Is Suspension Training Right For You?

What is Suspension Training?

You may be wondering what suspension training is and why it is quickly becoming a go-to workout for many fitness enthusiasts.


Suspension training can be traced back to the 1800’s where it was based on different ideas that may have been present even before then. It is thought to be a rope-based condition system used by inhabitants of the Andes Mountains.


Suspension training is a radical way of doing body weight exercise using fitness equipment known as suspension trainer. This equipment allows you to perform a natural, free flowing movement and exercise that helps build your strength, lose weight and tone your body. Healthy individuals can do this training exercise to change their exercise and fitness routine.


How Suspension Training Works

Suspension training equipment can be easily adjusted using an adjustable strap to temporarily become fixed to an anchor point, a door or other sturdy object. The equipment will harness your body weight to go against gravity and let you do exercises in a suspended state.


Suspension training is a great exercise choice for anyone who wants to increase strength, develop definition, stability, endurance and tone up.


Most of all, this is an ideal workout for people who want to try a new way of exercising and for those who don’t enjoy being inside of a gym during their workout as suspensions training can be practiced outdoors and at bootcamps.


Having said all that, like all forms of exercise, suspension training needs hard work and dedication. If you are really serious about your health and fitness, then suspension training regularly can help you focus on different muscles that are difficult to target at the gym.


Keep in mind that this exercise may or may not be the right one for you. With proper guidance from outdoor fitness training specialists you can see for yourself what it takes to do this exercise and know what you can benefit from doing suspension training.


Benefits of Suspension Training


1. Improve Cardio and Strength


If you want your heart to get stronger, suspension training is the best exercise to improve not just you muscle strength but also your cardiovascular endurance. Perform this exercise by changing speed to increase heart and lung workload.


2. Versatile Exercise


The adjustable bands provided in the suspension equipment easily let you do your exercise anytime and anywhere. You can also carry it with you whenever you’re on a business trip to continue your strength training wherever you are.


3. Low Impact Exercise


Suspension training exercise is very low impact and this means that the joints are not put under too much stress. There is low risk of injury and it lets you train as hard as you want without causing injury or agitating existing ones.


4. Involves the Whole Body


One of the best things about suspension training is the functional movement it gives the muscles to work at the same time in a coordinated manner. It provides a comprehensive and all over workout for the muscles to function well.


5. Balance or Core Stability


Suspension training develops core body strength, as well as joint and muscular stability which can prevent the chance of injury. The muscles involved in this type of workout can develop the nerve impulses and reflexes that contribute to balance and coordination.
