Tennis balls with your theraband

When you use an elastic band for resistance for arm exercises, it can be hard to hold the band without an awkward finger position. Try putting a tennis ball under the final 4 or 5 inches of the band and then grip the ball and band together, giving you a better anatomical position for gripping. I use the band for rowing (looped around my feet) and shoulder presses (to avoid weight bearing on the lower back).


  • You can get resistance bands with fixed handles or kits that have handles and several bands of varying resistance. I find them easier to work with than the rubber bands that come with exercise ball kits.

    Never thought of making a mock handle with a tennis ball.
