Maybe you already have some experience with a suspension trainer, but you need fresh ideas for your suspension trainer workouts? Or perhaps you’re just looking for a new kind of full-body workout to try? In this article, we will show you the twelve best suspension trainer exercises you can perform with FREESIXD.

 

1. Push-up variation 1 – easy

  • Slide the buckle upwards, and attach the sling straps and handles. Adjust the sling straps to the desired length (such that you can stretch your arms while holding the handles).
  • Starting position: face away from the device. Stand in an upright position with your feet hip-width apart and parallel to one another. Grab the handles from above (thumbs pointing in, pinkies pointing out). Tense your whole body and lean forward into the support position with yours arms extended until the sling straps are under tension.
  • Tuck your elbows into your body while bending your arms.
  • Hold the final position for a moment before returning to the starting position in a controlled manner.

2. Push-up variation 2 – challenging

  • Position the buckle at chest height, and attach the sling straps and handles. Adjust the sling straps to the desired length. (The shorter the straps, the more intense the exercise.)
  • Starting position: hook your feet into the handles with the tops of your feet facing down. Assume the initial push-up position: your wrists should be in line with your shoulders.
  • Tense your entire body, bend your arms, and tuck your elbows in.
  • Hold the final position for a moment before returning to the starting position in a controlled manner.
