FYI's Health Tip: Use Resistance Tubing Safely -- Diana Kohnle

Home > Health Information from A-Z > Health News > 

Resistance tubing is an inexpensive, convenient tool to help you get needed exercise -- at virtually any location.

The American Council on Exercise mentions these suggestions for using resistance tubing:

  • Inspect tubing to look for any holes or worn areas. Replace if necessary.
  • Do not use tubing on cement or asphalt, which can cause tears.
  • Don't wear sandals or dress shoes while using tubing. Instead, don a sturdy, comfortable pair of athletic shoes.
  • Secure tubing under a foot or anchor before you begin each exercise.
  • Focus on good posture during your exercise, keeping knees slightly bent, chest out and abdominal muscles taut.
