Suspension work outs. Do you dream of defying gravity, Cirque du Soleil style? Or flying through the air with the greatest of ease? Suspension training can help you accomplish both and get a full body workout. This popular fitness trend entails leveraging your body weight by hanging, swinging or gripping straps while performing a variety of moves.
“Suspension training gives you the most bang for your buck,” says Todd Durkin, an exercise physiologist and spokesperson for IDEA Health and Fitness Association. “You get your cardio while incorporating strength, stability and core training all at the same time.”
