10 Strength Training Exercises You Can Do with ExerBand Tubing
You want to get strong. Maybe it’s for your health, or maybe you just want to look good with your shirt off. It doesn’t really matter why you’re doing it. What matters is how you plan to reach your goals. As always, your best bet is a combination of healthy eating, cardiovascular exercise, and strength training. And when it comes to strength training, you don’t need much more than a good set of resistance bands, something like ExerBand Tubing.
ExerBand resistance tubing is widely used in Physical Therapy offices to help people regain strength after injury or illness. It has the advantage of being relatively inexpensive compared with free weights or weight machines. It’s also highly portable, takes up little space, and is extremely versatile when it comes to exercising just about any muscle in the body.
The ExerBand Resistance Tubing System
ExerBand tubing is available in a range of resistance levels from extra light to extra heavy. That’s really all you need to get started with strength training. But it’s also possible to greatly expand the available exercises with just a few accessories (web anchor straps, exercise rails, extremity strap, fitness bar). Check out the examples below for options.
