Health Tip: Use Resistance Tubing Safely
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.
