Chest Exercises Using Resistance Tubes?

Can I build my chest with resistance bands? The resistance band row is a great assistance exercise for chest workouts as it reinforces proper back positioning, builds back strength, and can help stabilize the shoulders during chest workouts.

What exercises can I do with resistance tubes? Stand on the center of the resistance tube with both feet evenly spaced shoulder width apart. Engage core and pull handles up while bending elbows and keeping elbows close to sides until handles reach shoulder level. Return handles to start position and repeat for a total of 8-12 or 12-15 repetitions.

Do resistance tubes actually work? Research shows that strength gains from using elastic resistance bands are similar to training with dumbbells or weight machines, benefiting not only the average person but also benefit athletes. Resistance-band training can even increase the stabiliser muscles to a greater extent than weight training.
