Suspension Training Exercise For Abdominals

Starting/Final Position:

Depending on the desired intensity both feet are hung up in the loops. The body is supported sidewise on the stretched arm. The other hand is placed on the hip. The body builds a line with the hip and the toes are tightened.


No motion, only strain of the muscles.


Make sure your hands have a strong position to support the balance. The more you remove your body from the suspension point, the more intensive the exercise is.
