3 Best Suspension Training Exercises for Your Abs

3 Best Suspension Training Exercises for Your Abs

When working your abs, you have a lot of different pieces of equipment at your disposal, and—for the most part—they all do a decent job. However, if you want rock solid abs that you can bounce a quarter off of, then suspension training is the way to go.

In fact, here are the four best ab exercises when choosing this type of workout:


#1: Extended Plank

Stand so that the straps are waist high and grab the handles. In a slow and controlled motion, lean your body forward while extending your arms straight above your head (as if you are raising your hands to ask a question), keeping your back and legs straight as you go. Hold for a count of four and return to the starting position.


#2: Plank Reverse Crunch

This ab exercise starts with you in a plank or pushup position. The palms of your hands should be on the floor and your feet should be in the strap cradles. Slowly draw your knees in until they are close to your chest, hold, then return to the original starting position.


#3: Rock Climbers

Start in the plank or pushup position with the palms of your hands on the floor and your feet in the strap cradles. Keeping your right leg straight, slowly bring your left knee in close to your chest, lifting your pelvic region slightly. Return your left leg to the starting position and then do the same thing with the right leg. Each set counts as one.


Do these four ab suspension training exercises and you’ll have a trim and tone midsection.
