If you’ve gotten a strong hold on your workout routine, it may be time to try something a bit more challenging. One such exercise is suspension training.
Suspension training offers maximum resistance training for your body by using ropes that work to engage your body weight. By allowing your body to perform its natural movements, you maximize your fitness workout by toning your your core, increasing your strength, and working on your stability.
