Sling It

Suspension systems like sling trainers use your bodyweight to make your exercises more challenging. If you are looking for a way to mix up your training, a sling trainer is THE perfect alternative training equipment.

Strap systems are commonly known under the brand name TRX, but a variety of other good quality systems exist.

Free-hanging vs. Door-hooks

The Best Solution = A Bar

There are 2 types of systems. The free-hanging version requires either a chin-up bar, or a similar free-standing bar, or ceiling hooks, which can be used as a hook for the anchors. The door-hook version can be used on most common door frames with a regular closing door.
The free-hanging version offers a wider variety of available exercises, but might require you to drill some holes into your ceiling…

Workout Number 2

Exercise #1 – Overhead Squat

Start Position – Arms Overhead

Start with your arms extended overhead, facing the anchor. Squat down, leave arms extended overhead – keep torso tight and upright.
