Suspended movement training, using ropes or straps, has become increasingly popular over recent years and with good reason. While using only one's bodyweight for resistance training may appear unchallenging, the instability of being suspended from a rope or strap magnifies the effects of overcoming gravity, exploits principles of leverage and mechanical advantage, and significantly challenges the entire musculature of the body.
This is a very dynamic form of exercise requiring excellent core strength, stability and control. As such it presents an excellent all-round body workout for the well-conditioned, as well as a fun and challenging workout for anybody looking to develop core strength and control at the same time as increasing functional muscle capability.
