What’s to Love About Suspension Training
Have you tried suspension training yet? If not let me tell you a few of the reasons why I love suspension training and use it so often with clients and in my own training.
Engages the Core
I love exercises that target the core. It is impossible to be functionally strong without a strong core. Your core is the anchor against which your legs and arms pull when it comes time to lift a heavy bar bell, run a marathon, or complete the swim portion of a triathlon. Having a strong core makes a world of difference in your athletic performance, not to mention keeping you safe throughout your activities of daily living. What I love about suspension training is that it adds an element of core training to every exercises. Suspension training creates an unstable environment in which your stabilizing muscles and core are recruited to keep you balanced. If you already have a rock solid core get ready to take some of those moves to the next level, core specific moves with a suspension trainer are some of the most fun and the most challenging!
Adds a New Challenge
Because the suspension system creates an unstable environment it is a great way to take classic body weight exercises to the next level. Have you tried doing a push up, Bulgarian squat or burpee with a suspension system? If not, get ready to take your workout to a whole new level! A suspension system also allows you to work muscles that are often hard to target in a small home gym or while traveling, like your lats. Now you can work on those pull up gains without having to dedicate a door way to your pull up bar.
Portable, Easy to Set Up, and Simple to Store
For many of us having a dedicated room for our home gym is not an option, that is why the suspension exercises tops my Home Gym Essentials List. In fact, if you were to pick just one item to add to your home gym I would select the suspension exercise system. It is an extremely versatile piece of equipment that offers the most bang for your buck when it comes to home workout equipment. It is also extremely easy to set up and packs away in a small mesh bag making it ideal for small homes, apartments, and even travel.
FE Strong Suspension Exercise System Review
When the FE Strong Suspension Exercise System arrived it exceeded my expectations! It comes in plain packaging with no extra frills, FE Strong prides themselves on providing the highest quality fitness gear for the best price. There are no extra materials which was a plus for me, I hate having to throw away a lot of unnecessary packaging. However if you are new to suspension training be sure to check on their online resources for help getting started and suggested exercises.
I was very impressed when I unpacked the FE Strong Suspension Exercises System. The straps themselves are made from durable nylon. The adjustment clips are solid metal with appropriate tension for easy transitions. The attachment clips are made of solid metal as well. One of the most important features that you may miss if you don’t spend hours a week working with suspension trainers is the handles. While cheaper systems are made with foam handles that tear over time and are hard to keep clean the FE Strong Suspension Exercises System is made with high quality rubber handles that are comfortable to grip and will hold up well over time. I also loved the fresh green color of the straps they look great in my home and on the blog!
The Down Side
While I enjoyed the green approach of minimal packaging I can see where new users may be a little lost when first unpacking the FE Strong Suspension Exercises System. I have spoken with the company and they have assure me that they are putting together digital materials to help all of their new users to get started confidently.@FEStrongFit Suspension System Review and discount code #TrainBold #suspensiontraining Click To Tweet
