Suspension training refers to a form of strength training in which a piece of equipment called a suspension trainer is used to perform exercise with your own body weight as resistance. Exercises are performed in a suspended state (with your feet or hands on the trainer).
The physios at Ergoworks love the concept of suspension training as it’s functional and multiplanar. This means that the exercises are performed in multiple planes of motion using numerous muscles and different joints simultaneously, mimicking closely the action in which we perform everyday activities. Exercises can be easily scaled to suit the individual’s level of training and/or rehab requirements, and due to the portability of the system, exercises can be performed practically anywhere. The suspension trainer is attached to an anchor point such as a door, tree or bar. Other than the space needed to perform the exercises, no other equipment is needed.
