Resistance BandsPosted on: June 23rd, 2010 by Charles Pruett
You gotta love the creative ways people come up with useful applications of surgical tubing! Take a look at the photo here of these resistance tubes, also sometimes called resistance bands, even though tubes are typically much stronger—and provide higher resistance—than mere bands. Of all the exercise products available, these are among the most versatile and useful.
You’ve seen surgical tubing used, undoubtedly, for those high-powered slingshots often called “wrist rockets.” The elastic tubing is terrifically strong, providing resistance perfect for a wide variety of workout situations. These are truly a must for the person serious about physical fitness whether aerobic or even strength training. I’d say these are as important to the cardio conscious individual as workout gloves are to the person “pumping iron.”
