suspension training can help you get flat belly

To streamline the stomach people usually do sit-up exercises. But unfortunately many who complain sit ups make pain in the back and tail bone. Complaints rarely appear in suspension training, one way to tighten the stomach by soldiers.

Unlike the sit-ups that are directly working on the abdominal muscles, suspension training involves more muscle so that more variety. But of the many, there are 2 variations of the technique most often done in places of fitness and military barracks.

The first variation is to hang both legs with a rope, while the upper part of the body performs movements such as push ups and the like.

While the next variation and more preferred the general public is holding the rope, then standing with a position leaning forward or backward according to the type of movement to be performed.

The principle of suspension training is to use your own weight to train muscle strength, with a tool just a webbing strung or hung on a wall. Because the equipment is simple, balance is the main thing in this exercise.

But precisely because it is required to always maintain balance, abdominal muscle strength will be needed. If done correctly, then by itself the abdominal muscles will tighten so it looks more slender.

"This exercise is like yoga with a rope because it gives priority to balance, for me it's a combination of muscle and cardiology," says Mark Undercoffler, a San Francisco private employee who enjoys suspension training.

Although providing benefits for the stomach, the principle of balance in suspension training also has a negative side. For those who are not trained or do not have strong posture and body core, this exercise can trigger serious injury.

"Instead of using core posture to balance yourself, an untrained person will use the wrong muscle so that it can be injured," said Dr Fabio Camana, a researcher from the American Council on Exercise, as quoted by the NY Times, Thursday.

According to Dr Camana, this exercise is more suitable for athletes and soldiers who are physically more trained. As for those who have a history of joint injury or posture is less strong, he does not recommend this exercise.

Although initially only soldiers in military barracks, now everyone can do it at home because the equipment is easy to get. Two well-known companies that provide such tools are TRX and Inkaflexx.
