Within this push-up variant, the body is put in a very unstable position. It demands an immensely
high level of body tension and balance ability. The exercise is done in single-handle mode and is
suitable only for advanced users.

|Suspension Training For Chest Workout
One hand grabs the handle of the VarioSling.
The upper body is stretched and lowered.
The elbow joints are bent simultaneously. The elbow close to the VarioSling is flexed so far that the other elbow is flexed approximately 90 degrees. Perform compensation movements if you have trouble keeping the balance.
By extension of the arms, the upper body is pushed back into the starting position.
You can intensify the exercise intensity by changing the flexion angle of the elbow joints of the arms or the distance between both arms. The less compensation movements required, the better your body balance and your sense of coordination.
