Exercise Tubing and Bands (cont.)

Front raise

    1. Same as lateral raise except lift arms to front.
    2. Stop when hands are at chest height, and then return to starting position.


    1. Stand on tube so that it is securely under your foot and can't snap up (you should wear shoes).
    2. Bring hands up over shoulders with elbows bent at side.
    3. There should be tension in the tube.
    4. Hold handles still and squat down as if you were trying to sit down.
    5. Make sure knees stay behind toes (if your knees end up in front of your toes, it will strain your knees).
    6. Return to standing position.
Add abdominal exercises (without the tube) at each session to round out your workouts.
