Two Great Suspension Training Exercises

Top Picks for Upper Body Conditioning and Core Strength

1.  Suspended Side Plank:  Lower suspension cables so they hover about 12-14 inches off the floor.  Using your forearms for support, place your feet into the suspended cables.  Move your upper body into a push-up position.  Gradually rotate (spiral) to one side.  Hold  position for a few seconds and repeat on the other side.  You can alternate repetitions between each side or perform multiple sets (8-10 reps each) on one side before switching to the other side.

2.  Angled Push-Up on One Leg:  Raise suspension cables to armpit height or above.  Grasp the cable handles and move forward into a leaning position.  The greater the lean, the harder the exercise.  Lift one leg keep it elevated throughout the duration of your set.  Perform 12-15 push-ups, or as many as needed to reach a state of momentary muscle fatigue without losing your form.
