To do these exercises, you will need a
24 in. (60 cm) length of
rubber tubing with knots tied at each end. Check the rubber tubing each
time you use it to be sure there are no holes or frayed areas. This will help
you avoid having the tubing break during exercises.
As you begin
each exercise, hold the tubing with your hands about shoulder-width apart. The
tubing should be straight but not stretched out.
tubing wider until you feel tension. And hold each exercise for a slow count of
5 (about 5 seconds). You may increase the time as you get stronger.
