    Greetings Jeremy Good to hear from you again would push ups do almost the same thing or do we need the tube

    • Hi John,
      Good question. No, this is not going to produce the same effects as a normal push-up. The resistance with a push-up is geared toward your chest and arm muscles. This exercise has resistance outward as shown when the tubing is pulled apart. This outward resistance is meant to target the postural muscles between the shoulder blades and around the mid-back. Targeting these muscles will build endurance, strength and awareness of the proper postural muscles needed to do perfect push-ups and rows. You’ll see the correlation in videos to come.

  2. Jeremy ,
    This is fantastic exercise to cure slouched backs .
    I ‘ve seen on ROGER FREDERICK’s site an instrument called the “POSTURIZER “.
    It’s basically a padded bar you put behind your neck to straighten your hunched back :only it doesn’t bring into play the muscles between your shoulders (The trap├Ęzes muscles)

    • Hi Raymond,
      Good observation. Stetching for better posture is great but actual change and awareness won’t happen until we strengthen the muscles that extend our mid-back and retract our shoulder blades. This exercise will certainly help.

    Greetings again Where would i get the tube ?

    • Any sporting goods store will have this kind of tubing. I think I got this from Wal-Mart next door even. It’s nothing fancy… very basic.
