5 Resistance Tube Exercises for Beginners
Resistance tubes are a great way to add variety to your at-home workout. They are basically elastic tubes with handles that add resistance to any bodyweight exercise or routine. They are safe to incorporate for all age groups whether beginners or fitness experts as they come in different sizes. Resistance tubes are also commonly known as resistance bands with handles. Below are top 5 resistance tube exercises which you can add to your workout routine from today.
First, hold the tube with both hands at chest height in front of you. Keep your hands at shoulder-width apart. Slowly pull your hands apart. This will stretch the band and squeeze your shoulder blades apart. Then slowly return to the starting position. Repeat 2 sets with 10 repetitions each. This exercise can help open your shoulders.Pall of Press
Start by securing the tube around a doorknob and keep the band at your chest height. Then grab the other end of the tube with both your hands while facing the object. Keep moving backwards until the tube is taut. Then turn 90 degrees from the doorknob so that it is on your side. Push the band straight in front of you and hold. Make sure to keep your body straight. Hold for 15 seconds. Then return to the starting position and repeat on the other side. Complete two sets with ten repetitions on each side. This exercise mainly works on your core and relieves any back pain.Leg press
Lie down on your back with your feet flat on the floor and knees bent. Raise your left foot and bring your knee to the chest. Loop the tube around the arch of your foot. Then extend your leg by straightening your leg and pressing your foot away. Slowly return to the starting position and repeat on the other side. Repeat two sets with ten repetitions on each side. This movement strengthens your lower body.Abs Crunch
You will start by looping the band around an immovable object placed on the floor. Then grab each end of the band, lie on your back and align your head to the immovable object. Keep your knees bent, feet flat on the floor and hands above your face. Then tighten your abdominal muscles, suck your navel inwards and lift your upper body, shoulders and head. Then slowly return to the starting position.Chest Press
First, place the tube around your back under your arms. You will be holding each end with your arms bent and hands near your armpits. Then extend your arms in front of you at your chest level. Bend your arms and return to the starting position. Repeat this movement for two sets with 10 repetitions. This is a good exercise to improve posture and strengthen your back muscles. Repeat two sets with 10 repetitions each. This exercise will target your abdominal muscles and strengthen your upper body.
These resistance tube exercises mentioned above are easy to follow for beginners. You can pair them with some stretching exercises at the end to ensure quick muscle recovery. Resistance tube workouts are low-impact exercises which work on different parts of the body. Resistance tubes are also very affordable and easy to store; thus make for a perfect home gym equipment.
While using resistance tubes is generally safe and not easily prone to accidents, it is still advisable to start slow and then increase resistance. Always test the resistance levels of your tubes before starting your workout. A worn out tube is more likely to cause injury. While exercising, also remember to focus on your form and also concentrate on your breathing. Don’t overexert yourself by overstretching the bands or using high weight resistance tubes without practice.
Incorporate these resistance tube exercises slowly into your everyday routine, along with a warm up and stretching routine and you are bound to see a difference.
