    I decided to try out the 12 week muscle building workout, but I have no way to do the Tube Pull Ups and Downs at my gym. Does nyone know of a good excercise that I could do in its place, that would do the same?

    -thanks

    ITs a pretty unique exercise. My gym has tons of those stretchy jump rope looking things laying around. i tie two of them to a piece of gym equipment to do them. The stretch is also similar to the therabands so I bet they would work too.

    Hey there,

    So I talked to Mike Clausen (creator of the program).

    He said if you don't have tubes, you can use the cable machine to replicate the exercise, or, if you don't have access to a cable machine either, with two relatively light dumbbells. Just make sure you mimic the motion of the movement as much as possible.

    Hope that helps. If you have further questions, let me know.

    Thanks for that Jeff. I'm about to have a crack at this programme but have never seen a tube stretchy thing like that at a gym before.

    Cheers!
