    Use Quality Tubing

    Make sure you use quality tubing to create an exercise rubber band, as otherwise excessive stretching can make it useless quickly. It can also cause a safety risk for you. Be assured about the quality of rubber of the tubing you are using to create your own personalised rubber band. If the tubing has been lying around, especially exposed to sun, for a considerable amount of time, it is likely that the rubber's quality has been deteriorated.
