The American Barbell series of resistance tubes are available in light, medium, and heavy resistance. The tubes are shrouded in a black protective cover to make them safer and more durable. The ergonomic handles provide a comfortable, secure grip. These tubes are super strong, with reflexive surgical elastic to provide a realistic counter to free weight training.
Exercising with resistance tubes provides linear variable resistance, resulting in higher fast-twitch muscle fiber recruitment than if you were using barbells and dumbbells. The American Barbell resistance tubes allow you to simulate traditional exercises that are normally performed with light free weights. They can also be attached to a door to emulate cable machine exercises such as lat pulldowns and chest presses.
The resistance tubes are color-coded as follows:
Green = Light resistance
Red = Medium resistance
Blue = Heavy resistance
The light resistance equates to between 5-12 pounds of resistance, with the medium being 10-22 pounds equivalence and the heavy tube providing between 18-35 pounds of resistance.
