Born in the Navy SEALs, Suspension Training bodyweight exercise develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. It requires the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer, which leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to complete 100s of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.
Suspension training workouts develop core strength using functional movements and dynamic positions, rather than only lying supine on the floor like most traditional abdominal training exercises. In addition to offering a range of intense movements targeting the abdominals specifically, significant core strengthening is integrated into each back, shoulder, chest, hip and leg exercise as well.
Suspension Training exercise accommodates limitless variation in movement angle and planes of motion for virtually all exercises, allowing us to train like we live, rather than sitting down and training one single plane or isolated muscle at a time. With the TRX, functional training principles can be integrated into program design to achieve specific functional objectives, such as throwing a football, swinging a golf club or performing a high jump, or general fitness objectives including improved strength, balance, flexibility and core stability.
