Unlike weight and pulley devices and weight machines, the figure of eight tubes allow for all strengthening exercises to be done in functional, sports related movements. This makes them perfect not only for people with injuries but for sports training.
When pulling the weight the resistance will equal that of that signified weight. For example; pulling the 9kg weight with both hands equates to the same weight as 9kg dumbbell. The resistance provided by the PhysioRoom.com Resistance Exercise Tubes allows for specific strengthening of muscle groups and tendons during rehab and sports training.
Resistance Tubes are made from a high grade medical rubber, 99.99% free from latex allergens. Depending on their level of elasticity, they provide a graded amount of resistance to movement. They provide an excellent method of resistance training for the strengthening of specific muscles and tendons. Start with the lowest level of resistance and build sets and repetitions gradually. Then once the exercises become too easy, move on to the next level of resistance provided by the next Resistance Exercise Tube.
