Suspension Training

What is Suspension Training?

Suspension training is a method of exercise where the user’s hands or feet are supported by a single anchor point while the opposite end of the body is in contact with the ground.

How Does it Work?

Suspension training accommodates variations in movement angles and planes of motion. Suspension training displaces the center of gravity, which activates the core musculature during every exercise. Suspension training accommodates variations in movement angles and planes of motion.

It’s Easy to Adjust Intensity

Change your body angle

  • the steeper the angle, the greater the resistance

Change starting position

  • moving towards or away from neutral will make the exercise easier or harder

Change the base of support

  • move your feet apart, together, offset to add or decrease intensity

Timed Sets vs. Rep-based Sets

Instead of traditional rep-based sets, try working out on the suspension trainers using timed sets, performing as many repetitions as you can in the time allotted. Monitoring reps within a set time period is a great way to measure your improvements.
