Suspension Training UPPER BODY

This form of training takes body weight exercises to a whole new level. Here are three upper body exercises to get you beach ready.


Keep your body in a straight line, arms both straight, and lean forward until your body is at about 40 degree angle. Bend at the elbows and lower your body down until your chest reaches the handles. Now push yourself back up. You can modify this exercise by moving your feet are closer to the handles using less of your own bodyweight. (Do 3 sets 10-12 reps).


Starting position: Holding the suspension handles in each hand, turn yourself to face the anchor point. Palms face inwards. Brace torso by contracting your core/abdominal muscles. Gently lean backwards Exhale and slowly bend elbows closer to the ribs, pulling entire body towards hands. Pull your shoulder blades down and back. Return to starting position by straightening elbows.           (Do 3 sets 10-12 reps)


Grab a handle with each hand palms facing toward you. Lean back and pull the cables tights. Bend your arms at the elbow and burl yourself to the handles. Lower yourself back to starting position.   (Do 3 sets 10-12 reps)

So don’t be scared of something new…Give suspension training a try. You’ll be glad you did. Keep moving and always keep fitness first.
