It’s time to make gravity work in your favour. Sure, it keeps your feet firmly on the ground but it can also result in other body parts moving closer to the ground as well. Has my bottom always been that saggy? And my upper arms that flabby? Actually, my whole body seems to be gravitating to the floor!
So let’s turn this around or at least use gravity to undo the effects of gravity. Suspension Training is a term currently being thrown around in the fitness industry and has been for some time – however its popularity is ever increasing.
Suspension Training is an innovative approach to strength training using a system of ropes, your own bodyweight and gravity to perform hundreds of exercises. This system of fitness training dates back to the 1900’s. Invented by former Navy Seal, Randy Hendrick, Suspension Training is widely used in military programmes as it is one of the most versatile functional training systems to put into practice.
All you need is a Suspension Trainer (length adjustable straps) and a temporarily fixed anchor spot – a tank, a tree a pole; anything that can withstand your bodyweight and you’re ready to start training. There is a huge variety of exercises that can be done using a Suspension Trainer to challenge any area of your body. If you focus on core training and pulling exercises you can change into various positions to shift your centre of gravity, thus working out various muscle groups and parts of your body.
So what’s in it for me you ask? Well if you are looking for a more portable and affordable way to exercise and gain maximum strength development and core stability this is for you. However if you’re not quite game enough to try it on your own VenuesWest Arena Joondalup will soon be introducing courses tailored to Suspension Training. Watch this space...
Well I’m suddenly feeling a lot better about gravity... So let’s harness gravity against our bodyweight and achieve an overall body workout!
