Why You Should Add Suspension Training To Your Exercise Program

Why You Should Add Suspension Training To Your Exercise Program

Whether you’re looking to start building a home gym, you want to do additional workouts at home, or you want something you can take with when you travel, suspension trainers are a effective way to add resistance training to your workouts. Adding suspension training to your workouts allows you to develop functional balance, flexibility and strength, as well as joint and core stability, and are in incredible workout tool for overall fitness.

What Are The Benefits of Suspension Training?

Benefit #1 – They’re Versatile: Whether you’re new to exercise, or a professional athlete, suspension trainers allow you to adapt your routines to your current fitness level. Since you’re using your own body weight to control resistance, you can “add” or “lower” the difficulty level of an exercise just by changing up the position of your feet or hands, or the angle of your body. For example, your stance has an impact on your workout – narrowing your stance can engage more core muscles, while widening your stance gives you more stability as you gain strength.

Benefit #2 – They’re Portable: Once you’re made exercise a lifestyle habit, you may want to keep that habit going while traveling. But finding a local gym while traveling can be challenging. Body weight training with a suspension trainer allows you to do hundreds of exercises, with a compact, light weight training tool that you can take with you while traveling on business or while on vacation, helping you to stay fit while avoiding missing your workouts.

Benefit #3 – They’re Great For Building Core Strength: Your core muscles is a group of muscles between your hips and shoulders – they stabilize your spine and pelvis. They give you a stable foundation for the rest of your body’s movements. Using a suspension trainer, you’re forced to engage those muscles to maintain proper position and technique for your workouts!

Benefit #4 – They’re Perfect for HIIT Training: Metabolic training is where you exercise at a high intensity for a short period of time, and are a hallmark of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). This type of training increases your body’s metabolic rate, so you burn more calories during – and after – your workout. Because you transition quickly between exercises while using a suspension trainer, they are an excellent tool for increasing your metabolic rate during exercise.

Benefit #5 – They Keep You From Getting Bored: Let’s face it – sometimes, your workouts get boring. Doing the same exercise each time not only can keep you from wanting to workout, but your workout effectiveness can plateau. With so many different workouts available, suspension trainers can keep your workouts fun, while also improving their effectiveness.
