muscle group, both in the arms and the legs. As you get stronger, you can use tubes that provide more resistance.
