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.

  • 3 resistance levels
  • Black protective band shroud
  • Soft rubber handles
  • Durable, rubber surgical tube

Excellent Resistance Bands

I have others, but the quality of American Barbell blows the Competition away, I will purchase again

Great quality, rugged

Very nice quality tubes and handles. I'm a physical therapist who works at industrial sites for injury prevention, and purchased these tubes for "conditioning stations" throughout my plants. The high-quality materials and protective tube sleeves should hold up well to frequent use and harsh conditions. I plan to buy more for future installations. Well worth the money!

Best Bands

This my 4th Band from American Barbell Everything they have is top notch

Love this product!

There was a set of these at my gym that I used to do some prescribed rehab exercises after bicep repair surgery. The results were excellent and I progressed to my regular workouts without the shoulder pain that had plagued and inhibited me for years. The versatility makes these a take anywhere tool in your fitness arsenal. Light, compact and travels anywhere. The covering locks down on itself, making the bands much easier to use than other resistance tubing and I don’t have to be concerned with marring / marking whatever surface I am using. Also, the handles are so much better than the friction created when gripping a regular resistance band. I highly recommend this well constructed / sure to last product to anyone looking to tone or condition any of the smaller / stabilizing muscle groups.

Great Product

First time ordering from American Barbell and it was great. I will for sure be ordering more pricey items in the future. The delivery day came sooner than expected which was fantastic. Build quality of the heavy tube is fantastic! Plus, I had free shipping!
