I'm Jeremy Shore for livestrong.com, and this is how to use rubber tubes for a workout. Rubber tubes can be a great alternative or complementary training tool to your exercise routine. Tubes come in varying tensions, usually differentiated by color or size. Tubes can also be doubled up to create added tension. Depending on the muscles being targeted, either step onto the tube or anchor the tube around a stable pole or bar. An example of three basic anchored exercises using a tube would be a chest press, a row and a core rotation. A combo exercise that can be performed while standing on a tube is the squat to shoulder press. Let me show you. To perform a chest press, wrap your tubing around a reinforced polar bar and then step in between the handles. Place the handle into each hand. From here, step out with one foot in staggered split stance with the abs tight; head up, chest up, shoulders down away from the ears and then drive your hands forward, squeezing the chest at the end and control the resistance back and repeat. Whew! Whew! Step further away for more resistance or closer for less. Next, we can perform a row by turning around and facing the pole. From here, take the handle in each hand and step back, about a shoulder width stance, squat a little bit into an athletic position, bent knees, ab tights, chest up and then row the handles into your sides, retracting your shoulder blades and then control the weight back. Keep your shoulders down away from your ears, maintain upright posture, step further away for more resistance or closer for less. And lastly, we can target the core with a tube rotation, keeping the tube anchored around the pole and placing both handles in between your hands with a hand over hand grip. With a bent in the knees, chest up, abs tight, rotate, pivoting the trail leg and then controlling it back to the starting position. Pivot and rotate. Whew! Hmmn! Whew! Whew! And then switch sides. This can be performed back to back as a circuit or individually. For a great combo exercise, you can step onto the tube right in the mid-foot about hip to shoulder width apart. From there, curl the tubes up and then wrap them back around you to get into a squat position with your, with your palms up and your shoulder blades retracted and your elbows on the insides of the tube. From here, slowly lower yourself into a squat by pushing your hips back, keeping your ankles, knees, hips and trunk in line; keep your chest up. Now, drive up at the top of the position, finish with a press. Now, put these two exercises together. So, squat; up, press. The wider your step, the more tension you'll place on the tube.
