What do figure 8 toners do?
Figure 8 toners, also known as figure 8 resistance bands or tubes, are used to improve muscle tone and strength. They are excellent for upper body conditioning, adding an extra level of resistance to your workouts to strengthen arms, chest, shoulders, and backs.
Are resistance exercisers safe to use?
When used correctly, resistance exercisers are safe. However, if the tubing has become damaged or overextended, it can break. If it breaks while under tension, it could fly back into your body and cause damage. This is why caring for your equipment is important.
What can I do with ankle tube exercisers?
Ankle tube exercisers are, as the name suggests, for use on your legs. They are slipped around your ankles and can be used during squats and stretches to add an additional level of difficulty. This resistance puts your muscles under continued pressure and makes for a more intensive workout.
What do the different colours of fitness tubes mean?
Fitness tubes come in a variety of colours, and this isn’t for aesthetic purposes. The colours demonstrate the different levels of resistance in each band. Companies tend to use different colours to represent different levels, but more often than not you’ll find that black is used as one of the more challenging difficulty levels.
Why should I use resistance bands?
Your exercise routine may be working well for you, but you might find that you need to increase the difficulty. If so, resistance bands can help. They can easily be integrated into your routine and help to improve both muscle strength and tone. Next time you head to the gym, try using a resistance band and see what a difference it makes.
