Tube Training

Tube Training

Resistance bands are a great addition to any strength training routine or rehabilitation program. Resistance Band training looks after all the major muscle groups and improves your posture. It's also lots of fun!

Research has shown that in order to have a long and active life, the biological indicator is to increase your lean muscle mass. The easiest way to build lean muscle mass is via resistance training.
This class will include a brief warm up, tube training learning exercises for each muscle group, with stretching in between each set and ending the session with a relaxation to unwind.
After the initial introduction to all exercises participants will be encouraged to gradually build on repetitions and sets. Also use thicker tubing to increase resistance.

BEGINNERS:
Perform 10 -12 repetitions with 45 -60 sec rest in between each set.

INTERMEDIATE:
Perform 8-10 repetitions with 35-40 sec rest in between each set. Perform 2 sets.

ADVANCED:
Perform 8 repetitions with 30 secs rest in between each set. Perform 3 sets.
