About Resistance Tubing

Resistance tubing is widely used in baseball for strength, conditioning, injury prevention, and rehabilitation. Smaller muscle groups that are hard to target with traditional free weight exercises can be addressed with resistance tubing. The versatility of resistance tubing allow the pitcher to replicate movements with resistance. Exercise programs utilizing resistance tubing can simulate the pitching motion and reinforce proper pitching efficiencies.

The capability to focus on movements rather than individual muscle groups make resistance tubing a superior sport specific training tool. The appropriate use of resistance tubing promotes a full range of motion, improves functional strength and builds endurance for improved pitching performance.

Oates Specialties Resistance Tubing is made with tubing from the Hygenic Corporation, makers of Thera-Band TM brand tubing. Their trademarked resistance color system assures consistent resistance and their product quality is recognized throughout the athletic and medical communities.

While only the best tubing is used, the real secret of Oates Specialties Resistance Tubing is in its construction. Fabricated in the USA, these accessories are designed and manufactured with the throwing athlete in mind. With product advice from Ron Wolforth, one of the countries premier pitching coaches and product testing conducted at his academy, the utility and durability of these accessories were thoroughly tested without losing focus on comfort of the athlete. Firm cushioned handles and secure comfortable straps accommodate aggressive athletic movements. The design used to attach the handles and/or grips to the resistance tubing and the resistance tubing to an anchor are the key to the durability of Oates Specialties Resistance Tubing.

Oates Tubing is often referred to as "Simply the best Tubing Available"
