Primary: Chest, Shoulder, Arms, Abdominals (pectoralis, deltoideus, trizeps brachii, abdomini)
Secondary: Back (erector spinae)

This exercise is a great way to prepare the body for more strenuous push-up exercises. The depositing of the legs reduces the tension on abdominals and back muscles. The exercise is performed in single-handle mode.

Suspension Training Exercise For Chest Workout

Starting Position

One hand grabs the handle of the VarioSling.
The palm facing to the rear and both elbows
are straight. Both hands are at equal distance
from the body. Feet are hip width apart. Both
lower legs are placed on the floor.

Final Position

The  upper  body  is  stretched  and  lowered.
One hand gripping the handle, the elbow is
positioned  well  behind  shoulder.  The  palm
facing backward. Both elbows are bent shar-
ply. The lower leg touching the ground, your
thighs are still in the air.

Movement 1

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.

Movement 2

By stretching both arms, the upper body is pushed back into the starting position.


If you have mastered the movement perfectly try to perfom this exercises in the normal push-up position. The more you flex your elbows the more intensive the exercise.
